The Holy One of Israel: Psalm 78:41

In this text we find two properties of God put together in one verse: the transcendence and the immanence of God. The transcendence of God is defined in terms of the perfect Holiness of God "The Holy One." The immanence of God is immediately emphasised by the phrase "of Israel." The point: God comes near to us to make us holy.
