1The souls of the righteous are in the hand of God,a and no torment shall touch them. 2They seemed, in the view of the foolish, to be dead; and their passing away was thought an affliction 3and their going forth from us, utter destruction. But they are in peace.b 4For if to others, indeed, they seem punished, yet is their hope full of immortality; 5Chastised a little, they shall be greatly blessed, because God tried them and found them worthy of himself.c 6As gold in the furnace, he proved them, and as sacrificial offerings* he took them to himself.d 7In the time of their judgment* they shall shine and dart about as sparks through stubble;e 8They shall judge nations and rule over peoples, and the LORD shall be their King forever.f 9Those who trust in him shall understand truth, and the faithful shall abide with him in love: Because grace and mercy are with his holy ones,g and his care is with the elect.
