1
¶ 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.
2
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.
3
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.
4
Remember the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded to him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.
5
Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD;
6
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.
