amos 9:9 "For behold, I am commanding, And I will shake the house of Israel among all nations As [grain] is shaken in a sieve, But not a kernel will fall to the ground.

< Amos 9:8
Amos 9:10 >

      9. sift--I will cause the Israelites to be tossed about through all nations as corn is shaken about in a sieve, in such a way, however, that while the chaff and dust (the wicked) fall through (perish), all the solid grains (the godly elect) remain (are preserved), (Ro 11:26; compare Note, see on Jer 3:14). So spiritual Israel's final safety is ensured (Lu 22:32; Joh 10:28; 6:39).
