The Book of Remembrance

16 Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another, and the LORD 1gave attention and heard it, and a 2book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the LORD and who esteem His name.
17 "They will be 3Mine," says the LORD of hosts, "on the 4day that I prepare My 5own possession, and I will spare them as a man 6spares his own son who serves him."
18 So you will again 7distinguish between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him.
