PS 139.4; JN 16.30
For there is not a word on my tongue,
But behold, O Lord, You know it altogether.
Now we are sure that You know all things, and have no need that anyone should question You. By this we believe that You came forth from God."

Definition and Notes:
Authors to Help Us Understand God’s Omnipresence
Augustus H. Strong – p. 282: "God’s perfect and eternal knowledge of all things which are objects of knowledge, whether they be actual or possible, past, present, or future."
Henry Thiessen, Lectures in Systematic Theology, p. 124.
By omniscience of God we mean that He knows Himself and all other things, whether they be actual or merely possible, whether they be past, present, or future, and He knows them perfectly and from all eternity. He knows things immediately, simultaneously, exhaustively, and truly. He knows the best ways to attain His desired ends.
Illustrationsof God’s Omniscience in Scripture.
Hannah’s trust in God’s knowledge allowed her to endure the cruel mocking of her adversarial co-family member Peninnah: See the story in 1 Samuel 1.
1Samuel 2:1 And Hannah prayed, and said, My heart rejoiceth in the LORD, mine horn is exalted in the LORD: my mouth is enlarged over mine enemies; because I rejoice in thy salvation.
2 There is none holy as the LORD: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God.
3 Talk no more so exceeding proudly; let not arrogancy come out of your mouth: for the LORD is a God of knowledge, and by him actions are weighed.
4 The bows of the mighty men are broken, and they that stumbled are girded with strength.
5 They that were full have hired out themselves for bread; and they that were hungry ceased: so that the barren hath born seven; and she that hath many children is waxed feeble.
