Preservação das Escrituras
I know that whatever God does, it shall be forever. Nothing can be added to it, nor anything taken from it; and God has done it, that men should fear before him.
I have hidden your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.
and to know Christ’s love which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior,
who desires all people to be saved and come to full knowledge of the truth.
knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of private interpretation.
For no prophecy ever came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke, being moved by the Holy Spirit.
For most certainly, I tell you, until heaven and earth pass away, not even one smallest letter or one tiny pen stroke shall in any way pass away from the law, until all things are accomplished.
1 God, having in the past spoken to the fathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways,
2 has at the end of these days spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, through whom also he made the worlds.
3 His Son is the radiance of his glory, the very image of his substance, and upholding all things by the word of his power, who, when he had by himself purified us of our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high,
1 The heavens declare the glory of God. The expanse shows his handiwork.
2 Day after day they pour out speech, and night after night they display knowledge.
3 There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard.
4 Their voice has gone out through all the earth, their words to the end of the world. In them he has set a tent for the sun,
5 which is as a bridegroom coming out of his room, like a strong man rejoicing to run his course.
6 His going out is from the end of the heavens, his circuit to its ends. There is nothing hidden from its heat.
7 Yahweh’s law is perfect, restoring the soul. Yahweh’s covenant is sure, making wise the simple.
8 Yahweh’s precepts are right, rejoicing the heart. Yahweh’s commandment is pure, enlightening the eyes.
But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart;” that is, the word of faith which we preach:
For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that through perseverance and through encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.
23 having been born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, through the word of God, which lives and remains forever.
24 For, “All flesh is like grass, and all of man’s glory like the flower in the grass. The grass withers, and its flower falls;
25 but the Lord’s word endures forever.” This is the word of Good News which was preached to you.
Yahweh’s words are flawless words, as silver refined in a clay furnace, purified seven times.
You will keep them, Yahweh. You will preserve them from this generation forever.
The Word became flesh and lived among us. We saw his glory, such glory as of the only born Son of the Father, full of grace and truth.
For, “All flesh is like grass, and all of man’s glory like the flower in the grass. The grass withers, and its flower falls;
but the Lord’s word endures forever.” This is the word of Good News which was preached to you.
6 These words, which I command you today, shall be on your heart;
7 and you shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise up.
8 You shall bind them for a sign on your hand, and they shall be for frontlets between your eyes.
9 You shall write them on the door posts of your house and on your gates.
The grass withers, the flower fades; but the word of our God stands forever.”
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.
So faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
But I say, didn’t they hear? Yes, most certainly, “Their sound went out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.”
