For example:

Our Lord, and send among them a messenger from themselves who will recite to them Your verses and teach them the Book and wisdom and purify them. Indeed, You are the Exalted in Might, the Wise." (2:129)

We can safely assume that these pairs do not appear randomly. We can equally safely assume that their order do not appear randomly. In various lectures I remember hearing that there is great wisdom in these pairs as well as their orders—so much so, that when we see them we should pause and ponder as to why they are specifically chosen by Allah.

Are there English sources which analyze in depth the significance of Allah's names coming in pairs? (If there are only Arabic sources, I would also like to know them.)
