The words of the LORD are pure words Psalms 12:6-7

The words of the LORD are pure words, Like silver tried in a furnace of earth, Purified seven times.You shall keep them, O LORD, You shall preserve them from this generation forever.

An interesting term “pure words.” Maybe I need to start by considering what “impure words” would be? Certainly untrustworthy, unreliable, loosely defined, not purified seven times. The words of the world are couched in misdirection and lies. Carefully constructed phrases intended to befog and build unrealizable expectations.

But the Words of the LORD? There's something that I can take to the market. They will fly. “I am the LORD, your God.” means precisely that the LORD, God the Almighty is my God. I can trust His Word. John 1:1-4 means precisely: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.
