The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul:
the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart:
the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
We should reverence God’s word
Princes have persecuted me without a cause: but my heart standeth in awe of thy word.
God has exalted his word very high
I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.

We are warned not to tamper with God’s word
Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.
Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you.
God’s word is preserved forever
The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.
Isaiah 40: 8
We are born again by God’s word
Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: But the word of the LORD endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.
I Peter 1:23-25
God’s word is to be desired
More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
