|9 Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation||5 And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me, saith the LORD of hosts|
|7 Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them||But ye said, Wherein shall we return? 16 Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name|
2 But who may abide the day of his coming? 15 And now we call the proud happy; yea, they that work wickedness are set up; yea, they that tempt God are even delivered.
|3 And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness||and who shall stand when he appeareth? 10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it|
