Malachi



Malachi, chapter 1, Vulgate and King James Version

Chapter 1

Vulgate


   1 Oraculum. Verbum Domini ad Israel in manu Malachiae.
   2 "Dilexi vos, dicit Dominus, et dixistis: "In quo dilexisti nos?". Nonne frater erat Esau Iacob?, dicit Dominus; et dilexi Iacob,
   3 Esau autem odio habui et posui montes eius in solitudinem et hereditatem eius thoibus deserti.
   4 Quod si dixerit Edom: "Destructi sumus, sed revertentes aedificabimus, quae destructa sunt", haec dicit Dominus exercituum: Isti aedificabunt, et ego destruam; et vocabuntur 'Termini impietatis' et 'Populus, cui iratus est Dominus usque in aeternum'.
   5 Et oculi vestri videbunt, et vos dicetis: "Magnificatus est Dominus ultra terminos Israel".
   6 Filius honorat patrem, et servus dominum suum. Si ergo pater ego sum, ubi est honor meus? Et si Dominus ego sum, ubi est timor meus?, dicit Dominus exercituum ad vos, o sacerdotes, qui despicitis nomen meum et dicitis: "In quo despeximus nomen tuum?".
   7 Offertis super altare meum panem pollutum et dicitis: "In quo polluimus te?". In eo quod dicitis: "Mensa Domini contemptibilis est".
   8 Si offeratis caecum ad immolandum, nonne malum est? Et si offeratis claudum et languidum, nonne malum est? Offer illud duci tuo, si placuerit ei, aut si susceperit faciem tuam!, dicit Dominus exercituum.
   9 Sed nunc deprecamini vultum Dei, ut misereatur vestri! De manu enim vestra factum est hoc. Num suscipiet facies vestras?, dicit Dominus exercituum.
   10 Quis est in vobis, qui claudat ostia, ne incendatis altare meum gratuito? Non est mihi voluntas in vobis, dicit Dominus exercituum; et munus non suscipiam de manu vestra.
   11 Ab ortu enim solis usque ad occasum magnum est nomen meum in gentibus, et in omni loco sacrificatur et offertur nomini meo oblatio munda, quia magnum nomen meum in gentibus, dicit Dominus exercituum.
   12 Vos autem polluistis illud in eo quod dicitis: "Mensa Domini contaminata est, et contemptibilis esca eius".
   13 Et dicitis: "Quantus labor!", et despicitis illam, dicit Dominus exercituum. Et infertis de rapinis claudum et languidum et infertis sicut munus. Numquid suscipiam illud de manu vestra?, dicit Dominus.
   14 Maledictus dolosus, qui habet in grege suo masculum et votum faciens immolat debile Domino. Quia Rex magnus ego, dicit Dominus exercituum, et nomen meum horribile in gentibus.

King James Version


   1 The burden of the word of the LORD to Israel by Malachi.
   2 I have loved you, saith the LORD. Yet ye say, Wherein hast thou loved us? Was not Esau Jacob's brother? saith the LORD: yet I loved Jacob,
   3 And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness.
   4 Whereas Edom saith, We are impoverished, but we will return and build the desolate places; thus saith the LORD of hosts, They shall build, but I will throw down; and they shall call them, The border of wickedness, and, The people against whom the LORD hath indignation for ever.
   5 And your eyes shall see, and ye shall say, The LORD will be magnified from the border of Israel.
   6 ¶ A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father, where is mine honour? and if I be a master, where is my fear? saith the LORD of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise my name. And ye say, Wherein have we despised thy name?
   7 Ye offer polluted bread upon mine altar; and ye say, Wherein have we polluted thee? In that ye say, The table of the LORD is contemptible.
   8 And if ye offer the blind for sacrifice, is it not evil? and if ye offer the lame and sick, is it not evil? offer it now unto thy governor; will he be pleased with thee, or accept thy person? saith the LORD of hosts.
   9 And now, I pray you, beseech God that he will be gracious unto us: this hath been by your means: will he regard your persons? saith the LORD of hosts.
   10 Who is there even among you that would shut the doors for nought? neither do ye kindle fire on mine altar for nought. I have no pleasure in you, saith the LORD of hosts, neither will I accept an offering at your hand.
   11 For 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, saith the LORD of hosts.
   12 ¶ But ye have profaned it, in that ye say, The table of the LORD is polluted; and the fruit thereof, even his meat, is contemptible.
   13 Ye said also, Behold, what a weariness is it! and ye have snuffed at it, saith the LORD of hosts; and ye brought that which was torn, and the lame, and the sick; thus ye brought an offering: should I accept this of your hand? saith the LORD.
   14 But cursed be the deceiver, which hath in his flock a male, and voweth, and sacrificeth unto the Lord a corrupt thing: for I am a great King, saith the LORD of hosts, and my name is dreadful among the heathen.
