What the Bible says about It Self

Updated: Dec 3, 2019

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

“Seven times a day I praise You, because of Your righteous ordinances.” Psalm 119:164


“Let my tongue sing of Your word, For all Your commandments are righteousness.” Psalm 119:172


Every word of God proves true; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him. Do not add to his words, lest he rebuke you and you be found a liar. Prov. 30:5,6


The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever. Isa. 40:8

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
