Is the purity and rectitude of his nature. It is an essential attribute of God, and what is the glory, lustre, and harmony of all his other perfections, Psalms 27:4 . Exodus 15:11 . He could not be God without it, Deuteronomy 32:4 . It is infinite and unbounded; it cannot be increased or diminished. Immutable and invariable, Malachi 3:6 . God is originally holy; he is so of and in himself, and the author and promoter of all holiness among his creatures. The holiness of God is visible by his works; he made all things holy, Genesis 1:31 . By his providences, all which are to promote holiness in the end, Hebrews 12:10 . By his grace, which influences the subjects of it to be holy, Titus 2:10 ; Titus 2:12 . By his word, which commands it, 1 Peter 1:1-25 . By his ordinances, which he hath appointed for that end, Jeremiah 44:4-5 . By the punishment of sin in the death of Christ, Is. 53: and by the eternal punishment of it in wicked men, Matthew 25:1-46 : last verse.
