Glory in Excellence

O LORD, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth, Who have set Your glory above the heavens!(Psalm 8:1, Holy Bible, New King James)

Good, better, best―comparative terms in the English language. If I like something, I say it is good. If I compare two items, I designate one as better. If I judge three or more items, I select one as the best.

When the Psalmist speaks of the glory of God, there is no comparison. He describes God as excellent, a superlative that means matchless, unbeatable, unconquerable, and undefeated. His glory is beyond comparison.

Prayer: Lord, oh Lord, Your name is beyond description. It is higher than the highest, deeper than the deepest, wider than the widest, incomparable. Amen.
