The translation is quoted from the article in BAR. Cross cites the verse as Malachi 4:2, which is based on the Septuagint. In the Masoretic Text the verse is 3:20. Cross, in his note 8, acknowledges Lawrence Stager for bringing to his attention the verse and its meaning. However, the meaning of this verse is not at all clear. Witness the plethora of explanations to the phrase in Andrew E. Hill, Malachi, Anchor Bible Series, 25D (New York: Doubleday, 1998), pp. 349–350. See also Mordecai Zer-Kavod, Minor Prophets (Jerusalem: Mossad Harav Kook, 1970), Malachi 3:20, n. 58. [Hebrew].
