the word of god (the bible)

All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.  God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.  2 Timothy 3:16 -17

Above all, you must realize that no prophecy in Scripture ever came from the prophet’s own understanding, or from human initiative. No, those prophets were moved by the Holy Spirit, and they spoke from God.  2 Peter 1:20-21

Long ago God spoke many times and in many ways to our ancestors through the prophets.  And now in these final days, he has spoken to us through his Son. God promised everything to the Son as an inheritance, and through the Son he created the universe.  Hebrew 1:1-2

God is not a man, so he does not lie.

    He is not human, so he does not change his mind.

Has he ever spoken and failed to act?

    Has he ever promised and not carried it through?  Numbers 23:19

The very essence of your words is truth;

    all your just regulations will stand forever.  Psalm 119:160

Make them holy by your truth; teach them your word, which is truth.  John 17:17

And you know that the Scriptures cannot be altered.  John 10:35a

New Living Translation

English Standard Version

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16 -17

...knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone's own interpretation. For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit. 2 Peter 1:20-21

Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. Hebrews 1:1-2

God is not man, that he should lie,

    or a son of man, that he should change his mind.

Has he said, and will he not do it?

    Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it? Numbers 23:19

The sum of your word is truth,

    and every one of your righteous rules endures forever. Psalm 119:160

Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. John 17:17

...and Scripture cannot be broken— John 10:35b
