Malachi 4 Revised Standard Version

The Coming Day of the LORD

4 1  "For behold, the day comes, burning like an oven, when all the arrogant and all evildoers will be stubble; the day that comes shall burn them up, says the Lord of hosts, so that it will leave them neither root nor branch. 2  But for you who fear my name the sun of righteousness shall rise, with healing in its wings. You shall go forth leaping like calves from the stall. 3  And you shall tread down the wicked, for they will be ashes under the soles of your feet, on the day when I act, says the Lord of hosts.

4  "Remember the law of my servant Moses, the statutes and ordinances that I commanded him at Horeb for all Israel. 5  "Behold, I will send you Eli'jah the prophet before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes. 6  And he will turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the land with a curse."
