(ahm nih' ssshence) The state of being all-knowing which theology ascribes to God. Though Scripture affirms God's immeasurable understanding (Psalm 147:5 ), God's omniscience is not a matter of abstract speculation. Rather, God's knowing is a matter of personal experience. God knows us intimately (Psalm 139:1-6 ; Matthew 6:4 ,Matthew 6:4,6:6 ,Matthew 6:6,6:8 ). Such knowledge is cause for alarm for the unrighteous but for confidence for God's saints (Job 23:10 ; Psalm 34:15-16 ; Psalm 90:8 ; Proverbs 15:3 ; 1 Peter 3:12 ). See God .
