Malachi 1:6; Malachi 2:1; Malachi 2:7
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?
And now, O ye priests, this commandment is for you.
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.
