Malachi 1

1:1 The burden of a word of Jehovah unto Israel by the hand of Malachi: 1:2 I have loved you, said Jehovah, And ye have said, `In what hast Thou loved us' 1:3 Is not Esau Jacob's brother --an affirmation of Jehovah, And I love Jacob, and Esau I have hated, And I make his mountains a desolation, And his inheritance for dragons of a wilderness. 1:4 Because Edom saith, `We have been made poor, And we turn back and we build the wastes,' Thus said Jehovah of Hosts: They do build, and I do destroy, And [men] have called to them, `O region of wickedness,' `O people whom Jehovah defied to the age.' 1:5 And your eyes do see, and ye say, `Magnified is Jehovah beyond the border of Israel,  1:6 A son honoureth a father, and a servant his master. And if I [am] a father, where [is] Mine honour And if I [am] a master, where [is] My fear Said Jehovah of Hosts to you, O priests, despising My name! And ye have said: `In what have we despised Thy name' 1:7 Ye are bringing nigh on Mine altar polluted bread, And ye have said: `In what have we polluted Thee' In your saying: `The table of Jehovah--it [is] despicable,' 1:8 And when ye bring nigh the blind for sacrifice, `There is no evil,' And when ye bring nigh the lame and sick, `There is no evil;' Bring it near, I pray thee, to thy governor--Doth he accept thee or doth he lift up thy face Said Jehovah of Hosts. 1:9 And now, appease, I pray thee, the face of God, And He doth favour us; From your own hand hath this been, Doth He accept of you appearances Said Jehovah of Hosts. 1:10 Who [is] even among you, And he shutteth the two-leaved doors Yea, ye do not kindle Mine altar for nought, I have no pleasure in you, said Jehovah of Hosts, And a present I do not accept of your hand. 1:11 For, from the rising of the sun to its going in, Great [is] My name among nations, And in every place perfume is brought nigh to My name, and a pure present, For great [is] My name among nations, Said Jehovah of Hosts. 1:12 And ye are polluting it in your saying, `The table of Jehovah--it is polluted, As to its fruit--despicable is its food.' 1:13 And ye have said, `Lo, what a weariness,' And ye have puffed at it, said Jehovah of Hosts, And ye have brought in plunder, And the lame and the sick, And ye have brought in the present! Do I accept it from your hand said Jehovah. 1:14 And cursed [is] a deceiver, who hath in his drove a male, And is vowing, and is sacrificing a marred thing to the Lord, For a great king [am] I, said Jehovah of Hosts, And My name [is] revered among nations!
