Malachi 2

And now, O ye priests, this commandment is for you.
et nunc ad vos mandatum hoc o sacerdotes
If ye will not hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto my name, saith the LORD of hosts, I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings: yea, I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay it to heart.
si nolueritis audire et si nolueritis ponere super cor ut detis gloriam nomini meo ait Dominus exercituum mittam in vos egestatem et maledicam benedictionibus vestris et maledicam illis quoniam non posuistis super cor
Behold, I will corrupt your seed, and spread dung upon your faces, even the dung of your solemn feasts; and one shall take you away with it.
ecce ego proiciam vobis brachium et dispergam super vultum vestrum stercus sollemnitatum vestrarum et adsumet vos secum
And ye shall know that I have sent this commandment unto you, that my covenant might be with Levi, saith the LORD of hosts.
et scietis quia misi ad vos mandatum istud ut esset pactum meum cum Levi dicit Dominus exercituum
My covenant was with him of life and peace; and I gave them to him for the fear wherewith he feared me, and was afraid before my name.
pactum meum fuit cum eo vitae et pacis et dedi ei timorem et timuit me et a facie nominis mei pavebat
The law of truth was in his mouth, and iniquity was not found in his lips: he walked with me in peace and equity, and did turn many away from iniquity.
lex veritatis fuit in ore eius et iniquitas non est inventa in labiis eius in pace et in aequitate ambulavit mecum et multos avertit ab iniquitate
For the priest's lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth: for he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts.
labia enim sacerdotis custodient scientiam et legem requirent ex ore eius quia angelus Domini exercituum est
But ye are departed out of the way; ye have caused many to stumble at the law; ye have corrupted the covenant of Levi, saith the LORD of hosts.
vos autem recessistis de via et scandalizastis plurimos in lege irritum fecistis pactum Levi dicit Dominus exercituum
Therefore have I also made you contemptible and base before all the people, according as ye have not kept my ways, but have been partial in the law.
propter quod et ego dedi vos contemptibiles et humiles omnibus populis sicut non servastis vias meas et accepistis faciem in lege
Have we not all one father? hath not one God created us? why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers?
numquid non pater unus omnium nostrum numquid non Deus unus creavit nos quare ergo despicit unusquisque nostrum fratrem suum violans pactum patrum nostrorum
Judah hath dealt treacherously, and an abomination is committed in Israel and in Jerusalem; for Judah hath profaned the holiness of the LORD which he loved, and hath married the daughter of a strange god.
transgressus est Iuda et abominatio facta est in Israhel et in Hierusalem quia contaminavit Iudas sanctificationem Domini quam dilexit et habuit filiam dei alieni
The LORD will cut off the man that doeth this, the master and the scholar, out of the tabernacles of Jacob, and him that offereth an offering unto the LORD of hosts.
disperdat Dominus virum qui fecerit hoc magistrum et discipulum de tabernaculis Iacob et offerentem munus Domino exercituum
And this have ye done again, covering the altar of the LORD with tears, with weeping, and with crying out, insomuch that he regardeth not the offering any more, or receiveth it with good will at your hand.
et hoc rursum fecistis operiebatis lacrimis altare Domini fletu et mugitu ita ut ultra non respiciam ad sacrificium nec accipiam placabile quid de manu vestra
Yet ye say, Wherefore? Because the LORD hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt treacherously: yet is she thy companion, and the wife of thy covenant.
et dixistis quam ob causam quia Dominus testificatus est inter te et uxorem pubertatis tuae quam tu despexisti et haec particeps tua et uxor foederis tui
And did not he make one? Yet had he the residue of the spirit. And wherefore one? That he might seek a godly seed. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth.
nonne unus fecit et residuum spiritus eius est et quid unus quaerit nisi semen Dei custodite ergo spiritum vestrum et uxorem adulescentiae tuae noli despicere
For the LORD, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away: for one covereth violence with his garment, saith the LORD of hosts: therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously.
cum odio habueris dimitte dicit Dominus Deus Israhel operiet autem iniquitas vestimentum eius dicit Dominus exercituum custodite spiritum vestrum et nolite despicere
Ye have wearied the LORD with your words. Yet ye say, Wherein have we wearied him? When ye say, Every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of the LORD, and he delighteth in them; or, Where is the God of judgment?
laborare fecistis Dominum in sermonibus vestris et dixistis in quo eum fecimus laborare in eo cum diceretis omnis qui facit malum bonus est in conspectu Domini et tales ei placent aut certe ubi est Deus iudicii
