2 It is the glory of Hashem to conceal a matter, And the glory of a king to plumb a matter.

25:2 It is the glory of Hashem to conceal a matter
The glory of earthly kings is made greater through scrutiny and investigation, both on their own part and when conducted by others. When the kings search out the truth in order to do justice, they bring honor to themselves, and when others look into their actions, they respect such leaders for their righteousness. Hashem’s glory, on the other hand, is made greater by concealment. His miracles and actions are beyond human understanding, and though they are recorded in the Bible, many are shrouded in mystery.
