The Athanasian Creed: Third Month—Day 2

12. As also there are not three uncreated, nor three infinites, but one uncreated, and one infinite.

Scripture

There is none like You, O Lord;
You are great, and Your name is mighty in power.
Who should not revere You, O King of the nations?
It is Your rightful due.
For among all the wise men of the nations
And in all their kingdoms,
There is no one like You. (Jeremiah 10:6-7)
