Daily Bible Verse - 9/27/2007 - Deuteronomy 32:4

NIV He is the Rock, his works are perfect,
and all his ways are just.
A faithful God who does no wrong,
upright and just is he.
KJV He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.
NASB The Rock! His work is perfect,
For all His ways are just;
A God of faithfulness and without injustice,
Righteous and upright is He.
Deuteronomy 32:4
the Rock. This word, representing the stability and permanence of God, was placed at the beginning of the verse for emphasis and was followed by a series of phrases which elaborated the attributes of God as the Rock of Israel. It is one of the principle themes in this song (see vv. 15, 18, 30, 31), stressing the unchanging nature of God in contrast with the fickle nature of the people.

The Lord is titled "God of truth" in several Old Testament passages. As Moses approached his own death, "God of truth" was one of the first titles he gave to the Lord in a teaching song (which Moses then had Israel memorize).

He is the Rock, His work is perfect;
For all His ways are justice,
A God of truth and without injustice;
Righteous and upright is He.
Deuteronomy 32:4

It's clear from this first occurrence of the title in Scripture that titling the Lord as "God of truth" is closely related to His moral character.
