it will burn like a furnace.
All the arrogant and every evildoer
will be stubble,
and the day that is coming
will set them on fire,”
says the LORD Almighty.
Not a root or a branch will be left to them.
But for you who revere my name,
the sun of righteousness
will rise with healing in its rays.
And you will go out
and frolic like well-fed calves.
Then you will trample on the wicked;
they will be ashes under the soles of your feet
on the day when I act, says the LORD Almighty.
Remember the law of my servant Moses,
the decrees and laws I gave him
at Horeb for all Israel.
See, I will send the prophet Elijah to you
before that great and dreadful day of the LORD comes.
He will turn the hearts of the parents to their children,
and the hearts of the children to their parents;
or else I will come and strike the land
with total destruction.
~ Malachi 4
