The Bible says perfect in this verse.

The context of the verse gives a definition other than "without error".

The Bible therefore allows "perfect" to mean "without error" and also "complete".
The context of the word indicates which biblical definition us appropriate.

I am using BIBLICALLY INDICATED DEFINITIONS.
Both are possible definitions for the Bible uses the word "perfect" in both these ways - whether you like it or not.

I will not play your game about KJV. Find a patsy somewhere else.

you forgot the context.  The Bible or the perfection of it, is no where in the context of this Psalm.

 

Ps 138:6 ΒΆ Though the LORD be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off.
 7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me.
 8 The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands
.

 

It is about David trusting in God concerning his enemies who have lifted up themselves against him

the Me in vs 8 is historically David, it can also be applied to Jesus Christ.  but the Me is not the written word of God.

I was pointing out that in this case the word "perfect" is used in the context of completion, not in the context of "without error".

 

The verse itself is not relevant to the point - the use of the word gives a possible biblical definition of the word perfect as "complete".

I have no problem with opposing points of view.
I have a problem with people posting false information that they know for certain will be offensive to many on this site.

He does this.
Not opposing views - false and deliberately offensive.

And I am not the only one who thinks so.

You seem to be happy to allow him to be deliberately offensive but baulk at the mere suggestion that someone might have an opposing view on decently dressed women.

When people post something they KNOW WILL BE OFFENSIVE they should be pulled up.
Regardless of the subject matter, if they post something THEY KNOW WILL BE OFFENSIVE they should be dealt with.

He does precisely that.
