Malachi 1
NMV
1
1The burden of the word of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) to Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] by Mal’akh [My messenger].
2I have loved you, says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate). Yet you2f say, Wherein have youi loved us? [Was] not ‘Esav [Hairy] Ya’akov [Heal of God]’s brother? says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate): yet I loved Ya’akov [Heal of God],
3And I hated ‘Esav [Hairy], and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness.
4Whereas Edom [Red] says, We are impoverished, but we will return and build the desolate places; thus says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) Tz’va’ot [of the Heavenly Armies], They shall build, but I will throw down; and they shall call them, The border of wickedness, and, The people against whom the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) has indignation forever.
5And your eyes shall see, and you2f shall say, The Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) will be magnified from the border of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God].
6A son honors [his] father, and a servant his master: if then I [be] a father, where [is] my honour? and if I [be] a master, where [is] my fear? says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) Tz’va’ot [of the Heavenly Armies] unto you, O priests, that despise my name. And you2f say, Wherein have we despised youi name?
7You2f offer polluted bread upon my altar; and you2f say, Wherein have we polluted youi? In that you2f say, The table of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) [is] contemptible.
8And if you2f offer the blind for sacrifice, [is it] not evil? and if you2f offer the lame and sick, [is it] not evil? offer it now unto youi governor; will he be pleased with youi, or accept youi person? says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) Tz’va’ot [of the Heavenly Armies].
9And now, I pray you, beseech (to call upon; appeal; beg) God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] that he will be gracious unto us: this has been by your means: will he regard your persons? says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) Tz’va’ot [of the Heavenly Armies].
10Who [is there] even among you that would shut the doors [for nothing]? neither do you2f kindle [fire] on my altar for nothing. I have no pleasure in you, says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) Tz’va’ot [of the Heavenly Armies], neither will I accept an offering at your hand.
11For 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, says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) Tz’va’ot [of the Heavenly Armies].
12But you2f have profaned it, in that you2f say, The table of the Lord-Adonai (The Father) [Greatest Above All] [is] polluted; and the fruit thereof, [even] his meat, [is] contemptible.
13You2f said also, Behold, what a weariness [is it]! and you2f have snuffed at it, says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) Tz’va’ot [of the Heavenly Armies]; and you2f brought [that which was] torn, and the lame, and the sick; thus you2f brought an offering: should I accept this of your hand? says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate).
14But cursed [be] the deceiver, which has in his flock a male, and vows, and sacrifices unto the Lord a corrupt thing: for I [am] a great King, says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) Tz’va’ot [of the Heavenly Armies], and my name [is] dreadful among the heathen.
