Sword - the word of God

I did a keyword search for "sword" in the Bible and found it to be rather interesting. Most of the references are to battle, but there are some curious references:

He made my mouth like a sharpened sword... Isaiah 49:2
...Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword... Revelation 1:16, 19:15 (also 2:12, 2:16, 19:21)

Take...the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Ephesians 6:17
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword... Hebrews 4:12

"Do not think that I [Jesus] came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword." Matthew 10:34
