Proverbs 30:5-6

“Every word of God proves true;

 he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.

Do not add to his words,

 lest he rebuke you and you be found a liar.”

Proverbs 30:5-6 ESV

Here is an important warning about how to handle God’s word. In other words, “Believe it and don’t mess with it.”

A few more similar warnings:

“You shall not add to the word that I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God that I command you.” Deuteronomy 4:2 ESV

“Everything that I command you, you shall be careful to do. You shall not add to it or take from it.” Deuteronomy 12:32 ESV

“I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book, and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.” Revelation 22:18-19 ESV
