Malachi 2
NMV
2
1And now, O you2f priests, this commandment [is] for you.
2If you2f will not hear, and if you2f will not lay [it] to heart, to give glory unto my name, says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) Tz’va’ot [of the Heavenly Armies], I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings: yes, I have cursed them already, because you2f do not lay [it] to heart.
3Behold, I will corrupt your seed, and spread dung upon your faces, [even] the dung of your solemn feasts; and [one] shall take you away with it.
4And you2f shall know that I have sent this commandment unto you, that my covenant might be with Levi (Levite) [Adhesion, Joiner], says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) Tz’va’ot [of the Heavenly Armies].
5My covenant was with him of life and peace; and I gave them to him [for] the fear which he feared me, and was afraid before my name.
6The law of twas in his mouth, and iniquity was not found in his lips: he walked with me in peace and equity, and did turn many away from iniquity.
7For the priest’s lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the Torah at his mouth: for he [is] the messenger of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) Tz’va’ot [of the Heavenly Armies].
8But you2f are departed out of the way; you2f have caused many to stumble at the law; you2f have corrupted the covenant of Levi (Levite) [Adhesion, Joiner], says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) Tz’va’ot [of the Heavenly Armies].
9Therefore have I also made you contemptible and base before all the people, according as you2f have not kept my ways, but have been partial in the law.
10Have we not all one father? has not one God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] created us? why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers?
11Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised] has dealt treacherously, and an abomination is committed in Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] and in Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace]; for Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised] has profaned the holiness of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) which he loved, and has married the daughter of a strange god.
12The Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) will cut off the man that does this, the master and the scholar, out of the tabernacles of Ya’akov [Heal of God], and him that offers an offering unto the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) Tz’va’ot [of the Heavenly Armies].
13And this have you2f done again, covering the altar of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) with tears, with weeping, and with crying out, insomuch that he regards not the offering any more, or receives [it] with good will at your hand.
14Yet you2f say, For what reason? Because the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) has been witness between youi and the wife of youi youth, against whom youi have dealt treacherously: yet [is] she youi companion, and the wife of youi covenant.
15And did not he make one? Yet had he the residue (part that remains, the rest) of the spirit. And wherefore one? That he might seek a godly seed. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth.
16For the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), the God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], says that he hates putting away: for [one] covers violence with his garment, says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) Tz’va’ot [of the Heavenly Armies]: therefore take heed to your spirit, that you2f deal not treacherously.
17You2f have wearied the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) with your words. Yet you2f say, Wherein have we wearied [him]? When you2f say, Every one that does evil [is] good in the sight of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), and he delights in them; or, Where [is] the God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] of judgment?
