Looking for a Bible verse

Recommended Posts

I know the expression "God is not surprised by this" but is there scripture to back it up? I mean like one or 2 verses. I know there is plenty of prophesy in the Bible and you can find where so much of it has come true in the past.


Even a scripture that points to God as being omniscient would help. I'm just lost on the words to look up in my concordance.

The Biblegateway is a great site. Of course the word surprise isn't in there.

Maybe this verse at Numbers 23:19

God is not a man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill?


Another good one is Psalm 44:21b

For he knows the secrets of the heart.

Habakkuk 1:5 (King James)


"Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvellously: for I will work a work in your days, which ye will not believe, though it be told you."


(NIV version)

"Look at the nations and watch- and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told."
