Malachi 1:2; Malachi 1:6-7

2 I have loved you, saith the LORD. Yet ye say , Wherein hast thou loved us? Was not Esau Jacob's brother? saith the LORD: yet I loved Jacob,
6 A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father, where is mine honour? and if I be a master, where is my fear? saith the LORD of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise my name. And ye say , Wherein have we despised thy name? 7 Ye offer polluted bread upon mine altar; and ye say , Wherein have we polluted thee? In that ye say , The table of the LORD is contemptible .
