CommentaryVincent's Word Studies
O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge. So both A.V. and Rev., making depth govern riches, and riches govern wisdom and knowledge. Others, more simply, make the three genitives coordinate, and all governed by depth: the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge. "Like a traveler who has reached the summit of an Alpine ascent, the apostle turns and contemplates. Depths are at his feet, but waves of light illumine them, and there spreads all around an immense horizon which his eye commands" (Godet). Compare the conclusion of ch. 8.
"Therefore into the justice sempiternal

As eye into the ocean penetrates;
Which, though it see the bottom near the shore,
Upon the deep perceives it not, and yet

"Wash You, Make You Clean; Put Away the Evil of Your Doings from Before Mine Eyes; Cease to do Evil,"
who does great things and unsearchable, marvelous things without number:
"Can you find out the deep things of God? Can you find out the limit of the Almighty?
Have you listened in the council of God? And do you limit wisdom to yourself?
The Almighty--we cannot find him; he is great in power; justice and abundant righteousness he will not violate.
Your righteousness is like the mountains of God; your judgments are like the great deep; man and beast you save, O LORD.
How great are your works, O LORD! Your thoughts are very deep!
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high; I cannot attain it.
