Malachi 3
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1Behold, I am sending my Messenger and he shall clear the road before me, and suddenly he whom you expect shall come to the temple of LORD JEHOVAH, and the Messenger of the covenant in whom you delight, behold, he comes, says LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts! 2Who endures the day in which he comes, or who can be standing when he is revealed? Because he is like the fire of a refiner and like lye that bleaches 3For he shall return to refine and to purify as silver and he shall purify the sons of Levi and he shall purge them like gold and like silver, and they shall be bringing an offering to LORD JEHOVAH in righteousness 4And the offering of Judea and of Jerusalem will delight LORD JEHOVAH as the days of old and like the years of former time

5And I shall come near to you in judgment and I shall be a swift witness among the Sorcerers and among adulterers and among those who swear with lies and among those who withhold the payment of a hired man and of the settler and of the orphan and of the widow, and are turning against him who is converted to me, and are not in awe of me, says LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts

6Because I AM LORD JEHOVAH and I have not changed, and you sons of Yaqob have not passed from your evil

7From the days of your fathers you have turned from my commandments and you have not listened to them; return to me and I shall return to you, says LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts, and if you say: ”To what shall we return?”

8Will a son of man cheat God as you are cheating me? And if you say, ”In what have we cheated you?” In tithes and in first fruits 9In a curse you are cursed and you are cheating me 10Bring the tithes to my granary, all people, and they shall be food in my house, and test me in this, says LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts, and I shall open to you the windows of Heaven and I shall return to you blessings until you will say, ”It is enough!” 11And I shall rebuke against the devouring worm that it will not destroy the fruit of the land, and it will not destroy for you even one vine in the land, says LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts! 12And all the nations shall praise you when you will be the land of my pleasure, says LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts

13Your words have been grievous against me, says LORD JEHOVAH, and if you say, ”What have we spoken against you?” 14You have said, ”We have served LORD JEHOVAH for nothing, and what has it profited us that we keep his observances, and that we walk humbly before LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts? 15And from now we give blessing to the evil and are building up workers of sin, and they are testing God and they are saved!”

16These things the worshipers of LORD JEHOVAH have spoken, each man with his neighbor, and LORD JEHOVAH listened and he heard and he wrote them in a scroll of memorial before him for his worshipers and for those who praise his name 17And they shall be for me, says LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts, for the day that I make the assembly, and I shall have regard for them as a man has regard for his son who serves him 18And you shall return and you shall observe between the righteous and the evil, and between those who served God and those who did not serve him
