3 The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold, but the Lord tests the heart.
3 The fining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold: but the Lord trieth the hearts.
3 The crucible is for silver, and the furnace is for gold, and the Lord tests hearts.
3 As silver in a crucible and gold in a pan, so our lives are assayed by God.
3 The refining pot is for silver and the furnace for gold, But the Lord tests the hearts.
3 Fire tests the purity of silver and gold, but the Lord tests the heart.
(Read Proverbs 17:3)
God tries the heart by affliction. He thus has often shown the sin remaining in the heart of the believer.
