The Book of MalakYah [Messenger of Yahwah]-[Malachi]

Chapter 1

1 The burden of the Word of Yahweh to Yisrayah [Israel] by MalakYah [Malachi].

2 I love you: says Yahweh [YHWH]. Yet you say: Wherein do you love us? Was Esau not Yaacob's brother: says Yahweh; yet I loved Yaacob [Jacob]?

3 Esau I hated, made his mountains a desolation, and gave his heritage to the jackals of the wilderness.

4 Whereas Edom says: We are beaten down, but we will return and build the waste places. This says Yahweh of hosts: They will build, but I will throw down. Men will call them 'The border of wickedness', and 'The people against whom Yahweh has indignation forever'.

5 Your eyes will see, and you will say: Yahweh is magnified beyond the border of Yisrayah.

6 A son honors his father, and a servant his master. If then I am a Father, where is my honor? And if I am a Master, where is my fear? says Yahweh of hosts unto you, O priests who despise my Name. And you say: Wherein did we despise your Name?

7 You offer polluted bread upon my altar. And you say: Wherein did we pollute you? In that you say: The table of Yahweh is contemptible.

8 And, when you offer the blind for sacrifice, it is no evil! And, when you offer the lame and sick, it is no evil! Present it now unto your governor, will he be pleased with you? Or will he accept your person: says Yahweh of hosts?

9 I pray you, entreat the favor of Yahweh, that He may be gracious unto us. This was by your means, will He accept any of your persons: says Yahweh of hosts?

10 Oh that there were one among you who would shut the doors, that you might not kindle fire on my altar in vain! I have no pleasure in you: says Yahweh of hosts; neither will I accept an offering at your hand.

11 My name is being honored among pagans from sunrise to sunset, and a pure offering burned in honor of my name on every sacred spot (for among pagans my name is being honored: says Yahweh of hosts).

12 But you profane it, in that you say: The table of Yahweh is polluted, and the fruit thereof, even its food, is contemptible.

13 You say also: Behold, what a weariness it is! You snuffed at it: says Yahweh of hosts. You brought that which was taken by violence, the lame, and the sick (thus you bring the offering), should I accept this at your hand: says Yahweh?

14 But cursed is the deceiver, who has in his flock a male, and vows, and sacrifices unto Yahweh a blemished thing. I am a great King: says Yahweh of hosts; and my Name is terrible among the Gentiles.

Chapter 2

1 O you priests, this mitzwah is for you.

2 If you will not hear, and if you will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto my Name: says Yahweh of hosts; then I will send the curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings. Yea, I cursed them already, because you do not lay it to heart.

3 Behold, I will rebuke your seed, and spread dung upon your faces, even the dung of your feasts, and you will be taken away with it.

4 You will know I sent this mitzwah to you, that my covenant may be with Levi: says Yahweh of hosts.

5 My covenant was with him of life and peace. I gave them to him that he might fear. And he feared me, and stood in awe of my Name.

6 The torah of truth was in his mouth, and unrighteousness was not found in his lips. He walked with me in peace and uprightness, and turned many away from iniquity.

7 The priest's lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the torah at his mouth, for he is the messenger of Yahweh of hosts.

8 But you are turned aside out of the way, you caused many to stumble in the torah, you corrupted the covenant of Levi: says Yahweh of hosts.

9 Therefore I make you contemptible and base before all the people, according as you did not keep my ways, but had respect of persons in the torah.

10 Have we not all one Father? Did one Yahweh not create us? Why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, profaning the covenant of our fathers?

11 Yahudah deals treacherously, an abomination is committed in Yisrayah, and in Yahrusalem. Yahudah profanes the holiness of Yahweh which He loves, and married the daughter of a foreign god.

12 Yahweh will cut off the man who does this, him who wakes and him who answers, out of the tents of Yaacob, him who offers an offering unto the LORD of hosts.

13 And this again you do; you cover the altar of Yahweh with tears, with weeping, and with sighing, insomuch that He does not regard the offering any more, neither receives it with good will at your hand.

14 Yet you say: Wherefore? Because Yahweh is witness between you and the wife of your youth, against whom you dealt treacherously, though she is your companion, and the wife of your covenant.

15 Did he not make one, although he had the residue of the Spirit? And wherefore one? He sought a righteous seed. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth.

16 I hate putting away: says Yahweh, the Father of Yisrayah; and him who covers his garment with violence. Says Yahweh of hosts: Therefore take heed to your spirit, that you not deal treacherously.

17 You weary Yahweh with your words. Yet you say: Wherein do we weary Him? In that you say: Everyone who does evil is good in the sight of Yahweh, and He delights in them. Where is the Father of justice?

Chapter 3

1 Behold, I send my messenger, and he will prepare The Way before Me. Then the Messiyah, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple. The messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, behold, He comes: says Yahweh of hosts.

2 But who can abide the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? He is like a refiner's fire, and like fuller's soap [bleach].

3 He sits as a refiner and purifier of silver. He purifies the sons of Levi, refines them as gold and silver, and they offer unto Yahweh offerings in righteousness.

4 Then the offering of Yahudah [Judah] and Yahrusalem [Jerusalem] will be pleasant unto Yahweh, as in the days of old, and as in ancient years.

5 I will come near to you to judgment. I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, against the adulterers, against the false swearers, against those who oppress the hireling in his wages (and the widow, and the fatherless), who turn aside the sojourner from his right, and not fear Me: says Yahweh of hosts.

6 I, Yahweh, do not change. Therefore you, O sons of Yaacob, are not consumed.

7 From the days of your fathers you turned aside from my ordinances, and have not kept them. Return unto Me, and I will return unto you: says Yahweh of hosts. But you say: Wherein shall we return?

8 Will a man rob Yahweh? Yet you rob Me. But you say: Wherein do we rob you? In tithes and offerings.

9 You are cursed with the curse, for you rob Me, even this whole nation.

10 Bring you the whole tithe into the store-house, that there may be food in my house, and prove Me now herewith: says Yahweh of hosts; if I will not open the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there will not be room enough to receive it.

11 I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he will not destroy the fruits of your ground, neither will your vine cast its fruit before the time in the field: says Yahweh of hosts.

12 All nations will call you happy, for you will be a delightsome land: says Yahweh of hosts.

13 Your words are stout against Me: says Yahweh. Yet you say: What did we say against you?

14 You said: It is vain to serve Yahweh. What profit is it that we have kept His charge, and that we have walked mournfully before Yahweh of hosts?

15 And now we call the proud happy. Yea, those who work wickedness are built up. Yea, they tempt Yahweh, and escape.

16 Then those who feared Yahweh spoke one with another. Yahweh hearkened, and heard. A book of remembrance was written before Him, for those who feared Yahweh, and who thought upon His Name.

17 They are mine: says Yahweh of hosts; even my own possession, in the day that I make. I will spare them, as a man spares his own son who serves him.

18 Then you will return and discern between the righteous, and the wicked; between him who serves Yahweh, and him who does not serve Him.

Chapter 4

1 Behold, the day comes, it burns as a furnace. All the proud, and all who work wickedness, will be stubble. The day that comes will burn them up: says Yahweh of hosts. It will leave them neither root nor branch.

2 But to you who fear my Name the light of righteousness will arise with healing in its wings. You will go forth, and gambol as calves of the stall.

3 You will tread down the wicked, for they will be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day I make: says Yahweh of hosts.

4 Remember the torah [Law] of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Yisrayah, with statutes and ordinances.

5 Behold, I will send you Yliyah the prophet before the great and terrible day of Yahweh comes. [Elijah, Matthew 17:10-11]

6 It will turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, before I come and smite the earth with a curse.
