Judgment and Covenant Renewal
4:1 For, behold, the day cometh, that
shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that
do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall
burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave
them neither root nor branch.
4:2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of
righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall
go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.
4:3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be
ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall
do this, saith the LORD of hosts.
4:4 Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I
commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the
statutes and judgments.
4:5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the
coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:
4:6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the
children, and the heart of the children to their fathers,
lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
