Bible: Mal 3:2-5

3:2 Who can endure the day of his coming? Who can keep standing when he appears? For he will be like a refiner’s fire, 1  like a launderer’s soap. 3:3 He will act like a refiner and purifier of silver and will cleanse the Levites and refine them like gold and silver. Then they will offer the Lord a proper offering. 3:4 The offerings 2  of Judah and Jerusalem 3  will be pleasing to the Lord as in former times and years past.

3:5I 4  will come to you in judgment. I will be quick to testify against those who practice divination, those who commit adultery, those who break promises, 5  and those who exploit workers, widows, and orphans, 6  who refuse to help 7  the immigrant 8  and in this way show they do not fear me,” says the Lord who rules over all.
