The words of the LORD are pure words

Daily Light Devotions - October 9 - Evening

The words of the LORD are pure words.

The words of the LORD are pure words, like silver refined in a furnace on the ground, purified seven times. 1 

Your promise is well tried, and your servant loves it. 2 

the precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes; 3 

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. 4 

I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you. I will meditate on your precepts and fix my eyes on your ways. 5 

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. 6 

Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation-- 7 

For we are not, like so many, peddlers of God's word, but as men of sincerity, as commissioned by God, in the sight of God we speak in Christ. 8 

But we have renounced disgraceful, underhanded ways. We refuse to practice cunning or to tamper with God's word, but by the open statement of the truth we would commend ourselves to everyone's conscience in the sight of God. 9
