9 “And I will bring the third part through the fire, Refine them as silver is refined, And test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, And I will answer them; I will say, ‘They are My people,’ And they will say, ‘The Lord is my God.’”
10 The axe is already laid at the root of the trees; therefore every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
11 “As for me, I baptize you [a]with water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, and I am not fit to remove His sandals; He will baptize you [b]with the Holy Spirit and fire.12 His winnowing fork is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clear His threshing floor; and He will gather His wheat into the barn, but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.”
1 Corinthians 3:13-15New American Standard Bible (NASB)
13 each man’s work will become evident; for the day will show it because it is to be revealed with fire, and the fire itself will test [a]the quality of each man’s work.14 If any man’s work which he has built on it remains, he will receive a reward.15 If any man’s work is burned up, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.
