Malaki 1

1:1 The burden of the word of the Lord to Israel by the hand of Malachi.
1:2 I have loved you, sier Herren, og du har sagt, “In what way have you loved us?” Was not Esau brother to Jacob, sier Herren? And have I not loved Jacob,
1:3 but held hatred for Esau? And I have set his mountains in solitude, and his inheritance with the serpents of the desert.
1:4 But if Idumea will say, “We have been destroyed, but when we return, we will build up what has been destroyed,” thus says the Lord of hosts: They will build up, and I will destroy. And they will be called “The limits of impiety,"Og, “The people with whom the Lord has been angry, even to eternity.”
1:5 And your eyes will see. Og du vil si, “May the Lord be magnified beyond the limits of Israel.”
1:6 The son honors the father, and the servant his master. Om, derfor, I am Father, where is my honor? And if I am Master, where is my fear? says the Lord of hosts to you, O priests, who despise my name. Og du har sagt, “In what way, have we despised your name?"
1:7 You offer polluted bread upon my altar, og du sier, “In what way, have we polluted you?” In that you say, “The table of the Lord has been despised.”
1:8 If you offer the blind for sacrifice, is this not evil? And if you offer the lame and the sick, is this not evil? Offer it to your leader, if he will be pleased with it, or if he will accept your face, sier Herren, hærskarenes.
1:9 Og nå, beseech the face of God, so that he may have mercy on you (for by your hand has this been done) om, på noen måte, he might accept your faces, sier Herren, hærskarenes.
1:10 Who is there among you that would close the doors and enflame my altar without pay? I have no favor in you, sier Herren, hærskarenes. And I will not accept a gift from your hand.
1:11 For, from the rising of the sun even to its setting, my name is great among the Gentiles, and in every place, a clean oblation is being sacrificed and offered to my name. For my name is great among the Gentiles, sier Herren, hærskarenes.
1:12 And you have polluted it, in that you say, “The table of the Lord has been contaminated; and that which is placed upon it is contemptible, compared with the fire that devours it.”
1:13 Og du har sagt, “Behold our labor,” and you have exhaled it away, sier Herren, hærskarenes. And you brought in by plunder the lame, and the sick, and brought it in as a gift. How can I receive this from your hand, sier Herren?
1:14 Cursed is the deceitful, who holds in his flock a male, og, when making a vow, offers in sacrifice that which is feeble to the Lord. For I am a great King, sier Herren, hærskarenes, and my name is dreadful among the Gentiles.

Malaki 2

2:1 Og nå, O priests, this command is to you.
2:2 If you will refuse to listen, and if you will refuse to take it to heart, so as to give glory to my name, sier Herren, hærskarenes, I will send destitution upon you, and I will curse your blessings; yes, I will curse them. For you have not taken it to heart.
2:3 Skue, I will cast forth an arm to you, and I will scatter across your face the dung of your solemnities, and it will take you to itself.
2:4 And you will know that I sent you this commandment, so that my covenant might be with Levi, sier Herren, hærskarenes.
2:5 My covenant was with him for life and peace. And I gave him fear, and he feared me, and he was afraid before the face of my name.
2:6 The law of truth was in his mouth, and iniquity was not found on his lips. He walked with me in peace and integrity, and he turned away many from iniquity.
2:7 For the lips of the priests will keep knowledge, and they will request the law from his mouth, because he is an angel of the Lord of hosts.
2:8 But you have withdrawn from the way, and you have scandalized very many in the law. You have nullified the covenant of Levi, sier Herren, hærskarenes.
2:9 På grunn av dette, I also have made you contemptible and debased to all the people, just as you have not served my ways, and you have accepted a face in the law.
2:10 Is there not one Father of us all? Did not one God create us? Why, da, does each one of us despise his brother, violating the covenant of our fathers?
2:11 Judah has transgressed, and abomination has been committed in Israel and in Jerusalem. For Judah has contaminated the sanctified of the Lord, which he loved, and has held the daughter of a strange god.
2:12 The Lord will drive away the man who has done this, both the teacher and the disciple, from the tabernacles of Jacob and from those offering a gift to the Lord of hosts.
2:13 And you have done this repeatedly: you have covered the altar of the Lord with tears, with weeping and bellowing, to such an extent that I no longer have respect towards the sacrifice, nor do I accept any appeasement that is from your hands.
2:14 Og du har sagt, “What is the reason for this?” It is because the Lord has been a witness between you and the wife of your youth, whom you have despised. Yet she was your partner, and the wife of your covenant.
2:15 Did not One make her, and is she not the remainder of his spirit? And what does one seek, except offspring of God? Så da, preserve your spirit, and do not despise the wife of your youth.
2:16 If you would hold hatred, dismiss her, sier Herren, Israels Gud. But iniquity will cover his garment, sier Herren, hærskarenes. Preserve your spirit, and do not be willing to despise.
2:17 You have wearied the Lord with your speeches, og du har sagt, “In what way, have we wearied him?” In that you say, “Everyone who does evil is good in the sight of the Lord, and such as these please him,” or certainly, “Where is the God of judgment?"

Malaki 3

3:1 Skue, Jeg sender min engel, og han skal rydde vei for mitt åsyn. Og i dag, Israels, hvem du søker, og engel vitnesbyrd, som du ønsker, vil ankomme sitt tempel. Skue, han nærmer seg, sier Herren, hærskarenes.
3:2 Og som vil være i stand til å vurdere den dagen han advent, og som vil stå fast for å se ham? For han er som en raffinering brann, og liker fyldigere urt.
3:3 Og han skal sitte raffinering og rensing av sølv, og han vil rense Levis, og han vil samle dem som gull og som sølv, og de vil ofre til Herren i rettferdighet.
3:4 Og offer Juda og Jerusalem vil behage Herren, akkurat som i de dager tidligere generasjoner, og som i de gamle år.
3:5 And I will approach you in judgment, and I will be a swift witness against evil-doers, and adulterers, and perjurers, and those who cheat the hired hand in his wages, the widows and the orphans, and who oppress the traveler, and who have not feared me, sier Herren, hærskarenes.
3:6 For jeg er Herren, and I do not change. Og deg, the sons of Jacob, have not been consumed.
3:7 For, from the days of your fathers, you have withdrawn from my ordinances and have not kept them. Return to me, and I will return to you, sier Herren, hærskarenes. Og du har sagt, “In what way, shall we return?"
3:8 If a man will afflict God, then you greatly afflict me. Og du har sagt, “In what way, do we afflict you?” In tithes and in first-fruits.
3:9 And you have been cursed with privation, and you greatly afflict me, even your entire people.
3:10 Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, and let there be food in my house. And test me about this, sier Herren, as to whether I will not open to you the floodgates of heaven, and pour out to you a blessing, all the way to abundance.
3:11 And I will rebuke for your sakes the devourer, and he will not corrupt the fruit of your land. Neither will the vine in the field be barren, sier Herren, hærskarenes.
3:12 And all nations will call you blessed. For you will be a desirable land, sier Herren, hærskarenes.
3:13 Dine ord har samlet styrke over meg, sier Herren.
3:14 Og du har sagt, "Hva har vi talt mot deg?«Du har sagt, "Han strever forgjeves som tjener Gud,"Og, "Hvilken fordel er det at vi har holdt hans bud, og at vi har vandret sørgmodig i synet av Herren, hærskarenes Gud?
3:15 Derfor, vi nå kaller arrogant velsignet, som om de som jobber ugudelighet har blitt bygget opp, og som om de har fristet Gud og blitt frelst. "
3:16 Så de som frykter Herren talte, hver med sin neste. Og Herren betalt oppmerksomhet og akt. Og en minnebok ble skrevet i hans øyne, for dem som frykter Herren og for de som anser hans navn.
3:17 Og de vil være min spesiell eiendom, sier Herren, hærskarenes, den dagen jeg handle. Og jeg vil spare dem, akkurat som en mann sparer sin sønn som tjener ham.
3:18 Og du skal konverteres, og du vil se forskjellen mellom den rettferdige og den ugudelige, og mellom dem som tjener Gud, og de som ikke tjener ham.

Malaki 4

4:1 For, skue, den dagen kommer, opptent som en ovn, og all den arrogante og alle som opptrer impiously vil være som halm. Og den nærmer seg dagen vil glødende, sier Herren, hærskarenes; det vil etterlate for dem rot, heller ikke spire.
4:2 Men for dere, som frykter mitt navn, Solen av rettferdighet vil oppstå, og helse vil være i hans vinger. Og du skal gå ut og springe som kalver i flokken.
4:3 And you will trample the impious, while they will be ashes under the sole of your foot, den dagen jeg handle, sier Herren, hærskarenes.
4:4 Remember the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded him on Horeb for all Israel, the precepts and the judgments.
4:5 Skue, Jeg skal sende dere profeten Elia, før ankomsten av den store og forferdelige Herrens dag.
4:6 Og han vil snu fedrenes hjerte til sønnene, og hjertet av sønnene deres fedre, så jeg ikke skal komme og slå jorden med bannlyst.
