Psalms 145:3

Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.
Read Chapter 145

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
2. "Great is the Lord, and very much to be praised" (ver. 3). How much was he about to say? what terms was he about to seek? How vast a conception hath he included in the one word, "very much"? Imagine what thou wilt, for how can that be imagined, which cannot be contained? "He is very much to be praised. And of His Greatness there is no end;" therefore said he "very much:" lest perchance thou begin to wish to praise, and think that thou canst reach the end of His praises, whose Greatness can have no end. Think not then that He, whose Greatness has no end, can ever be enough praised by thee. Is it not then better that as He has no end, so neither should thy praise have end? His Greatness is without end; let thy praise also be without end. ...

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
End. Hebrew, "finding out "because he is infinite. (Berthier) (Job v. 9.)
