2 Tim 3:16-17 (NIV) 16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Psalms 1:1-3 (NIV) 1 Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers.
2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. 3 He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.

Proverbs 1:7 (NIV) 7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.

Psalms 119:11 (NIV) 11 I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.

Abraham Lincoln : “I believe the bible is the best gift God has ever given to man. All the good from the Savior of the world is communicated to us through this book.”

George Washington : “It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible.”

Daniel Webster : “If there is anything in my thoughts or style to commend, the credit is due to my parents for instilling in me an early love of the scriptures. If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will go on prospering and to prosper; but if we and our posterity neglect its instructions and authority, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us and bury all our glory in profound obscurity.”

John Quincy Adams : “So great is my veneration for the Bible that the earlier my children begin to read it the more confident will be my hope that they will prove useful citizens of their country and respectable members of society. I have for many years made it a practice to read through the Bible once every years.

Andrew Jackson : “That Book, sir, is the rock on which our republic rests.”

Sir Isaac Newton : “There are more sure marks of authenticity in the Bible than in any profane history.”

James Jennings : “If a man’s Bible is coming apart, it is an indication that he himself is fairly well put together.”
