2 But for you who fear my name, the sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings. You shall go out leaping like calves from the stall.
sun of righteousness is a unique phase to Malachi. The Davidic king will reign
with righteousness, referring to Christ and He will be called the righteous Branch.
The rising sun reveals the truth about the Lord and His people, vindicating
those who are faithful and condemning those who remain rebellious. We see the
reward is great for those who stand firm in the Lord, fearing God and living out
their faith, while those who do not will face the consequences.
