    For I, the LORD, love justice, I hate robbery in the burnt offering; And I will faithfully give them their recompense And make an everlasting covenant with them. Therefore the LORD longs to be gracious to you, And therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you For the LORD is a God of justice; How blessed are all those who long for Him. God is being and goodness, and his creation is a hierarchy in which each existing thing is good in its own order (so that evil is simply a matter of relative good). The recognition of God as such a spirit also answers the second Manichee challenge, which concerns the statement in Genesis that man is made in God's image.
