Malachi 2 - AMP

2 If you will not hear and if you will not lay it to heart to give glory to My name, says the Lord of hosts, then I will send the curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings; yes, I have already turned them to curses because you do not lay it to heart. 3 Behold, I will rebuke your seed , and I will spread the Instead of the edible portions of the sacrificed animals--the shoulder, cheeks, and stomach--which were the wages for the work of the priests (Deut. 18:3).dung from the festival offerings upon your faces, and you shall be taken away with it. 4 And you shall know, recognize, and understand that I have sent this decree to you priests, to be My covenant with Levi , says the Lord of hosts. 5 My covenant was to give him life and peace, because of the fear with which would revere Me and stand in awe of My name. 6 The law of truth was in mouth, and unrighteousness was not found in his lips; he walked with Me in peace and uprightness and turned many away from iniquity. 7 For the priest's lips should guard and keep pure the knowledge , and the people should seek (inquire for and require) instruction at his mouth; for he is the messenger of the Lord of hosts. 8 But you have turned aside out of the way; you have caused many to stumble by your instruction ; you have corrupted the covenant of Levi , says the Lord of hosts. 9 Therefore have I also made you despised and abased before all the people, inasmuch as you have not kept My ways but have shown favoritism to persons in your administration of the law . 10 Have we not all one Father? Has not one God created us? Why then do we deal faithlessly and treacherously each against his brother, profaning the covenant of our fathers? 11 Judah has been faithless and dealt treacherously, and an abomination has been committed in Israel and in Jerusalem; for Judah has profaned the holy sanctuary of the Lord which He loves, and has married the daughter of a foreign god . 12 The Lord will cast out of the tents of Jacob to the last man those who do this , the master and the servant alike, even him who brings an offering to the Lord of hosts. 13 And this you do with double guilt; you cover the altar of the Lord with tears , and with weeping and crying out because the Lord does not regard your offering any more or accept it with favor at your hand. 14 Yet you ask, Why does He reject it? Because the Lord was witness between you and the wife of your youth, against whom you have dealt treacherously and to whom you were faithless. Yet she is your companion and the wife of your covenant . 15 And did not God make one ? Did not One make you and preserve your spirit alive? And why one? Because He sought a godly offspring . Therefore take heed to yourselves, and let no one deal treacherously and be faithless to the wife of his youth. 16 For the Lord, the God of Israel, says: I hate divorce and marital separation and him who covers his garment with violence. Therefore keep a watch upon your spirit , that you deal not treacherously and faithlessly . 17 You have wearied the Lord with your words. Yet you say, In what way have we wearied Him? you say, Everyone who does evil is good in the sight of the Lord and He delights in them. Or , Where is the God of justice?
