    the words of Scripture means?

    I don’t know what party these men and women belong to. I don’t know if they’ll vote for me. But I know that their spirit defines us. They remind me, in the words of Scripture, that ours is a “future filled with hope.”

    It's from Obama's Acceptance Speech.

    What does the words of Scripture mean? the words of the Declaration of Independence?

    Have you tried looking up the word in a dictionary?

    Of course, 'scripture' doesn't always mean the Bible, but in this case it does.

    With a capital "S" it's a big hint that it means the Bible.
