The Book of Remembrance
Then those d who feared the LORD e spoke to one another,
And the LORD listened and heard them;
So f a book of remembrance was written before Him
For those who fear the LORD
And who meditate on His name.
"They g shall be Mine," says the LORD of hosts,
"On the day that I make them My h jewels.
And i I will spare them
As a man spares his own son who serves him."
j Then you shall again discern
Between the righteous and the wicked,
Between one who serves God
And one who does not serve Him.

Come and hear, all you who fear God, And I will declare what He has done for my soul.
But exhort one another daily, while it is called "Today," lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.
You number my wanderings; Put my tears into Your bottle; Are they not in Your book?
Now therefore, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be a special treasure to Me above all people; for all the earth is Mine.
For you are a holy people to the LORD your God; the LORD your God has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples on the face of the earth.
This people I have formed for Myself; They shall declare My praise.
1 Peter 2:9
But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.
You shall also be a crown of glory In the hand of the LORD, And a royal diadem In the hand of your God.
As a father pities his children, So the LORD pities those who fear Him.
So that men will say, "Surely there is a reward for the righteous; Surely He is God who judges in the earth.
