Preservação das Escrituras
I know that whatsoever God doth, that will be for ever; to it nothing can be added, and from it there is nothing to be diminished: and God hath so made it, that men should be afraid of him.
In my heart have I treasured up thy saying, in order that I may not sin against thee.
1 To the chief musician, a psalm of David. The heavens relate the glory of God; and the expanse telleth of the works of his hands.
2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night showeth knowledge.
3 There is no speech, there are no words, their voice is not heard.
4 But their melody extendeth through all the earth, and to the end of the world their words. For the sun hath he set a tabernacle among them;
5 And he goeth out as a bridegroom from his chamber, he is glad like a strong man to run his course;
6 From the end of the heavens is his going forth, and his circuit is unto their ends: and there is nothing hidden from his heat.
7 The law of the Lord is perfect, quieting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
8 The precepts of the Lord are upright, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is clear, enlightening the eyes.
The words of the Lord are pure words, as silver refined in the crucible of earth, purified seven times.
Thou, O Lord, wilt preserve them; thou wilt guard them from this generation for ever.
6 And these words which I command thee this day, shall be in thy heart:
7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and thou shalt speak of them when thou sittest in thy house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
8 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thy hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thy eyes.
9 And thou shalt write them upon the doorposts of thy house, and upon thy gates.
The grass withereth, the flower fadeth; but the word of our God will stand firm for ever.
