[a] “For look! The day is about to come, burning like an oven, and all the arrogant and every evildoer[b] will be stubble. The coming day will consume[c] them,” says Yahweh of hosts. “It will not leave behind for them root or branch. But for you who revere[d] my name, the sun of righteousness will rise, with healing in its wings, and you will go out and leap like fattened calves.[e] You will trample down the wicked, for they will be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day that I am going to act,” says Yahweh of hosts.

“Remember the instruction[f] of my servant Moses, which I commanded him at Horeb to all Israel, the rules and regulations. Look! I am going to send to you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and awesome day of Yahweh! And he will bring back[g] the hearts of the fathers to the sons, and the hearts of the sons to their fathers, so that I will not come and strike the land with a ban.”
