Faith, belief, knowledge
The psalmist's words, "by the word of thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer[.]" (Psalms 17: 4) refers to all the words of God. Not just those in scripture alone, but also those that came from "thy lips" O Lord. The Lord visited with the psalmist as he recorded: "thou hast visited me in the night." (Psalms 17: 3.)
This idea of God's visitation with those who follow Him is as ancient as creation itself. Belief was always intended to grow into faith. Faith was always intended to grow into knowledge.
