What the Bible says about It Self

My objective below was to try to find as many scriptures as I could that speak to the authority and reliability of scripture. Like many of my surveys from Genesis to Revelation, this is not exhaustive. And I’m sure I will add to it over time. But hopefully there is enough below to help one see that you can bank your life and eternity on the scriptures.

Old Testament:

 “Everything that I command you, you shall be careful to do. You shall not add to it or take from it.  Deut. 12:32

The words of the Lord are pure words, like silver refined in a furnace on the ground, purified seven times.  Psalm 12:6

The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; the precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes; the fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the rules of the Lord are true, and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb. Moreover, by them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.  Psa. 19:7-11

For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.  Heb. 4:12
