Chapter 2: Of God, and of the Holy Trinity (II)

II. God has all life,(a) glory,(b) goodness,(c) blessedness,(d) in and of himself; and is alone in and unto Himself all-sufficient, not standing in need of any creatures which He has made,(e) nor deriving any glory from them,(f) but only manifesting His own glory in, by, unto, and upon them. He is the alone fountain of all being, of whom, through whom, and to whom are all things;(g) and has most sovereign dominion over them, to do by them, for them, or upon them whatsoever Himself pleases.(h) In His sight all things are open and manifest,(i) His  knowledge is infinite, infallible, and independent upon the creature,(j) so as nothing is to Him contingent, or uncertain.(k) He is most holy in all His counsels, in all His works, and in all His commands.(l) To Him is due from angels and men, and every other creature, whatsoever worship, service, or obedience He is pleased to require of them.(m)
