Hebrews 4:12; James 1:22; 2 Timothy 3:16–17; John 6:68; John 14:21; John 17:17; Isaiah 40:8; Isaiah 55:10–11; Jeremiah 15:16

12 For wthe word of God is living and xactive, ysharper than any ztwo-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and adiscerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.


22 But be ndoers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.


16 dAll Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 that ethe man of God1 may be complete, fequipped gfor every good work.


68 Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? You have hthe words of eternal life,


21 pWhoever has my commandments and qkeeps them, he it is who loves me. And rhe who loves me swill be loved by my Father, and I will love him and tmanifest myself to him.


17 lSanctify them1 in the truth; myour word is truth.


jThe grass withers, the flower fades,

but the word of our God will stand forever.


10  qFor as the rain and the snow come down from heaven

and do not return there but water the earth,

making it bring forth and sprout,

rgiving seed to the sower and bread to the eater,

11  so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth;

it shall not return to me empty,

but sit shall accomplish that which I purpose,

and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.


16  Your words were found, wand I ate them,

and xyour words became to me a joy

and the delight of my heart,

yfor I am called by your name,

O Lord, God of hosts.
