Flashcards in Scripture Deck (13):
2 Peter 1:19-21
And we have something more sure, the prophetic word, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts, 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 Timothy 3:16-17
All Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, rebuking, correction, and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any double-edged sword, piercing until it divides soul and spirit, joints and marrow, as it judges the thoughts and purposes of the heart.
Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what is says. Anyone who hears the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at himself in a mirror and after looking at himslef goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But the one who looks at the perfect law of freedom and remains committed to it—thereby demonstrating that he is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of what that law requires—will be blessed in what he does.
This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.
Nun. Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light for my pathway. I have given my word and affirmed it, to keep your righteous judgments.
Instruction that comes from you is better for me than thousands of gold and silver coins.
Psalms 19:7-8, 11
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; … Moreover, by them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.
The fear of the LORD is clean, standing forever. The judgments of the LORD are true; they are altogether righteous. They are more desirable than gold, even much fine gold. They are sweeter than honey, even the drippings from a honeycomb.
The brothers immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to Berea, and when they arrived they went into the Jewish synagogue. Now these Jews were more noble than those in Thessalonica; they received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so.
And Paul went in, as was his custom, and on three Sabbath days he reasoned with them from the Scriptures, explaining and proving that it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead, and saying, “This Jesus, whom I proclaim to you, is the Christ.”
You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me, yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life.
