Off the top of my head the two verses that come to mind is 2 Tim 3:16(NIV)

"All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness"

So it's clear that scripture is what God said and God cannot lie.

Hebrews 6:18 says

"That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, ..."

    Off topic for the question asked but related to my answer, I'd like to say that (apart from the fact it is out of God's character to do wrong) one of the reasons God cannot lie is because his very words are creative. He spoke reality into existence and whatever he says becomes truth.
