But he knoweth the way that I take; When he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.
Thou waterest its furrows abundantly; Thou settlest the ridges thereof: Thou makest it soft with showers; Thou blessest the springing thereof.
The refining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold; But Jehovah trieth the hearts.
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 hear them: I will say, It is my people; and they shall say, Jehovah is my God.
and he will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and he will purify the sons of Levi, and refine them as gold and silver; and they shall offer unto Jehovah offerings in righteousness.
to them that by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and incorruption, eternal life:
but glory and honor and peace to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek:
Let no man deceive himself. If any man thinketh that he is wise among you in this world, let him become a fool, that he may become wise.
Count it all joy, my brethren, when ye fall into manifold temptations;
Knowing that the proving of your faith worketh patience.
but each man is tempted, when he is drawn away by his own lust, and enticed.
but insomuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings, rejoice; that at the revelation of his glory also ye may rejoice with exceeding joy.
