'Sayings' in the Bible
And yet it is my comfort, (And I exult in pain -- He doth not spare,) That I have not hidden The sayings of the Holy One.
How powerful have been upright sayings, And what doth reproof from you reprove?
For reproof -- do you reckon words? And for wind -- sayings of the desperate.
Till when dost thou speak these things? And a strong wind -- sayings of thy mouth?
Your memorable sayings are proverbs of ash; your defenses are made of clay.
Will he make arguments with words in which is no profit, and with sayings which have no value?
Receive instruction from His mouth, and place His sayings in your heart.
The command of His lips, and I depart not. Above my allotted portion I have laid up The sayings of His mouth.
Lo, I have waited for your words, I give ear unto your reasons, Till ye search out sayings.
And unto you I attend, And lo, there is no reasoner for Job, Or answerer of his sayings among you.
And he hath not set in array words for me, And with your sayings I do not answer him.
Of the uprightness of my heart are my sayings, And knowledge have my lips clearly spoken.
