God's judgment on the wicked,
Malachi 4:1 For marck, the day commeth, that shall burne as an ouen: and al the proude, yea and al such as do wickednesse, shalbe straw: and the daye that is for to come, shall burne them vp (sayeth the Lorde of hostes) so that it shall leaue them neyther rote nor braunche.
and his blessing on the good.
Malachi 4:2 But vnto you that feare my name, shall the Sonne of ryghteousnesse aryse, and healthe shalbe vnder his winges: ye shal go forth, & multipply as the fat calues. Malachi 4:3 Ye shall treade doune the vngodlye: for they shalbe lyke the asshes vnder the soles of your fete, in the day that I shall make, sayeth the Lord of hostes.
He exhorteth to the study of the Law,
Malachi 4:4 Remembre the lawe of Moses my seruaunt whyche I commytted vnto hym in Oreb for al Israel, with the stratutes and ordynaunces.
and telleth of Elijah's coming and office.
Malachi 4:5 Beholde, I wyl sende you Elias the Prophet: before the comming of the daye of the greate and fearfull Lorde. Malachi 4:6 He shall turne the hertes of the fathers to their chyldren, and the hertes of the children to their fathers, that I come not, & smite the earth with cursynge.
