Jeremiah 3:19; Malachi 1:6; 2 Corinthians 6:18; Matthew 6:9

19  I said,

How I would set you among my sons,

and give you a pleasant land,

a heritage most beautiful of all nations.

And I thought you would ncall me, My Father,

and would not turn from following me.


The Priests' Polluted Offerings

gA son honors his father, and a servant his master. If then I am ha father, where is my honor? And if I am ia master, where is my fear? says the Lord of hosts to you, O priests, who despise my name. bBut you say, How have we despised your name?


18  iand I will be a father to you,

and you shall be sons and daughters to me,

says the Lord Almighty.


fPray then like this:

gOur Father in heaven,

hhallowed be iyour name.1
