The Athanasian Creed: Third Month—Day 10

21. The Father is made of none; neither created, nor begotten.

Scripture

And the four living creatures, each having six wings, were full of eyes around and within; and they do not rest day or night, saying,
“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty,
Who was, and is, and is to come.” (Revelation 4:8)
