    3:1 Behold, I will send 7971 8802 my messenger 4397, and he shall prepare 6437 8765 the way 1870 before 6440 me: and the Lord 113, whom ye seek 1245 8764, shall suddenly 6597 come 935 8799 to his temple 1964, even the messenger 4397 of the covenant 1285, whom ye delight 2655 in: behold, he shall come 935 8804, saith 559 8804 the LORD 3068 of hosts 6635.

    3:2 But who may abide 3557 8772 the day 3117 of his coming 935 8800? and who shall stand 5975 8802 when he appeareth 7200 8736? for he [is] like a refiner's 6884 8764 fire 784, and like fullers' 3526 8764 soap 1287:

    3:3 And he shall sit 3427 8804 [as] a refiner 6884 8764 and purifier 2891 8764 of silver 3701: and he shall purify 2891 8765 the sons 1121 of Levi 3878, and purge 2212 8765 them as gold 2091 and silver 3701, that they may offer 5066 8688 unto the LORD 3068 an offering 4503 in righteousness 6666.

    3:4 Then shall the offering 4503 of Judah 3063 and Jerusalem 3389 be pleasant 6149 8804 unto the LORD 3068, as in the days 3117 of old 5769, and as in former 6931 years 8141.(former: or, ancient)

    3:5 And I will come near 7126 8804 to you to judgment 4941; and I will be a swift 4116 8764 witness 5707 against the sorcerers 3784 8764, and against the adulterers 5003 8764, and against false 8267 swearers 7650 8737, and against those that oppress 6231 8802 the hireling 7916 in [his] wages 7939, the widow 490, and the fatherless 3490, and that turn aside 5186 8688 the stranger 1616 [from his right], and fear 3372 8804 not me, saith 559 8804 the LORD 3068 of hosts 6635.(oppress: or, defraud)

    3:6 For I [am] the LORD 3068, I change 8138 8804 not; therefore ye sons 1121 of Jacob 3290 are not consumed 3615 8804.

    3:7 Even from the days 3117 of your fathers 1 ye are gone away 5493 8804 from mine ordinances 2706, and have not kept 8104 8804 [them]. Return 7725 8798 unto me, and I will return 7725 8799 unto you, saith 559 8804 the LORD 3068 of hosts 6635. But ye said 559 8804, Wherein shall we return 7725 8799?

    3:8 Will a man 120 rob 6906 8799 God 430? Yet ye have robbed 6906 8802 me. But ye say 559 8804, Wherein have we robbed 6906 8804 thee? In tithes 4643 and offerings 8641.

    3:9 Ye [are] cursed 779 8737 with a curse 3994: for ye have robbed 6906 8802 me, [even] this whole nation 1471.

    3:10 Bring 935 8685 ye all the tithes 4643 into the storehouse 214, that there may be meat 2964 in mine house 1004, and prove 974 8798 me now herewith 2063, saith 559 8804 the LORD 3068 of hosts 6635, if I will not open 6605 8799 you the windows 699 of heaven 8064, and pour you out 7324 8689 a blessing 1293, that [there shall] not [be room] enough 1767 [to receive it].(pourů: Heb. empty out)

    3:11 And I will rebuke 1605 8804 the devourer 398 8802 for your sakes, and he shall not destroy 7843 8686 the fruits 6529 of your ground 127; neither shall your vine 1612 cast her fruit 7921 8762 before the time in the field 7704, saith 559 8804 the LORD 3068 of hosts 6635.(destroy: Heb. corrupt)

    3:12 And all nations 1471 shall call you blessed 833 8765: for ye shall be a delightsome 2656 land 776, saith 559 8804 the LORD 3068 of hosts 6635.

    3:13 Your words 1697 have been stout 2388 8804 against me, saith 559 8804 the LORD 3068. Yet ye say 559 8804, What have we spoken 1696 8738 [so much] against thee?

    3:14 Ye have said 559 8804, It [is] vain 7723 to serve 5647 8800 God 430: and what profit 1215 [is it] that we have kept 8104 8804 his ordinance 4931, and that we have walked 1980 8804 mournfully 6941 before 6440 the LORD 3068 of hosts 6635?(ordinance: Heb. observation)(mournfully: Heb. in black)

    3:15 And now we call 833 0 the proud 2086 happy 833 8764; yea, they that work 6213 8802 wickedness 7564 are set up 1129 8738; yea, [they that] tempt 974 8804 God 430 are even delivered 4422 8735.(are set up: Heb. are built)

    3:16 Then they that feared 3373 the LORD 3068 spake often 1696 8738 one 376 to another 7453: and the LORD 3068 hearkened 7181 8686, and heard 8085 8799 [it], and a book 5612 of remembrance 2146 was written 3789 8735 before 6440 him for them that feared 3373 the LORD 3068, and that thought 2803 8802 upon his name 8034.

    3:17 And they shall be mine, saith 559 8804 the LORD 3068 of hosts 6635, in that day 3117 when I make up 6213 8802 my jewels 5459; and I will spare 2550 8804 them, as a man 376 spareth 2550 8799 his own son 1121 that serveth 5647 8802 him.(jewels: or, special treasure)

    3:18 Then shall ye return 7725 8804, and discern 7200 8804 between the righteous 6662 and the wicked 7563, between him that serveth 5647 8802 God 430 and him that serveth 5647 8804 him not.
