a conception finds no counterpart in the goodness of God. The goodness of God is
spoken of in the same breath as His greatness, His holiness and His righteousness.
Some of the attributes of God are raised by the figure Metonymy, and made to stand as
titles for God Himself. Thus we read: "Except the God of my father, the God of
Abraham, and the FEAR of Isaac, had been with me" (Gen. 31: 42). So it is with this
all-pervading attribute of goodness: "Blessed be the Lord . . . . . My goodness, and my
fortress; my high tower, and my deliverer; my shield, and He in Whom I trust"
(Psa. 144: 1, 2).
"Thou art good, and doest good." "This God is our God."
