Malachi 2

And now, O ye priests
<03548>_,
this commandment
<04687>
[is] for you.
If ye will not hear
<08085> (8799)_,
and if ye will not lay
<07760> (8799)
[it] to heart
<03820>_,
to give
<05414> (8800)
glory
<03519>
unto my name
<08034>_,
saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_,
I will even send
<07971> (8765)
a curse
<03994>
upon you, and I will curse
<0779> (8804)
your blessings
<01293>_:
yea, I have cursed
<0779> (8804)
them already, because ye do not lay
<07760> (8802)
[it] to heart
<03820>_.
Behold, I will corrupt
<01605> (8802)
your seed
<02233>_,
and spread
<02219> (8765)
dung
<06569>
upon your faces
<06440>_,
[even] the dung
<06569>
of your solemn feasts
<02282>_;
and [one] shall take you away
<05375> (8804)
with it. {corrupt: or, reprove} {spread: Heb. scatter} {one...: or, it shall take you away to it}
And ye shall know
<03045> (8804)
that I have sent
<07971> (8765)
this commandment
<04687>
unto you, that my covenant
<01285>
might be with Levi
<03878>_,
saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_.
My covenant
<01285>
was with him of life
<02416>
and peace
<07965>_;
and I gave
<05414> (8799)
them to him [for] the fear
<04172>
wherewith he feared
<03372> (8799)
me, and was afraid
<02865> (8738)
before
<06440>
my name
<08034>_.
The law
<08451>
of truth
<0571>
was in his mouth
<06310>_,
and iniquity
<05766>
was not found
<04672> (8738)
in his lips
<08193>_:
he walked
<01980> (8804)
with me in peace
<07965>
and equity
<04334>_,
and did turn
<07725> (0)
many
<07227>
away
<07725> (8689)
from iniquity
<05771>_.
For the priest's
<03548>
lips
<08193>
should keep
<08104> (8799)
knowledge
<01847>_,
and they should seek
<01245> (8762)
the law
<08451>
at his mouth
<06310>_:
for he [is] the messenger
<04397>
of the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_.
But ye are departed
<05493> (8804)
out of the way
<01870>_;
ye have caused many
<07227>
to stumble
<03782> (8689)
at the law
<08451>_;
ye have corrupted
<07843> (8765)
the covenant
<01285>
of Levi
<03878>_,
saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_.
{stumble at: or, fall in}
Therefore have I also made
<05414> (8804)
you contemptible
<0959> (8737)
and base
<08217>
before all the people
<05971>_,
according
<06310>
as ye have not kept
<08104> (8802)
my ways
<01870>_,
but have been partial
<05375> (8802) <06440>
in the law
<08451>_.
{have been...: or, lifted up the face against: Heb. accepted faces}
Have we not all one
<0259>
father
<01>_?
hath not one
<0259>
God
<0410>
created
<01254> (8804)
us? why do we deal treacherously
<0898> (8799)
every man
<0376>
against his brother
<0251>_,
by profaning
<02490> (8763)
the covenant
<01285>
of our fathers
<01>_?
Judah
<03063>
hath dealt treacherously
<0898> (8804)_,
and an abomination
<08441>
is committed
<06213> (8738)
in Israel
<03478>
and in Jerusalem
<03389>_;
for Judah
<03063>
hath profaned
<02490> (8765)
the holiness
<06944>
of the LORD
<03068>
which he loved
<0157> (8804)_,
and hath married
<01166> (8804)
the daughter
<01323>
of a strange
<05236>
god
<0410>_.
{loved: or, ought to love}
The LORD
<03068>
will cut off
<03772> (8686)
the man
<0376>
that doeth
<06213> (8799)
this, the master
<05782> (8802)
and the scholar
<06030> (8802)_,
out of the tabernacles
<0168>
of Jacob
<03290>_,
and him that offereth
<05066> (8688)
an offering
<04503>
unto the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_.
{the master...: or, him that waketh, and him that answereth}
And this have ye done
<06213> (8799)
again
<08145>_,
covering
<03680> (8763)
the altar
<04196>
of the LORD
<03068>
with tears
<01832>_,
with weeping
<01065>_,
and with crying out
<0603>_,
insomuch that he regardeth
<06437> (8800)
not the offering
<04503>
any more, or receiveth
<03947> (8800)
[it] with good will
<07522>
at your hand
<03027>_.
Yet ye say
<0559> (8804)_,
Wherefore
<04100>_?
Because the LORD
<03068>
hath been witness
<05749> (8689)
between thee and the wife
<0802>
of thy youth
<05271>_,
against whom thou hast dealt treacherously
<0898> (8804)_:
yet [is] she thy companion
<02278>_,
and the wife
<0802>
of thy covenant
<01285>_.
And did not he make
<06213> (8804)
one
<0259>_?
Yet had he the residue
<07605>
of the spirit
<07307>_.
And wherefore one
<0259>_?
That he might seek
<01245> (8764)
a godly
<0430>
seed
<02233>_.
Therefore take heed
<08104> (8738)
to your spirit
<07307>_,
and let none deal treacherously
<0898> (8799)
against the wife
<0802>
of his youth
<05271>_.
{residue: or, excellency} {godly...: Heb. seed of God} {treacherously: or, unfaithfully}
For the LORD
<03068>_,
the God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_,
saith
<0559> (8804)
that he hateth
<08130> (8804)
putting away
<07971> (8763)_:
for [one] covereth
<03680> (8765)
violence
<02555>
with his garment
<03830>_,
saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_:
therefore take heed
<08104> (8738)
to your spirit
<07307>_,
that ye deal not treacherously
<0898> (8799)_.
{that he...: or, if he hate her, put her away} {putting...: Heb. to put away}
Ye have wearied
<03021> (8689)
the LORD
<03068>
with your words
<01697>_.
Yet ye say
<0559> (8804)_,
Wherein have we wearied
<03021> (8689)
[him]? When ye say
<0559> (8800)_,
Every one that doeth
<06213> (8802)
evil
<07451>
[is] good
<02896>
in the sight
<05869>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and he delighteth
<02654> (8804)
in them; or, Where [is] the God
<0430>
of judgment
<04941>_?
