The Day of the Lord

4 q “For indeed, the day is coming, burning like a furnace, when all the arrogant and everyone who commits wickedness will become stubble. The coming day will consume them,” says the Lord of * Hosts, “not leaving them root or branches. But for you who * fear My name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings, r and you will go out and playfully jump like calves from the stall. s You will trample the wicked, for they will be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day I am preparing,” says the Lord of Hosts.

A Final Warning

“Remember the instruction of Moses My servant, the statutes and ordinances I commanded him at Horeb t for all Israel. Look, I am going to send you Elijah the prophet u before the great and awesome Day of the Lord comes. v 6 w And he will turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers. x Otherwise, I will come and strike the land y with a curse.”
