Malachi 3:15-17 Common English Bible (CEB)
15 So now we consider the arrogant fortunate.
Moreover, those doing evil are built up;
they test God and escape.”
The scroll of remembrance
16 Then those revering the Lord,
each and every one, spoke among themselves.
The Lord paid attention and listened to them.
Then a scroll of remembrance was written before the Lord
about those revering the Lord,
the ones meditating on his name.
17 On the day that I am preparing,
says the Lord of heavenly forces,
they will be my special possession.
I will spare them just as parents spare a child who serves them.
