Will man rob God? Yet you are robbing me. But you say, 'How are we robbing thee?' In your tithes and offerings.
You are cursed with a curse, for you are robbing me; the whole nation of you.
Bring the full tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house; and thereby put me to the test, says the LORD of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you an overflowing blessing.
I will rebuke the devourer for you, so that it will not destroy the fruits of your soil; and your vine in the field shall not fail to bear, says the LORD of hosts.
