And these are the words which He did tell unto them, saying: "Thus said the Father unto Malachi: 'Behold, I will send My messenger, And he shall prepare the way before Me, And the Lord, whom ye seek shall suddenly come to His temple, Even the Messenger of the covenant whom ye delight in- Behold, He shall come,' saith the Lord of Hosts.
