Malachi

An Old Testament prophet who wrote and prophesied at approximately 430 B.C.

The book of Malachi

The book or prophecy of Malachi is the last book in the Old Testament. It seems to follow four major themes: (1) the sins of Israel—Malachi 1:6–2:17; 3:8–9; (2) the judgments to come upon Israel because of their disobedience—Malachi 1:14; 2:2–3, 12; 3:5; (3) the promises for obedience—Malachi 3:10–12, 16–18; 4:2–3; and (4) prophecies pertaining to Israel—Malachi 3:1–5; 4:1, 5–6 (D&C 2; 128:17; JS—H 1:37–39).

In his prophecy, Malachi wrote of John the Baptist (Mal. 3:1; Matt. 11:10), the law of tithing (Mal. 3:7–12), the second coming of the Lord (Mal. 4:5), and the return of Elijah (Mal. 4:5–6; D&C 2; 128:17; JS—H 1:37–39). The Savior quoted all of Malachi chapters 3 and 4 to the Nephites (3 Ne. 24–25).
