Exodus 15:11: “Who is like you, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like you, majestic in holiness, awesome in glorious deeds, doing wonders?
The holiness of God is often assigned a place among the moral attributes of the divine nature; yet, strictly speaking, it is not a single attribute, but rather a combination of all the moral attributes of God. If we consider this combination, this aggregation, of moral perfections, and gaze upon the glory radiating therefrom, we shall probably have the scriptural idea of "the beauty of holiness." Words like goodness, justice, truth, etc are all comprehended in holiness. Holiness is not an attribute distinct from goodness, or truth or justice, but a name which includes them all. Holiness renders the divine character the bright center in which all the lines of moral perfection and beauty and glory meet.
