The Lord your God is testing you to know whether you love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. § He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver; He will purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer to the Lord an offering in righteousness. § Each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is.
I will turn My hand against you, and thoroughly purge away your dross, and take away all your alloy. § I will refine them and try them.
You, O God, have tested us; You have refined us as silver is refined … We went through fire and through water; but You brought us out to rich fulfillment.
When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you.
