1 "And now, O ye priests, this commandment is for you. 2 If ye will not hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart to give glory unto My name," saith the LORD of hosts, "I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings. Yea, I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay it to heart. 3 Behold, I will corrupt your seed and spread dung upon your faces, even the dung of your solemn feasts; and one shall take you away with it. 4 And ye shall know that I have sent this commandment unto you, that My covenant might be with Levi," saith the LORD of hosts. 5 "My covenant was with him of life and peace, and I gave them to him for the fear with which he feared Me and was afraid before My name. 6 The law of truth was in his mouth, and iniquity was not found on his lips. He walked with Me in peace and equity, and turned many away from iniquity. 7 For the priest's lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth; for he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts. 8 But ye have departed from the way; ye have caused many to stumble at the law; ye have corrupted the covenant of Levi," saith the LORD of hosts. 9 "Therefore have I also made you contemptible and base before all the people, according as ye have not kept My ways but have been partial in the law."
