A simple Bible search for 'almighty' would have given you more than enough passages about omnipotence. The first mention, for example, is:
For omniscience, similarly many, many passages exist -- the combination of them shows quite strongly that God is omniscient. For example:
He is definitely almighty. There are many psalms that praise his power, and say that there is no one like God. Revelations states:
God, is definitely all-knowing. He knows the hearts and intents of men. He knows what they are going to do. In Matthew, it shows that Jesus is able to discern the thoughts of people:
Others can provide a more comprehensive list of Scripture, but time and time again in the Bible, it has been made quite clear that God is supreme and divine, knowing all, having power over all, and is everywhere. He is infinite.
Jesus proclaims to John in the book of Revelation His own might and glory. Also, 2 Timothy 3:16, "All scripture is inspired by God (literally "God Breathed")..." That is why they quote other scripture because it is God using the words He gave to those who wrote the books to declare who He is to us.
In Jeremiah 17:10 He also claims to have the power to know every mind and heart, and not only that but to have the power and authority to judge the ways and deeds of that man. “I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give to each man according to his ways, According to the results of his deeds."
Also, 2 Timothy 3:16, "All scripture is inspired by God (literally "God Breathed")..." That is why they quote other scripture because it is God using the words He gave to those who wrote the books to declare who He is to us.
