New International Version
The Faithful Remnant
16 Then those who feared the Lord talked with each other, and the Lord listened and heard.(A) A scroll(B) of remembrance was written in his presence concerning those who feared(C) the Lord and honored his name.
17 “On the day when I act,” says the Lord Almighty, “they will be my(D) treasured possession.(E) I will spare(F) them, just as a father has compassion and spares his son(G) who serves him. 18 And you will again see the distinction between the righteous(H) and the wicked, between those who serve God and those who do not.(I)
