The fining-pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold; but Jehovah trieth the hearts.
Prove me, Jehovah, and test me; try my reins and my heart:
The fining-pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold; so let a man be to the mouth that praiseth him.
I Jehovah search the heart, I try the reins, even to give each one according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings.
And I know, my God, that thou triest the heart, and hast pleasure in uprightness. In the uprightness of my heart have I willingly offered all these things; and now have I seen with joy thy people, which are present here, offer willingly to thee.
that the proving of your faith, much more precious than of gold which perishes, though it be proved by fire, be found to praise and glory and honour in the revelation of Jesus Christ:
For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou hast tried us, as silver is tried.
Behold, I have refined thee, but not as silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.
And I will bring the third part into the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried. They shall call on my name, and I will answer them: I will say, It is my people; and they shall say, Jehovah is my God.
But who shall endure the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? For he will be like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' lye.
and her children will I kill with death; and all the assemblies shall know that I am he that searches the reins and the hearts; and I will give to you each according to your works.
