"Surely the day is coming;1 it will burn like a furnace.2 All the arrogant3 and every evildoer will be stubble,4 and the day that is coming will set them on fire,5" says the LORD Almighty. "Not a root or a branch6 will be left to them.
But for you who revere my name,7 the sun of righteousness8 will rise with healing9 in its rays. And you will go out and frolic10 like well-fed calves.
Then you will trample11 on the wicked; they will be ashes12 under the soles of your feet on the day when I act," says the LORD Almighty.
"Remember the law13 of my servant Moses, the decrees and laws I gave him at Horeb14 for all Israel.155
"See, I will send the prophet Elijah16 to you before that great and dreadful day of the LORD comes.176
He will turn the hearts of the parents to their children,18 and the hearts of the children to their parents; or else I will come and strike19 the land with total destruction."20
