The Sovereignty of God in the Apostolic Fathers: BibleWorks 8.0 Apostolic Fathers Module

The following is from BibleWorks 8.0's search of the Apostolic Fathers in English.  BibleWorks also has the Apostolic Fathers in Greek.  I did a search for "Scripture" or "Scriptures" and had 50 hits in 47 verses of the Apostolic Fathers.  E-mail me and I will be glad to send you the verse list with references.

 

Since then all things are seen and heard by God, let us fear Him, and forsake those wicked works which proceed from evil desires; so that, through His mercy, we may be protected from the judgments to come. 2 For whither can any of us flee from His mighty hand? Or what world will receive any of those who run away from Him? 3 For the Scripture saith in a certain place, Whither shall I go, and where shall I be hid from Thy presence? If I ascend into heaven, Thou art there; if I go away even to the uttermost parts of the earth, there is Thy right hand; if I make my bed in the abyss, there is Thy Spirit. 4 Whither, then, shall any one go, or where shall he escape from Him who comprehends all things?  (1 Clement 28:1-4)

Let us then draw near to Him with holiness of spirit, lifting up pure and undefiled hands unto Him, loving our gracious and merciful Father, who has made us partakers in the blessings of His elect. 2 For thus it is written, When the Most High divided the nations, when He scattered the sons of Adam, He fixed the bounds of the nations according to the number of the angels of God. His people Jacob became the portion of the Lord, and Israel the lot of His inheritance. 3 And in another place the Scripture saith, Behold, the Lord taketh unto Himself a nation out of the midst of the nations, as a man takes the first-fruits of his threshing-floor; and from that nation shall come forth the Most Holy. (1 Clement 29:1-3 APE)

  Glory be to the Father, and to the Son : and to the Holy Ghost;
    Answer. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be : world without end. Amen.
