Malachi

Malachi 1

1:1 The burden of the word of the Lord to Israel by the hand of Malachi.
1:2 Ndakakudai, ndizvo zvinotaura Ishe, uye imi makati, “In what way have you loved us?” Was not Esau brother to Jacob, ndizvo zvinotaura Ishe? 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,"uye, “The people with whom the Lord has been angry, even to eternity.”
1:5 And your eyes will see. Uye iwe uchati, “May the Lord be magnified beyond the limits of Israel.”
1:6 The son honors the father, and the servant his master. kana, saka, 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. Uye imi makati, “In what way, have we despised your name?"
1:7 You offer polluted bread upon my altar, uye imi munoti, “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, ndizvo zvinotaura Jehovha wehondo.
1:9 Saka zvino, beseech the face of God, so that he may have mercy on you (for by your hand has this been done) kana, in any way, he might accept your faces, ndizvo zvinotaura Jehovha wehondo.
1:10 Who is there among you that would close the doors and enflame my altar without pay? I have no favor in you, ndizvo zvinotaura Jehovha wehondo. 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, ndizvo zvinotaura Jehovha wehondo.
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 Uye imi makati, “Behold our labor,” and you have exhaled it away, ndizvo zvinotaura Jehovha wehondo. 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, ndizvo zvinotaura Ishe?
1:14 Cursed is the deceitful, who holds in his flock a male, uye, when making a vow, offers in sacrifice that which is feeble to the Lord. For I am a great King, ndizvo zvinotaura Jehovha wehondo, and my name is dreadful among the Gentiles.

Malachi 2

2:1 Saka zvino, 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, ndizvo zvinotaura Jehovha wehondo, 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 tarirai, 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, ndizvo zvinotaura Jehovha wehondo.
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, ndizvo zvinotaura Jehovha wehondo.
2:9 Nokuda kwaizvozvi, 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, ndokubva, 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 Uye imi makati, “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? Naizvozvo, preserve your spirit, and do not despise the wife of your youth.
2:16 If you would hold hatred, dismiss her, ndizvo zvinotaura Ishe, Mwari waIsraeri. But iniquity will cover his garment, ndizvo zvinotaura Jehovha wehondo. Preserve your spirit, and do not be willing to despise.
2:17 You have wearied the Lord with your speeches, uye imi makati, “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?"
