Metaphorical Supports of Masonry

What are the metaphorical supports of Masonry? Wisdom, Strength, and Beauty; the three great pillars, or metaphorical supports, and it is a singular coincidence, and worthy of thought, that the letters composing the English name of Deity should be the initials of the Hebrew words wisdom, strength, and beauty; G.O.D. Gomer, Oz, and Dabar. — ( Psalm 111:10 - Job 12:13 - Psalm 27:4 )
