Malachi 4
The day of judgment
The LORD said:
1The day of judgment is certain to come. And it will be like a red-hot furnace with flames that burn up proud and sinful people, as though they were straw. Not a branch or a root will be left. I, the LORD All-Powerful, have spoken! 2But for you who honour my name, victory will shine like the sun with healing in its rays, and you will jump around like calves at play. 3When I come to bring justice, you will trample those who are evil, as though they were ashes under your feet. I, the LORD All-Powerful, have spoken!
4Don't ever forget the laws and teachings I gave my servant Moses on Mount Sinai.#4.4 Sinai: Hebrew “Horeb”.
5I, the LORD, promise to send the prophet Elijah before that great and terrible day comes.#Mt 11.14; 17.10-13; Mk 9.11-13; Lk 1.17; Jn 1.21. 6He will lead children and parents to love each other more, so that when I come, I won't bring doom to the land.
