Calvin on the sovereignty of God over evil

". . . a secret so much excelling the insight of the human mind that I am not ashamed to confess ignorance. Far be it from any of the faithful to be ashamed of ignorance of what the Lord withdraws into the glory of his inaccessible light."

John Calvin, Concerning the Eternal Predestination of God, translated by J. K. S. Reid, page 124.
