God's judgment on the wicked,
Malachi 4:1 For marck, the daye commeth that shal bnrne as an ouen: and all the proude, yee, and all soch as do wyckednesse, shalbe strawe, & the daye that is for to come, shall burne them vp (saieth the Lord of hostes) so that it shal leaue them nether rote ner braunche.
and his blessing on the good.
Malachi 4:2 But vnto you that feare my name, shall that Sonne of ryghteousnesse aryse, and health shalbe vnder his wynges: ye shal go forth, and multiplie as the fat calues, Malachi 4:3 ye shal treade downe the vngodly: for they shalbe lyke the asshes vnder the soles of youre fete in the daye that I shall make, sayeth the Lorde of hoostes.
He exhorteth to the study of the Law,
Malachi 4:4 Remembre the lawe of Moses my seruaunt, whych I commytted vnto hym in Oreb for all Israell, with the statutes and ordinaunces.
and telleth of Elijah's coming and office.
Malachi 4:5 Beholde, I wyll sende you Elias the prophet: before the commynge of the daye of the greate and fearefull Lorde. Malachi 4:6 He shal turne the hertes of the fathers to theyr children, and the hertes of the chyldren to their fathers, that I come not and smyte the earth with cursynge.
