..."and a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the way of holiness; evil minded people shall not travel on it, but it shall be for those wayfarers who are traveling toward God. (Isaiah 35:8, adapted)

The Holiness of God

"Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of Hosts" Isaiah 6:3

Holiness is the harmony of all virtues. The Lord
has not one glorious attribute alone, or in excess,
but all glories are in Him as a whole; this is the
crown of His honour and the honour of His crown.

His power is not his choicest jewel, nor His
sovereignty, but His holiness. In this all
comprehensive moral excellence He would
have His creatures take delight.
