The Eternal, The Everlasting, The Satisfier of Every Need
The One who is eternal and above whom there is none. The One who is unaffected, unchanged, and without any needs.
The One who is besought by all, and who is above all. The One who can satisfy every need and without whom no affair could be accomplished.
The One who satisfies every need as it should be satisfied, and not necessarily as mankind might imagine.
The One who is the sole recourse, the
only one to turn to. The One upon whom all depend, yet who does not depend on any.
