By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac, and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,
And it came to pass after these things that God proved Abraham and said unto him, Abraham; and he said, Behold, here I am.
and said, By myself I have sworn, said the LORD, for because thou hast done this thing and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son;
And thou shalt remember all the way by which the LORD thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness to afflict thee and to prove thee to know what was in thine heart, whether thou would keep his commandments, or not.
However, because of the ambassadors of the princes of Babylon, who sent unto him to enquire of the wonder that had happened in the land, God left him, to try him, that he might know all that was in his heart.
But put forth thy hand now and touch all that he has, and thou shalt see if he will not blaspheme thee to thy face.
And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my slave Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that fears God and has departed from evil and that he still retains his perfection, although thou didst incite me against him to destroy him without cause.
The fining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold, but the LORD tries the hearts.
And some of the wise shall fall to be purged and cleaned and made white, even to the time of the end because even for this there is time appointed.
And I will put the third part into the fire and will refine them as silver is refined and will try them as gold is tried; He shall call on my name, and I will hear him; I will say, My people, and he shall say, The LORD is my God.
But who may abide the time of his coming? and who shall stand when he appears? for he shall be like a refiner's fire and like fullers' soap:

My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into diverse trials,
Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered his son Isaac upon the altar?
Behold, we count blessed those who endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job and have seen the end of the Lord, that the Lord is very merciful, and full of compassion.
In which ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are afflicted in diverse temptations,
Beloved, think it not strange when you are tried by fire (which is done to prove you) as though some strange thing happened unto you,
Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the entire world, to try those that dwell upon the earth.
