1 Kings 4:29-32 (Good News Translation)

1: The Lord Almighty says, “The day is coming when all proud and evil people will burn like straw. On that day they will burn up, and there will be nothing left of them.

2: But for you who obey me, my saving power will rise on you like the sun and bring healing like the sun's rays. You will be as free and happy as calves let out of a stall.

3: On the day when I act, you will overcome the wicked, and they will be like dust under your feet.
