Uncertainty is an increasingly important concept in modern science and mathematics, which was largely undeveloped by the Greek philosophers.

An intrinsic uncertainty is the focus of the Parable of the Wheat and the Chaff, Matthew 13:24-30, which implies that perhaps not even God can initially and easily distinguish between those on his side and those who are against him in this world, or ideas which are good and those that are evil.

The word "uncertainty" is not mentioned in the KJV of the Bible, but there is this express reference to "uncertainty" at 1 Timothy 6:17 in more modern translations:[1]

Instruct those who are rich in this present world not to be conceited or to fix their hope on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly supplies us with all things to enjoy.
