4
The Great Day of the Lord
1 # 4:1 Ch 4:1–6 is ch 3:19–24 in Hebrew “For behold, #[ver. 5; ch. 3:2] the day is coming, #[2 Thess. 1:7, 8] burning like an oven, when #ch. 3:15 all the arrogant and #ch. 3:15 all evildoers #Isa. 47:14; [Matt. 3:12; Luke 3:17]will be stubble. The day that is coming #Isa. 47:14; [Matt. 3:12; Luke 3:17]shall set them ablaze, says the Lord of hosts, so that it will leave them neither root nor branch. 2But for you #ch. 3:16 who fear my name, #Ps. 84:11; Luke 1:78; John 1:4; 8:12; 9:5; 12:46 the sun #[Jer. 23:6] of righteousness shall rise #Isa. 53:5 with healing in its wings. You shall go out #[Jer. 50:11]leaping like calves from the stall. 3And you shall tread down the wicked, for they will be ashes under the soles of your feet, #See ch. 3:17on the day when I act, says the Lord of hosts.
4 # [Deut. 4:9, 10] “Remember #See Ex. 20:3-17; Deut. 4:10the law of my servant Moses, the statutes and rules#4:4 Or and just decrees that I commanded him at Horeb for all Israel.
5 # [ch. 3:1] “Behold, I will send you #[Matt. 11:14; Mark 9:11; Luke 1:17] Elijah the prophet #Joel 2:31before the great and awesome day of the Lord comes. 6And he will #[Luke 1:17] turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers, lest I come and #Isa. 11:4; [Zech. 5:3]strike the land with a decree of utter destruction.”#4:6 The Hebrew term rendered decree of utter destruction refers to things devoted (or set apart) to the Lord (or by the Lord) for destruction
