Definition of God

If pressed for a definition of God, or how one can know that God works in history, an ancient Hebrew would give an answer something like the one given by jazz artist Louis Armstrong, who, when asked to define jazz, replied, “Man, if you have to ask, you’ll never know.”

Hamilton, The Handbook on the Pentateuch
