Malachi, chapter 3, Vulgate and King James Version

Chapter 3

Vulgate


   1 Ecce ego mittam angelum meum, et praeparabit viam an te faciem meam; et statim veniet ad templum suum Dominator, quem vos quaeritis, et angelus testamenti, quem vos vultis. Ecce venit, dicit Dominus exercituum;
   2 et quis poterit sustinere diem adventus eius, et quis stabit, cum apparebit? Ipse enim quasi ignis conflans et quasi herba fullonum;
   3 et sedebit conflans et emundans argentum et purgabit filios Levi et colabit eos quasi aurum et quasi argentum, et erunt Domino offerentes sacrificia in iustitia.
   4 Et placebit Domino sacrificium Iudae et Ierusalem sicut diebus pristinis et sicut annis antiquis.
   5 Et accedam ad vos in iudicio; et ero testis velox maleficis et adulteris et periuris et, qui opprimunt mercennarios, viduas et pupillos et flectunt ius peregrinorum nec timuerunt me, dicit Dominus exercituum.
   6 Ego enim Dominus et non mutatus sum; sed vos, filii lacob, nondum ad finem pervenistis.
   7 A diebus enim patrum vestrorum recessistis a praeceptis legitimis meis et non custodistis ea. Revertimini ad me, et revertar ad vos, dicit Dominus exercituum. Et dicitis: "In quo revertemur?".
   8 Numquid homo potest defraudare Deum? Sed vos defraudatis me. Et dicitis: "In quo defraudavimus te?". In decimis et in primitiis.
   9 Maledictione vos maledicti estis, quia me vos defraudatis, gens tota.
   10 Inferte omnem decimam in horreum, et sit cibus in domo mea; et probate me super hoc, dicit Dominus exercituum: si non aperuero vobis cataractas caeli et effudero vobis benedictionem usque ad abundantiam
   11 et increpabo pro vobis devorantem, et non corrumpet fructum terrae, nec erit sterilis vobis vinea in agro, dicit Dominus exercituum.
   12 Et beatos vos dicent omnes gentes; eritis enim vos terra desiderabilis, dicit Dominus exercituum.
   13 Invaluerunt super me verba vestra, dicit Dominus;
   14 et dicitis: "Quid locuti sumus contra te?". Dicitis: "Vanum est servire Deo; et, quod emolumentum, quia custodivimus praecepta eius et quia ambulavimus tristes coram Domino exercituum?
   15 Ergo nunc beatos dicimus arrogantes; siquidem aedificati sunt facientes impietatem et tentaverunt Deum et salvi facti sunt".
   16 Tunc locuti sunt timentes Dominum, unusquisque cum proximo suo. Et attendit Dominus et audivit; et scriptus est liber memorabilium coram eo timentibus Dominum et cogitantibus nomen eius.
   17 Erunt mihi, ait Dominus exercituum, in die, qua ego facio in peculium; et parcam eis, sicut parcit vir filio suo servienti sibi.
   18 Rursum videbitis quid sit inter iustum et impium, inter servientem Deo et non servientem ei.
   19 Ecce enim dies veniet succensa quasi caminus; et erunt omnes superbi et omnes facientes impietatem stipula; et inflammabit eos dies veniens, dicit Dominus exercituum, quae non derelinquet eis radicem et ramum.
   20 Et orietur vobis timentibus nomen meum sol iustitiae et sanitas in pennis eius; et egrediemini et salietis sicut vituli saginati
   21 et calcabitis impios, cum fuerint cinis sub planta pedum vestrorum in die, quam ego facio, dicit Dominus exercituum.
   22 Mementote legis Moysi servi mei, cui mandavi in Horeb ad omnem Israel praecepta et iudicia.
   23 Ecce ego mittam vobis Eliam prophetam, antequam veniat dies Domini magnus et horribilis;
   24 et convertet cor patrum ad filios et cor filiorum ad patres eorum, ne veniam et percutiam terram anathemate".

King James Version


   1 Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.
   2 But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' sope:
   3 And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.
   4 Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the LORD, as in the days of old, and as in former years.
   5 And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me, saith the LORD of hosts.
   6 For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.
   7 ¶ Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them. Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the LORD of hosts. But ye said, Wherein shall we return?
   8 ¶ Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.
   9 Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation.
   10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
   11 And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts.
   12 And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of hosts.
   13 ¶ Your words have been stout against me, saith the LORD. Yet ye say, What have we spoken so much against thee?
   14 Ye have said, It is vain to serve God: and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the LORD of hosts?
   15 And now we call the proud happy; yea, they that work wickedness are set up; yea, they that tempt God are even delivered.
   16 ¶ Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.
   17 And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.
   18 Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.
