The Day of the Lord’s Judging
1“There is a day coming that will burn like a hot furnace, and all the proud and evil people will be like straw. On that day they will be completely burned up so that not a root or branch will be left,” says the Lord All-Powerful. 2“But for you who honor me, goodness will shine on you like the sun, with healing in its rays. You will jump around, like well-fed calves. 3Then you will crush the wicked like ashes under your feet on the day I will do this,” says the Lord All-Powerful.
4“Remember the teaching of Moses my servant, those laws and rules I gave to him on Mount Sinai for all the Israelites.
5“But I will send you Elijah the prophet before that great and terrifying day of the Lord’s judging. 6Elijah will help parents love their children and children love their parents. Otherwise, I will come and put a curse on the land.”
