Isaiah 33:14; Malachi 3:1–2; 2 Thessalonians 1:7–8

14  The sinners in Zion are afraid;

trembling has seized the godless:

yWho among us can dwell zwith the consuming fire?

Who among us can dwell with everlasting burnings?


gBehold, I send hmy messenger, and ihe will prepare the way before me. And the Lord jwhom you seek will suddenly come to his temple; and kthe messenger of the covenant in whom you delight, behold, he is coming, says the Lord of hosts. But lwho can endure the day of his coming, and who can stand when he appears? For mhe is like a refiner's fire and like fullers' soap.


and to grant jrelief to you who are afflicted as well as to us, when kthe Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven lwith his mighty angels min flaming fire, inflicting vengeance on those nwho do not know God and on those who odo not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.
