1 The burden of the word of Jehovah to Israel by the hand of Malachi.

2 I have loved you, says Jehovah. And you say, In what way hast Thou loved us? Was not Esau the brother of Jacob? says Jehovah; and I loved Jacob,

3 but I hated Esau, and made his mountains and his heritage a desolation for the dragons of the wilderness.

4 For Edom says, We are impoverished, but we will return and build the wastes. Thus says Jehovah of Armies: They shall build, but I will break·​·down; and they shall call them, The border of wickedness, and, The people against whom Jehovah has·​·indignation, even·​·to eternity.

5 And your eyes shall see, and you shall say, Jehovah will be magnified from the border of Israel.

6 A son gives·​·glory to his father, and a servant to his lord; and if I be a father, where is My glory, and if I be a lord, where is My fear? says Jehovah of Armies to you, the priests who despise My name. And you say, In what have we despised Thy name?

7 You present polluted bread upon My altar; and you say, In what have we polluted Thee? In that you say, The table of Jehovah, it is despised.

8 And when you present the blind for a sacrifice, is it not evil? And when you present the lame and sick, is it not evil? Offer it now to thy governor; will he be well·​·pleased with thee, or accept thy faces*? says Jehovah of Armies.

9 And now, I pray you, implore the faces of God that He may be·​·gracious to us; while this is from your hand, will He accept* the faces from you? says Jehovah of Armies.

10 Who also is among you who would rather* shut the doors, and not light My altar without·​·cause? I have no delight in you, says Jehovah of Armies, neither will I be·​·well·​·pleased with a gift·​·offering from your hand.

11 For from the rising of the sun and until its going·​·in, My name shall be great among the nations; and in every place burning·​·incense shall be presented to My name, and a clean gift·​·offering; for My name shall be great among the nations, says Jehovah of Armies.

12 But you have profaned it when you say, The table of Jehovah, it is polluted, His bounty is contemptible, even His food.

13 And you said, Behold, what weariness! And you have snuffed at it, says Jehovah of Armies; and you brought that which was taken·​·by·​·robbery, and the lame, and the sick; and you brought these as a gift·​·offering. Should I be·​·well·​·pleased with this from your hand? says Jehovah.

14 But cursed be he who defrauds, and there is in his drove a male, and he vows, and sacrifices to the Lord what is corrupt; for a great King am I, says Jehovah of Armies, and My name is fearful among the nations.
