The Day of the Lord Brings Judgment
1 “Certainly the day is coming! It will burn like a furnace. All arrogant people and all evildoers will be ⌊like⌋ straw. The day that is coming will burn them up completely,” says the Lord of Armies. “It won’t leave a single root or branch.
2 “The Sun of Righteousness will rise with healing in his wings for you people who fear my name. You will go out and leap like calves let out of a stall. 3 You will trample on wicked people, because on the day I act they will be ashes under the soles of your feet,” says the Lord of Armies.
Remember What God Has Done and Will Do
4 “Remember the teachings of my servant Moses, the rules and regulations that I gave to him at Horeb for all Israel.
5 “I’m going to send you the prophet Elijah before that very terrifying day of the Lord comes. 6 He will change parents’ attitudes toward their children and children’s attitudes toward their parents. If not, I will come and reclaim my land by destroying you.”
