11"Behold, I send 2my messenger, and 3he will prepare the way before me. And the Lord 4whom you seek will suddenly come to his temple; and 5the messenger of the covenant in whom you delight, behold, he is coming, says the LORD of hosts.
"Then I will draw near to you for judgment. I will be 11a swift witness against the sorcerers, against the adulterers, against those who swear falsely, against those 12who oppress the hired worker in his wages, 13the widow and the fatherless, against those who thrust aside the sojourner, and do not fear me, says the LORD of hosts.
1022Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby 23put me to the test, says the LORD of hosts, if I will not open 24the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need.
Then those who feared the LORD 35 spoke with one another. The LORD paid attention and heard them, and 36a book of remembrance was written before him of those who feared the LORD and esteemed his name.
