Duccio di Buoninsegna 066
The Prophet Malachi, painting by Duccio di Buoninsegna, c. 1310 (Museo dell'Opera del Duomo, Siena Cathedral).

Malachi, Malachias, Malache or Mal'achi was the writer of the Book of Malachi which is part of the Bible. This is the last book of the Neviim (prophets) section in the Jewish Tanakh. Malachi is not mentioned by Ezra, however, and he does not directly mention the restoration of the temple. The editors of the 1906 Jewish Encyclopedia think that he prophesied after Haggai and Zechariah (Malachi 1:10; 3:1, 3:10). They believe he made his prophecies about 420 BC, after the second return of Nehemiah from Persia (Book of Nehemiah13:6), or possibly before his return, comparing Malachi 2:8 with Nehemiah 13:15; Malachi 2:10-16 with Nehemiah 13:23).
