Malachi 4

The Day of the LORD
(Zephaniah 1:7–18; 1 Thessalonians 5:1–11; 2 Peter 3:8–13)

1 “For behold, the day is coming, burning like a furnace, when all the arrogant and every evildoer will be stubble; the day is coming when I will set them ablaze,” says the LORD of Hosts. “Not a root or branch will be left to them.”

2 “But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings, a and you will go out and leap like calves from the stall. 3 Then you will trample the wicked, for they will be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day I am preparing,” says the LORD of Hosts.

4 “Remember the law of My servant Moses, the statutes and ordinances I commanded him for all Israel at Horeb. b 

5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and awesome c Day of the LORD. 6 And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers. d Otherwise, I will come and strike the land with a curse.”
