Malachi 3 Text (WEB)
  1. "Behold, I send my messenger, and he will prepare the way before me; and the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to his temple; and the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, behold, he comes!" says Yahweh of Armies.
  2. "But who can endure the day of his coming? And who will stand when he appears? For he is like a refiner's fire, and like launderer's soap;
  3. and he will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and he will purify the sons of Levi, and refine them as gold and silver; and they shall offer to Yahweh offerings in righteousness.
  4. Then the offering of Judah and Jerusalem will be pleasant to Yahweh, as in the days of old, and as in ancient years.
  5. I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against the perjurers, and against those who oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and who deprive the foreigner of justice, and don't fear me," says Yahweh of Armies.
  6. "For I, Yahweh, don't change; therefore you, sons of Jacob, are not consumed.
  7. From the days of your fathers you have turned aside from my ordinances, and have not kept them. Return to me, and I will return to you," says Yahweh of Armies. "But you say, 'How shall we return?'
  8. Will a man rob God? Yet you rob me! But you say, 'How have we robbed you?' In tithes and offerings.
  9. You are cursed with the curse; for you rob me, even this whole nation.
  10. Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house, and test me now in this," says Yahweh of Armies, "if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough for.
  11. I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast its fruit before its time in the field," says Yahweh of Armies.
  12. "All nations shall call you blessed, for you will be a delightful land," says Yahweh of Armies.
  13. "Your words have been stout against me," says Yahweh. "Yet you say, 'What have we spoken against you?'
  14. You have said, 'It is vain to serve God;' and 'What profit is it that we have followed his instructions, and that we have walked mournfully before Yahweh of Armies?
  15. Now we call the proud happy; yes, those who work wickedness are built up; yes, they tempt God, and escape.'
  16. Then those who feared Yahweh spoke one with another; and Yahweh listened, and heard, and a book of memory was written before him, for those who feared Yahweh, and who honored his name.
  17. They shall be mine," says Yahweh of Armies, "my own possession in the day that I make, and I will spare them, as a man spares his own son who serves him.
  18. Then you shall return and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him who serves God and him who doesn't serve him.
Malachi 3 Text (Hebrew)
  1. הנני שלח מלאכי ופנה־דרך לפני ופתאם יבוא אל־היכלו האדון אשר־אתם מבקשים ומלאך הברית אשר־אתם חפצים הנה־בא אמר יהוה צבאות׃
  2. ומי מכלכל את־יום בואו ומי העמד בהראותו כי־הוא כאש מצרף וכברית מכבסים׃
  3. וישב מצרף ומטהר כסף וטהר את־בני־לוי וזקק אתם כזהב וככסף והיו ליהוה מגישי מנחה בצדקה׃
  4. וערבה ליהוה מנחת יהודה וירושלם כימי עולם וכשנים קדמניות׃
  5. וקרבתי אליכם למשפט והייתי עד ממהר במכשפים ובמנאפים ובנשבעים לשקר ובעשקי שכר־שכיר אלמנה ויתום ומטי־גר ולא יראוני אמר יהוה צבאות׃
  6. כי אני יהוה לא שניתי ואתם בני־יעקב לא כליתם׃
  7. למימי אבתיכם סרתם מחקי ולא שמרתם שובו אלי ואשובה אליכם אמר יהוה צבאות ואמרתם במה נשוב׃
  8. היקבע אדם אלהים כי אתם קבעים אתי ואמרתם במה קבענוך המעשר והתרומה׃
  9. במארה אתם נארים ואתי אתם קבעים הגוי כלו׃
  10. הביאו את־כל־המעשר אל־בית האוצר ויהי טרף בביתי ובחנוני נא בזאת אמר יהוה צבאות אם־לא אפתח לכם את ארבות השמים והריקתי לכם ברכה עד־בלי־די׃
  11. וגערתי לכם באכל ולא־ישחת לכם את־פרי האדמה ולא־תשכל לכם הגפן בשדה אמר יהוה צבאות׃
  12. ואשרו אתכם כל־הגוים כי־תהיו אתם ארץ חפץ אמר יהוה צבאות׃ ס
  13. חזקו עלי דבריכם אמר יהוה ואמרתם מה־נדברנו עליך׃
  14. אמרתם שוא עבד אלהים ומה־בצע כי שמרנו משמרתו וכי הלכנו קדרנית מפני יהוה צבאות׃
  15. ועתה אנחנו מאשרים זדים גם־נבנו עשי רשעה גם בחנו אלהים וימלטו׃
  16. אז נדברו יראי יהוה איש את־רעהו ויקשב יהוה וישמע ויכתב ספר זכרון לפניו ליראי יהוה ולחשבי שמו׃
  17. והיו לי אמר יהוה צבאות ליום אשר אני עשה סגלה וחמלתי עליהם כאשר יחמל איש על־בנו העבד אתו׃
  18. ושבתם וראיתם בין צדיק לרשע בין עבד אלהים לאשר לא עבדו׃ ס

  3. και καθιειται χωνευων και καθαριζων ως το αργυριον και ως το χρυσιον και καθαρισει τους υιους λευι και χεει αυτους ως το χρυσιον και ως το αργυριον και εσονται τω κυριω προσαγοντες θυσιαν εν

  8. ει πτερνιει ανθρωπος θεον διοτι υμεις πτερνιζετε με και ερειτε εν τινι επτερνικαμεν σε οτι τα επιδεκατα και αι απαρχαι μεθ' υμων
  9. και αποβλεποντες υμεις αποβλεπετε και εμε υμεις πτερνιζετε το εθνος

  17. και εσονται μοι λεγει κυριος παντοκρατωρ εις ημεραν ην εγω ποιω εις περιποιησιν και αιρετιω αυτους ον τροπον αιρετιζει ανθρωπος τον υιον αυτου τον δουλευοντα
  18. και επιστραφησεσθε και οψεσθε ανα μεσον δικαιου και ανα μεσον ανομου και ανα μεσον του δουλευοντος θεω και του μη
Malachi 3 Text (Latin)
  1. Ecce ego mittam angelum meum, et præparabit viam ante faciem meam : et statim veniet ad templum suum Dominator quem vos quæritis, et angelus testamenti quem vos vultis. Ecce venit, dicit Dominus exercituum.
  2. Et quis poterit cogitare diem adventus ejus, et quis stabit ad videndum eum ? ipse enim quasi ignis conflans, et quasi herba fullonum :
  3. et sedebit conflans, et emundans argentum : et purgabit filios Levi, et colabit eos quasi aurum et quasi argentum, et erunt Domino offerentes sacrificia in justitia.
  4. Et placebit Domino sacrificium Juda et Jerusalem, sicut dies sæculi, et sicut anni antiqui.
  5. Et accedam ad vos in judicio, et ero testis velox maleficis, et adulteris, et perjuris, et qui calumniantur mercedem mercenarii, viduas et pupillos, et opprimunt peregrinum, nec timuerunt me, dicit Dominus exercituum.
  6. Ego enim Dominus, et non mutor : et vos filii Jacob, non estis consumpti.
  7. A diebus enim patrum vestrorum recessistis a legitimis meis, et non custodistis : revertimini ad me, et revertar ad vos, dicit Dominus exercituum. Et dixistis : In quo revertemur ?
  8. Si affliget homo Deum, quia vos configitis me ? Et dixistis : In quo configimus te ? In decimis et in primitiis.
  9. Et in penuria vos maledicti estis, et me vos configitis gens tota.
  10. Inferte omnem decimam in horreum, et sit cibus in domo mea : et probate me super hoc, dicit Dominus : si non aperuero vobis cataractas cæli, et effudero vobis benedictionem usque ad abundantiam :
  11. et increpabo pro vobis devorantem, et non corrumpet fructum terræ vestræ, nec erit sterilis vinea in agro, dicit Dominus exercituum.
  12. Et beatos vos dicent omnes gentes : eritis enim vos terra desiderabilis, dicit Dominus exercituum.
  13. Invaluerunt super me verba vestra, dicit Dominus.
  14. Et dixistis : Quid locuti sumus contra te ? Dixistis : Vanus est qui servit Deo : et quod emolumentum quia custodivimus præcepta ejus, et quia ambulavimus tristes coram Domino exercituum ?
  15. Ergo nunc beatos dicimus arrogantes : siquidem ædificati sunt facientes impietatem, et tentaverunt Deum, et salvi facti sunt.
  16. Tunc locuti sunt timentes Dominum, unusquisque cum proximo suo : et attendit Dominus, et audivit, et scriptus est liber monumenti coram eo timentibus Dominum, et cogitantibus nomen ejus.
  17. Et erunt mihi, ait Dominus exercituum, in die qua ego facio, in peculium : et parcam eis, sicut parcit vir filio suo servienti sibi.
  18. Et convertemini, et videbitis quid sit inter justum et impium, et inter servientem Deo et non servientem ei.
Malachi 3 Text (KJV)
  1. Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to this temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.
  2. But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap:
  3. And he shall sit as a refiner and purifer 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.
  4. Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the LORD, as in the days of old, and as in former years.
  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.
  6. For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.
  7. Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them. Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the LORD of hosts. But ye said, Wherein shall we return?
  8. Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.
  9. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation.
  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.
  11. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts.
  12. And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of hosts.
  13. Your words have been stout against me, saith the LORD. Yet ye say, What have we spoken so much against thee?
  14. Ye have said, It is vain to serve God: and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the LORD of hosts?
  15. And now we call the proud happy; yea, they that work wickedness are set up; yea, they that tempt God are even delivered.
  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.
  17. And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.
  18. Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.
