¶ FOR behold, the days are coming when my anger shall burn as an oven;
and all the wicked and all who do iniquity shall be stubble;
and the day that comes shall burn them up, says the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.
But for you who revere my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing upon his lips;
and you shall go forth and leap for joy like the calves of the herd.
And you shall tread down the wicked;
for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, says the LORD of hosts.
Remember the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded to him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.
Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD;
And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children and the heart of the children to their fathers before I come and smite the earth to ruin.
