Psalm 12:6


6 The words ['imrah] of the LORD [Yahovah] are pure [tahowr] words: ['imrah] as silver [keceph] tried [tsaraph] in a furnace [`aliyl] of earth, ['erets] purified [zaqaq] seven times. [shib`athayim] KJV-Interlinear


6 The words of the Lord are pure words; As silver tried in a furnace on the earth, refined seven times. NASB


In contrast to the words of the previous verses or the words of the wicked or the words of the naïve, are the words of God.

The words of the wicked, of the carnal, are unreliable, vanity, empty, unfounded, false, flattery, lies.

The words of God are pure, meaning untainted, having no mixture, containing no falsehoods, no boasting, completely reliable, truthful, unbounded by time, timeless, immutable.

The words of the world cannot bear up under the most simple and objective scrutiny.

The words of God, are able to hold up under the most extreme examinations.

The number seven typically infers a complete process, where all that can be done has been done and anything further will not produce any better results.

The blast furnace is the extreme method of purging out all of the impurities of an ore, like silver or gold. To expose silver, for example, to the purification process even once, rids it of nearly all impurities. To process the ore a second and third time, removes all impurities leaving nothing left to be removed. To process it a fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh time, is tremendous redundancy and gains nothing but insurance beyond the slightest doubt that the ore is absolutely pure.

The number seven refers to a completed task, leaving nothing further to do. The number seven when combined with the furnace of earth, is an expression that the world, tries and tries, over and over, to discredit Gods word, and even under the most extreme tests, under the most extreme pressures, under the most extreme attempts imaginable, the world, cosmos, Satan, man, and so forth, cannot break, crack, change, discredit, modify, or better, that which comes from God.

Thus, we have two opinions in this universe. That of the world, and that of God.

Gods opinion is presented in the scriptures.

The worlds opinions are presented in all manner of religions, philosophy, beliefs, ideas, and so forth. Even the plurality of the worlds opinions do not help its cause. More ideas do not make a thing better. Especially when the ideas or opinions are all based on the same foundation, namely anything lacking truth.

The worlds opinions fail at every examination.

Gods word, stands up under the most extensive of examinations.
