Malachi : Cruelty & Violence
- God continues to demand animal sacrifices. And not just any animals will do. He is insulted when blind, lame, or sick animals are killed for him.
- God will burn "the wicked" and the "righteous" will walk around on their ashes.
- The Old Testament ends fittingly with these words: "lest I come and smite the earth with
a curse." 4:6
