Holy God

Holy God is one of the descriptive names of God. In this case, it highlights His holiness, which means that He is “set apart” from His creation in purity and power, and in every one of the attributes of God.

For instance Holy One of Israel and simply, Holy One. In the New Testament Jesus (Yeshua‘) is called the Holy and Righteous One and God’s Holy Servant, and God is called the Holy Father.
