The Athanasian Creed: Third Month—Day 8

18. And yet not three Lords, but one Lord.


The Lord of hosts is wonderful in counsel and great in wisdom.
You are the Lord,
And there is no savior besides You.
From ancient days You are He,
And no one can deliver out of Your hand;
You act, and who can reverse it? (Isaiah 28:29; 43:11, 13)
