<---- Malachi 1 Â Â Malachi 3 ----> And now, O ye priests, this commandment is for you. 2Â If ye will not hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto my name, saith theÂ LordÂ of hosts, I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings: yea, I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay it to heart. 3Â Behold, I will corrupt your seed, and spread dung upon your faces, even the dung of your solemn feasts; and one shall take you away with it. 4Â And ye shall know that I have sent this commandment unto you, that my covenant might be with Levi, saith theÂ LordÂ of hosts. 5Â My covenant was with him of life and peace; and I gave them to him for the fear wherewith he feared me, and was afraid before my name. 6Â The law of truth was in his mouth, and iniquity was not found in his lips: he walked with me in peace and equity, and did turn many away from iniquity. 7Â For the priest's lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth: for he is the messenger of theÂ LordÂ of hosts. 8Â But ye are departed out of the way; ye have caused many to stumble at the law; ye have corrupted the covenant of Levi, saith theÂ LordÂ of hosts. 9Â Therefore have I also made you contemptible and base before all the people, according as ye have not kept my ways, but have been partial in the law. 10Â Have we not all one father? hath not one God created us? why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers? 11Â Judah hath dealt treacherously, and an abomination is committed in Israel and in Jerusalem; for Judah hath profaned the holiness of theÂ LordÂ which he loved, and hath married the daughter of a strange god. 12Â TheÂ LordÂ will cut off the man that doeth this, the master and the scholar, out of the tabernacles of Jacob, and him that offereth an offering unto theÂ LordÂ of hosts. 13Â And this have ye done again, covering the altar of theÂ LordÂ with tears, with weeping, and with crying out, insomuch that he regardeth not the offering any more, or receiveth it with good will at your hand. 14Â Yet ye say, Wherefore? Because theÂ LordÂ hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt treacherously: yet is she thy companion, and the wife of thy covenant. 15Â And did not he make one? Yet had he the residue of the spirit. And wherefore one? That he might seek a godly seed. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth. 16Â For theÂ Lord, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away: for one covereth violence with his garment, saith theÂ LordÂ of hosts: therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously. 17Â Ye have wearied theÂ LordÂ with your words. Yet ye say, Wherein have we wearied him? When ye say, Every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of theÂ Lord, and he delighteth in them; or, Where is the God of judgment? Hebrew Interlinear
