5 Get wisdom, get understanding. Do not forget it; neither turn away from the words of my mouth. [Wisdom does not come from reading scriptures; wisdom comes from the Teacher, (Spirit of God), teaching you from the words of his mouth — Christ speaks to those who wait on Him in humble silence as they listen, watch, hear, and obey.]
7 Hear me now therefore, O you children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.
24 Listen to me now therefore, O you children, and attend to the words of my mouth. [When He says listen, He is not just telling you to pay attention to the words you are reading; He is telling you to listen for His voice to speak words from His mouth, which words come from within your heart to be obeyed, Rom 10:8. To attend is to listen and regard with compliance. Christ speaks to those who wait on Him in humble silence as they listen, watch, hear, and obey. Surely he loves the people; all your holy ones are in your power; and they sit at your feet, each receiving your words. Deu 33:3]
4 But he answered and said, "It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.'" [To have life in God, all men must hear God speak to them and live by his words, which are spirit and impart life. John 6:63.]
6 For the LORD gives wisdom; and from his mouth, knowledge and understanding. [The word is in your heart and mouth to be obeyed, which is the word of faith the Apostles preached. Rom 10:8.]
6 Hear for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips shall be to right things.
8 All the words of my mouth are with righteousness; there is nothing against truth or perverse in them.
23 I have sworn by myself, the word has gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, 'That to me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.'
20 Yet hear the word of the LORD, O you women, and let your ear receive the word of his mouth, and teach your daughters wailing, and everyone her neighbor lamentation.
11 So shall my word be that goes forth out of my mouth. It shall not return to me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
17 "Son of man, I have made you a watchman to the house of Israel; therefore hear the word from my mouth and give them warning from me.
7 So you, O son of man, I have made a watchman to the house of Israel; therefore you shall hear the word from my mouth and warn them from me.
|Psalms 78:1,89:34,17:4 |
1 Give ear, O my people, to my teaching; incline your ears to the words of my mouth. [Jesus said, "He who is of God, hears God's words," John 8:47; "Take heed what you hear; with what measure you use, it will be measured to you; and to you who hear, more will be given." Mark 4:24-25.]
34 My covenant I will not break, nor alter the words that have gone out of my lips.
4 Concerning the works of men, by the word of your lips I have kept myself from the paths of the destroyer.
