THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Ecclesiastes (Author Solomon)

7:2It is better to go to the house of mourning, than to go to the house of feasting: for that is the end of all men; and the living will lay it to his heart.

7:3Sorrow is better than laughter: for by the sadness of the countenance the heart is made better.

Isaiah (Author Isaiah)

1:25And I will turn my hand upon thee, and purely purge away thy dross, and take away all thy tin:

1:26And I will restore thy judges as at the first, and thy counsellors as at the beginning: afterward thou shalt be called, The city of righteousness, the faithful city.

48:10Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.

Jeremiah (Author Jeremiah)

9:6Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know me, saith the LORD.

9:7Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, I will melt them, and try them; for how shall I do for the daughter of my people?

Zechariah (Author Zechariah)

13:9And I will bring the third part through 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, The LORD is my God.

Malachi (Author Malachi)

3:2But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap:

3:3And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.
