CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Every word of God is pure - כל אמרת אלוה צרופה col imrath eloah tseruphah, "Every oracle of God is purified." A metaphor taken from the purifying of metals. Every thing that God has pronounced, every inspiration which the prophets have received, is pure, without mixture of error, without dross. Whatever trials it may be exposed to, it is always like gold: it bears the fire, and comes out with the same lustre, the same purity, and the same weight.
He is a shield unto them - And this oracle among the rest.

Where the preposition and adjective are not only added, but the noun is written more full, and more emphatic: but a translation cannot well express it without paraphrase.

2 Samuel 22:31
"As for God, his way is perfect: The LORD's word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him.
But you, LORD, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high.
And the words of the LORD are flawless, like silver purified in a crucible, like gold refined seven times.
The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
As for God, his way is perfect: The LORD's word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him.
For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.
He holds success in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless,
