The Book of Malachi

Chapter 1


The burden of the word of the LORD to Israel by Malachi.


I have loved1 you, saith1 the LORD. Yet ye say,1 Wherein hast thou loved1 us? [Was] not Esau Jacob's brother? saith7 the LORD: yet I loved4 Jacob,


And I hated1 Esau, and laid4 his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness.


Whereas Edom saith,4 We are impoverished,27 but we will return4 and build4 the desolate places; thus saith1 the LORD of hosts, They shall build,4 but I will throw down;4 and they shall call1 them, The border of wickedness, and, The people against whom the LORD hath indignation1 for ever.


And your eyes shall see,4 and ye shall say,4 The LORD will be magnified4 from the border of Israel.


A son honoureth17 [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? saith1 the LORD of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise6 my name. And ye say,1 Wherein have we despised1 thy name?


Ye offer56 polluted30 bread upon mine altar; and ye say,1 Wherein have we polluted14 thee? In that ye say,2 The table of the LORD [is] contemptible.12


And if ye offer55 the blind for sacrifice,2 [is it] not evil? and if ye offer55 the lame and sick,6 [is it] not evil? offer54 it now unto thy governor; will he be pleased4 with thee, or accept4 thy person? saith1 the LORD of hosts.


And now, I pray you, beseech16 6440 God that he will be gracious4 unto us: this hath been by your means: will he regard4 your persons? saith1 the LORD of hosts.


Who [is there] even among you that would shut4 the doors [for nought]? neither do ye kindle55 [fire] on mine altar for nought. I have no pleasure in you, saith1 the LORD of hosts, neither will I accept4 an offering at your hand.


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 incense94 [shall be] offered94 unto my name, and a pure offering: for my name [shall be] great among the heathen, saith1 the LORD of hosts.


But ye have profaned18 it, in that ye say,2 The table of the LORD [is] polluted;30 and the fruit thereof, [even] his meat, [is] contemptible.12


Ye said1 also, Behold, what a weariness [is it]! and ye have snuffed52 at it, saith1 the LORD of hosts; and ye brought52 [that which was] torn,7 and the lame, and the sick;6 thus ye brought52 an offering: should I accept4 this of your hand? saith1 the LORD.


But cursed7 [be] the deceiver,6 which hath in his flock a male, and voweth,6 and sacrificeth6 unto the Lord a corrupt thing:94 for I [am] a great King, saith1 the LORD of hosts, and my name [is] dreadful12 among the heathen.
