Malachi 1:8; Malachi 2:12; Malachi 3:3

lWhen you offer blind animals in sacrifice, is that not evil? And when you offer those that are lame or sick, is that not evil? Present that to your governor; will he accept you or show you favor? says the Lord of hosts.

12 May the Lord cut off from the tents of Jacob any descendant1 of the man who does this, who vbrings an offering to the Lord of hosts!

He will sit nas a refiner and purifier of silver, and he will purify the sons of Levi and refine them like gold and silver, and they will bring oofferings in righteousness to the Lord.1
