“Yaweh (God) is wise but not omniscient and makes use of councilors (1 Kings 22:20-23; Isa. 6:3; Jer. 23:18; Ps. 82:1; 98:5; Job 1:6; etc.) and intelligence services to spy on the subjects in order to ascertain their loyalty (Job 1-2; Zech. 3; 1 Chron 21; etc.)” Jaco Gericke in Can God Exist if Yahweh Doesn’t ?

...God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. (1John 3:20)

And don’t forget the 139th Psalm:

O Lord, thou has searched me and know me.  Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.  Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.  For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether…etc

Biblical contradictions are part of the fun of being a believer.  You get to pick your favorite passage.

Or you can just choose the “back passage”, that’s my favourite and then flush…. LOL

I personally don’t know how a believer is supposed to figure out what they’re supposed to believe.  I’m glad I’m not religious.
