_ _ ashes — after having been burnt with the fire of judgment (Malachi 4:1).

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Malachi 4:3

Tread down the wicked — When believers by faith overcome the world, when they suppress their corrupt appetites and passions, and when the God of peace bruises Satan under their feet, then they indeed tread down the wicked.
