Non est símilis tui in diis, Dómine,* et nihil sicut ópera tua

Non est símilis tui in diis, Dómine,* et nihil sicut ópera tua. There is none alike to you among the gods, Lord * and nothing like your works.

similis,e – like, similar, comparing

St. Augustine in his commentary on this psalm writes: “What did he say? “Among the gods,” etc. Let the Pagans make for themselves what gods they will; let them bring workmen in silver and in gold, furbishers, sculptors; let them make gods. What kind of gods? Having eyes, and seeing not; and the other things which the Psalm mentions in what follows. But we do not worship these, he says; we do not worship them, these are symbols.”
