Malachi 4

The Great Day of the Lord

1 "For behold, a the day is coming,
Burning like an oven,
And all b the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be c stubble.
And the day which is coming shall burn them up,"
Says the LORD of hosts,
"That will d leave them neither root nor branch.
2 But to you who e fear My name
The f Sun of Righteousness shall arise
With healing in His wings;
And you shall go out
And grow fat like stall-fed calves.
3 g You shall trample the wicked,
For they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet
On the day that I do this,"
Says the LORD of hosts.

4 "Remember the h Law of Moses, My servant,
Which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel,
With i the statutes and judgments.

5 Behold, I will send you j Elijah the prophet
k Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD.
6 And l he will turn
The hearts of the fathers to the children,
And the hearts of the children to their fathers,
Lest I come and m strike the earth with a curse."
