Malachi 4

The Great Day of the  Lord

1
Ch 4:1–6 is ch 3:19–24 in Hebrew
For behold b  the day is coming c  burning like an oven, when d  all the arrogant and e  all evildoers f  will be stubble. The day that is coming g  shall set them ablaze, says the  Lord of hosts, so that it will leave them neither root nor branch.
2But for you h  who fear my name, i  the sun j  of righteousness shall rise k  with healing in its wings. You shall go out l  leaping like calves from the stall. 3And you shall tread down the wicked, for they will be ashes under the soles of your feet, m  on the day when I act, says the  Lord of hosts.

4 n  Remember o  the law of my servant Moses, the statutes and rules
Or  and just decrees
that I commanded him at Horeb for all Israel.

5 q  Behold, I will send you r  Elijah the prophet s  before the great and awesome day of the  Lord comes. 6And he will t  turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers, lest I come and u  strike the land with a decree of utter destruction.”
The Hebrew term rendered  decree of utter destruction refers to things devoted (or set apart) to the Lord (or by the Lord) for destruction
