Psalm 17:3; Psalm 26:2; Psalm 66:10; Psalm 139:23; Zechariah 13:9; Malachi 3:3; 1 Peter 1:7; Revelation 3:18; James 1:12

You have itried my heart, you have jvisited me by knight,

you have ltested me, and you will find nothing;

I have purposed that my mouth will not transgress.


tProve me, O Lord, and try me;

test my heart and umy mind.1


10  For you, O God, have ltested us;

you have tried us as silver is tried.


23  Search me, O God, and know my heart!

vTry me and know my thoughts!1


And tI will put this third into the fire,

and refine them as one refines silver,

and test them as gold is tested.

uThey will call upon my name,

and vI will answer them.

wI will say, They are my people;

and they will say, The Lord is my God.


He will sit nas a refiner and purifier of silver, and he will purify the sons of Levi and refine them like gold and silver, and they will bring oofferings in righteousness to the Lord.1


so that qthe tested genuineness of your faithmore precious than gold that perishes rthough it is tested by sfiremay be found to result in tpraise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.


18 I counsel you vto buy from me gold refined by fire, so that you may be rich, and wwhite garments so that you may clothe yourself and xthe shame of your nakedness may not be seen, and salve to anoint your eyes, uso that you may see.


12 uBlessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive vthe crown of life, wwhich God has promised to those who love him.
