strkjv@Malachi:1:1 @ The burden of the word of the LORD Y@hovah# to Israel by Malachi.
strkjv@Malachi:1:2 @ I have loved you, saith n@#um# the LORD Y@hovah#. Yet ye say, Wherein hast thou loved us? Was not Esau Jacobs brother? saith the LORD Y@hovah#: yet I loved Jacob,
strkjv@Malachi:1:3 @ And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness.
strkjv@Malachi:1:4 @ Whereas Edom saith, We are impoverished, but we will return and build the desolate places; thus saith the LORD Y@hovah# 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 Y@hovah# hath indignation for ever.
strkjv@Malachi:1:5 @ And your eyes shall see, and ye shall say, The LORD Y@hovah# will be magnified from the border of Israel.
strkjv@Malachi:1:6 @ 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 Y@hovah# of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise my name. And ye say, Wherein have we despised thy name?
strkjv@Malachi:1:7 @ Ye offer polluted bread upon mine altar; and ye say, Wherein have we polluted thee? In that ye say, The table of the LORD Y@hovah# is contemptible.
strkjv@Malachi:1:8 @ 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 Y@hovah# of hosts.
strkjv@Malachi:1:9 @ 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 Y@hovah# of hosts.
strkjv@Malachi:1:10 @ 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 Y@hovah# of hosts, neither will I accept an offering at your hand.
strkjv@Malachi:1:11 @ 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 Y@hovah# of hosts.
strkjv@Malachi:1:12 @ But ye have profaned it, in that ye say, The table of the LORD Y@hovah# is polluted; and the fruit thereof, even his meat, is contemptible.
strkjv@Malachi:1:13 @ Ye said also, Behold, what a weariness is it! and ye have snuffed at it, saith the LORD Y@hovah# 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 Y@hovah#.
strkjv@Malachi:1:14 @ 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 Y@hovah# of hosts, and my name is dreadful among the heathen.
