2 ¶ “I have aloved you,” says the LORD. But you say, “How have You loved us?” “[Was] not Esau Jacob’s brother?” declares the LORD. “Yet I bhave loved Jacob; 3 but I have hated Esau, and I have amade his mountains a desolation and [appointed] his inheritance for the jackals of the wilderness.” 4 Though Edom says, “We have been abeaten down, but we will Ibreturn and build up the ruins”; thus says the LORD of hosts, “They may cbuild, but I will tear down; and [men] will call them the IIwicked territory, and the people IIItoward whom the LORD is indignant dforever.” 5 Your eyes will see this and you will say, “aThe LORD Ibe magnified beyond the IIborder of Israel!”

Sin of the Priests

6 ¶ “ ‘A son ahonors [his] father, and a servant his master. Then if I am a bfather, where is My honor? And if I am a master, where is My Irespect?’ says the LORD of hosts to you, O cpriests who despise My name. But you say, ‘How have we despised Your name?’ 7 [You] are presenting adefiled Ibfood upon My altar. But you say, ‘How have we defiled You?’ In that you say, ‘The ctable of the LORD is to be despised.’ 8 But when you present the ablind for sacrifice, is it not evil? And when you present the lame and sick, is it not evil? IWhy not offer it to your bgovernor? Would he be pleased with you? Or would he receive you kindly?” says the LORD of hosts. 9 “But now Iwill you not aentreat God’s favor, that He may be gracious to us? IIWith such an offering on your part, will He breceive any of you kindly?” says the LORD of hosts. 10 “Oh that there were one among you who would ashut the Igates, that you might not uselessly kindle [fire on] My altar! I am not pleased with you,” says the LORD of hosts, “bnor will I accept an offering from IIyou. 11 For from the arising of the sun even to its setting, bMy name [will be] cgreat among the nations, and in every place dincense is going to be offered to My name, and a grain offering [that is] pure; for My name [will be] egreat among the nations,” says the LORD of hosts. 12 “But you are aprofaning it, in that you say, ‘The table of the Lord is defiled, and as for its fruit, its food is to be despised.’ 13 You also say, ‘IMy, how atiresome it is!’ And you disdainfully sniff at it,” says the LORD of hosts, “and you bring what was taken by brobbery and [what is] clame or sick; so you bring the offering! Should I dreceive that from your hand?” says the LORD. 14 “But cursed be the aswindler who has a male in his flock and vows it, but sacrifices a bblemished animal to the Lord, for I am a great cKing,” says the LORD of hosts, “and My name is Idfeared among the IInations.”

Malachi complaineth of Israel's unkindness.

1 ¶ The burden of the word of the LORD to Israel by Malachi. 2 I have loved you, saith the LORD. Yet ye say, Wherein hast thou loved us? [Was] not Esau Jacob's brother? saith the LORD: yet I loved Jacob, 3 And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness. 4 Whereas Edom saith, We are impoverished, but we will return and build the desolate places; thus saith the LORD of hosts, They shall build, but I will throw down; and they shall call them, The border of wickedness, and, The people against whom the LORD hath indignation for ever. 5 And your eyes shall see, and ye shall say, The LORD will be magnified from the border of Israel.

Of their irreligiousness,

6 ¶ A son honoureth [his] father, and a servant his master: if then I [be] a father, where [is] mine honour? and if I [be] a master, where [is] my fear? saith the LORD of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise my name. And ye say, Wherein have we despised thy name? 7 Ye offer polluted bread upon mine altar; and ye say, Wherein have we polluted thee? In that ye say, The table of the LORD [is] contemptible. 8 And if ye offer the blind for sacrifice, [is it] not evil? and if ye offer the lame and sick, [is it] not evil? offer it now unto thy governor; will he be pleased with thee, or accept thy person? saith the LORD of hosts. 9 And now, I pray you, beseech God that he will be gracious unto us: this hath been by your means: will he regard your persons? saith the LORD of hosts. 10 Who [is there] even among you that would shut the doors [for nought]? neither do ye kindle [fire] on mine altar for nought. I have no pleasure in you, saith the LORD of hosts, neither will I accept an offering at your hand. 11 For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same my name [shall be] great among the Gentiles; and in every place incense [shall be] offered unto my name, and a pure offering: for my name [shall be] great among the heathen, saith the LORD of hosts.

and profaneness.

12 ¶ But ye have profaned it, in that ye say, The table of the LORD [is] polluted; and the fruit thereof, [even] his meat, [is] contemptible. 13 Ye said also, Behold, what a weariness [is it]! and ye have snuffed at it, saith the LORD of hosts; and ye brought [that which was] torn, and the lame, and the sick; thus ye brought an offering: should I accept this of your hand? saith the LORD. 14 But cursed [be] the deceiver, which hath in his flock a male, and voweth, and sacrificeth unto the Lord a corrupt thing: for I [am] a great King, saith the LORD of hosts, and my name [is] dreadful among the heathen.
