- 我要使這三分之一經火、熬煉他們、如熬煉銀子、試煉他們、如試煉金子．他們必求告我的名、我必應允他們．我要說、這是我的子民．他們也要說、耶和華是我們的 神。
- If someone asks him, 'What are these wounds on your body ?' he will answer, 'The wounds I was given at the house of my friends.'
- "Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, against the man who is close to me!" declares the LORD Almighty. "Strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered, and I will turn my hand against the little ones.
- In the whole land," declares the LORD, "two-thirds will be struck down and perish; yet one-third will be left in it.
- This third I will bring into the fire; I will refine them like silver and test them like gold. They will call on my name and I will answer them; I will say, 'They are my people,' and they will say, 'The LORD is our God.' "
