The Book of Remembrance

16 Then those who [a]feared the Lord spoke to one another, and the Lord (A)gave attention and heard it, and a (B)book of remembrance was written before Him for those who [b]fear the Lord and who esteem His name. 17 “They will be (C)Mine,” says the Lord of hosts, “on the (D)day that I [c]prepare My [d](E)own possession, and I will [e]spare them as a man [f](F)spares his own son who serves him.” 18 So you will again (G)distinguish between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him.
