1 Peter 1:7

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 7 So that the trial of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tried with fire, might result in praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ. [Your faith is tested: is it strong enough to last through suffering, or do you become offended and cease seeking God as your first priority? Tried with fire is to be hit by the fiery darts of the wicked one, Eph 6:16. From the Word of the Lord within —"Tribulation: trial by fire."]
