Warning to the Priests

Unchecked Copy BoxMal 2:1 -

“Therefore, this decree is for you priests:

Unchecked Copy BoxMal 2:2 -

“If you don’t listen, and if you don’t take it to heart to honor my name,” says the LORD of Armies, “I will send a curse among you, and I will curse your blessings. In fact, I have already begun to curse them because you are not taking it to heart.

Unchecked Copy BoxMal 2:3 -

“Look, I am going to rebuke your descendants, and I will spread animal waste[fn] over your faces, the waste from your festival sacrifices, and you will be taken away with it.

Unchecked Copy BoxMal 2:4 -

“Then you will know that I sent you this decree, so that my covenant with Levi may continue,” says the LORD of Armies.

Unchecked Copy BoxMal 2:5 -

“My covenant with him was one of life and peace, and I gave these to him; it called for reverence, and he revered me and stood in awe of my name.

Unchecked Copy BoxMal 2:6 -

“True instruction was in his mouth, and nothing wrong was found on his lips. He walked with me in peace and integrity and turned many from iniquity.

Unchecked Copy BoxMal 2:7 -

“For the lips of a priest should guard knowledge, and people should desire instruction from his mouth, because he is the messenger of the LORD of Armies.

Unchecked Copy BoxMal 2:8 -

“You, on the other hand, have turned from the way. You have caused many to stumble by your instruction. You have violated[fn] the covenant of Levi,” says the LORD of Armies.

Unchecked Copy BoxMal 2:9 -

“So I in turn have made you despised and humiliated before all the people because you are not keeping my ways but are showing partiality in your instruction.”

Judah’s Marital Unfaithfulness

Unchecked Copy BoxMal 2:10 -

Don’t all of us have one Father? Didn’t one God create us? Why then do we act treacherously against one another, profaning the covenant of our fathers?

Unchecked Copy BoxMal 2:11 -

Judah has acted treacherously, and a detestable act has been done in Israel and in Jerusalem. For Judah has profaned the LORD’s sanctuary,[fn] which he loves, and has married the daughter of a foreign god.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxMal 2:12 -

May the LORD cut off from the tents of Jacob the man who does this, whoever he may be,[fn] even if he presents an offering to the LORD of Armies.

Unchecked Copy BoxMal 2:13 -

This is another thing you do. You are covering the LORD’s altar with tears, with weeping and groaning, because he no longer respects your offerings or receives them gladly from your hands.

Unchecked Copy BoxMal 2:14 -

And you ask, “Why? ” Because even though the LORD has been a witness between you and the wife of your youth, you have acted treacherously against her. She was your marriage partner and your wife by covenant.

Unchecked Copy BoxMal 2:15 -

Didn’t God make them one and give them a portion of spirit? What is the one seeking?[fn] Godly offspring. So watch yourselves carefully,[fn] so that no one acts treacherously against the wife of his[fn] youth.

Unchecked Copy BoxMal 2:16 -

“If he hates and divorces his wife,” says the LORD God of Israel, “he[fn] covers his garment with injustice,” says the LORD of Armies. Therefore, watch yourselves carefully,[fn] and do not act treacherously.

Judgment at the LORD’s Coming

Unchecked Copy BoxMal 2:17 -

You have wearied the LORD with your words.

Yet you ask, “How have we wearied him? ”

When you say, “Everyone who does what is evil is good in the LORD’s sight, and he is delighted with them, or else where is the God of justice? ”
