And the Lord listened and heard them;
So fa book of remembrance was written before Him
For those who fear the Lord
And who 5meditate on His name.
17 “They gshall be Mine,” says the Lord of hosts,
And iI will spare them
As a man spares his own son who serves him.”
18 jThen you shall again discern
Between the righteous and the wicked,
Between one who serves God
And one who does not serve Him.
