To sum up all that I have read by the scriptures that you have referenced; the Word of God is right, true, pure and has been proven and will never fail. Everything that He has said would happen, has happened. His word must be obeyed and taken heed to, in the earth, as it is obeyed by the angels in heaven. His word is spoken in truth and in righteousness. It is the sword of the Spirit; it is alive, powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword. It is an incorruptible seed that will never die, it lives and abides forever! This reminds me of Philippians 4:8: "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. "
All the verses you listed are wonderful..God's Word, The Holy Bible, is all of that and more. The Hebrew word for word is dabar. It is derived from the verb "to speak," and it stands for the word or thing spoken. Often it means the idea or the content of what is said. An example is 2 Samuel 11:19, which means - matter. In Exodus 16:16, is a thing. Deuteronomy 24:5, is business. The phrase "word of the Lord" was used by prophets at the beginning of a message. In biblical literature "word" can be a term for prophecy. The word of revelation is associated with prophets...the same way, wisdom is associated with wise men. Law is associated with the priests. Jeremiah used dabar, more than any other prophet to declare that he had been given authority by God to deliver a message. Genesis 1:26, "Then God said,'Let Us make man in Our image..." notice Us. The plural allows for more than one. It allows the progression of the Bible to declare the Holy Trinity. I think of THE Word, in the Bible as, " But the Word of our God stands forever." Isaiah 40:8 The Word, is - John 1:1-17..And He shall reign forever and ever AMEN! Colossians1:15-20.
