not searched out, i.e. (by implication) inscrutable:—unsearchable
not tracked out, i.e. (by implication) untraceable:—past finding out; unsearchable.
that cannot be comprehended
past finding out
These two Greek words almost look alike, mean almost the same thing with just slight changes.
Versions of the Bible use different words to lay this meaning out before us:
Oh, how great are God’s riches and wisdom and knowledge! How impossible it is for us to understand his decisions and his ways! NLT
Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out! NKJV
Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out! NIV
Oh, the depth of the riches
both of the wisdom and the knowledge of God!
How unsearchable His judgments
and untraceable His ways! HCSB
Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways! NASB
Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how fathomless his ways! NET
Impossible, untraceable, beyond our ability to trace or to find out, unfathomable…the greatness of God, His Omnipotence, His Omniscience, His Omnipresence…He is far more than we can possibly understand at this time.
Your righteousness is like the mountains of God;
Your judgments are like the great deep;
man and beast You save, O LORD. Psalm 36:6
Your way was through the sea,
Your path through the great waters;
yet Your footprints were unseen. Psalm 77:19
God, You are more than my mind can wrap around yet my heart feels Your love and Your care for me. I know You are with me and hear my prayer. You are unsearchable but I am learning more and more about You. I am in love with You and praise You for Who You are. I thank You with my whole heart for saving me through Your Son’s sacrifice and His love for me, for many such as I. He was resurrected from the grave and told His disciples that He will return for them, for me. One day, we will be together and You will still be more than I could have imagined here on this earth. Will I be able to fathom You even then, Abba Father? Your mercy, Your grace, Your greatness, Your faithfulness, Your power and Your might? Jesus said that we may not understand but one day we will. I look forward to that day, Abba Father. I lift this prayer in the Name of Jesus. Amen.
Jesus answered him, “What I am doing you do not understand now, but afterward you will understand.” John 13:7
