The apostle Paul makes it clear that the Scriptures are given to us by God. In fact, Paul explains that they are literally “God breathed.” While written by over 40 human authors, it was the Holy Spirit who inspired each of them. The result is a cohesive message which is without error in its original manuscripts. Because of this we can rely on Scripture as our guide for life. Paul explains in the focal verses that Scripture has many practical uses. It teaches us, it convicts us of sin and error, and it puts us on the correct path. The Bible trains us in righteousness, which means it leads us in how to live with God and man. If we truly seek its wisdom, the Scriptures will give us all we need to serve God and live a life that pleases Him.
