Malachi Chapter 1 מַלְאָכִי

Malachi Chapter 1 מַלְאָכִי

א  מַשָּׂא דְבַר-יְהוָה, אֶל-יִשְׂרָאֵל, בְּיַד, מַלְאָכִי. 1 The burden of the word of the LORD to Israel by Malachi.
ב  אָהַבְתִּי אֶתְכֶם אָמַר יְהוָה, וַאֲמַרְתֶּם בַּמָּה אֲהַבְתָּנוּ; הֲלוֹא-אָח עֵשָׂו לְיַעֲקֹב נְאֻם-יְהוָה, וָאֹהַב אֶת-יַעֲקֹב. 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;
ג  וְאֶת-עֵשָׂו, שָׂנֵאתִי; וָאָשִׂים אֶת-הָרָיו שְׁמָמָה, וְאֶת-נַחֲלָתוֹ לְתַנּוֹת מִדְבָּר. 3 But Esau I hated, and made his mountains a desolation, and gave his heritage to the jackals of the wilderness.
ד  כִּי-תֹאמַר אֱדוֹם רֻשַּׁשְׁנוּ, וְנָשׁוּב וְנִבְנֶה חֳרָבוֹת–כֹּה אָמַר יְהוָה צְבָאוֹת, הֵמָּה יִבְנוּ וַאֲנִי אֶהֱרוֹס; וְקָרְאוּ לָהֶם גְּבוּל רִשְׁעָה, וְהָעָם אֲשֶׁר-זָעַם יְהוָה עַד-עוֹלָם. 4 Whereas Edom saith: ‘We are beaten down, but we will return and build the waste places’; thus saith the LORD of hosts: They shall build, but I will throw down; and they shall be called the border of wickedness, and the people whom the LORD execrateth for ever.
ה  וְעֵינֵיכֶם, תִּרְאֶינָה; וְאַתֶּם תֹּאמְרוּ יִגְדַּל יְהוָה, מֵעַל לִגְבוּל יִשְׂרָאֵל. 5 And your eyes shall see, and ye shall say: ‘The LORD is great beyond the border of Israel.’
ו  בֵּן יְכַבֵּד אָב, וְעֶבֶד אֲדֹנָיו; וְאִם-אָב אָנִי אַיֵּה כְבוֹדִי וְאִם-אֲדוֹנִים אָנִי אַיֵּה מוֹרָאִי אָמַר יְהוָה צְבָאוֹת, לָכֶם הַכֹּהֲנִים בּוֹזֵי שְׁמִי, וַאֲמַרְתֶּם, בַּמֶּה בָזִינוּ אֶת-שְׁמֶךָ. 6 A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master; if then I be a father, where is My 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?’
ז  מַגִּישִׁים עַל-מִזְבְּחִי לֶחֶם מְגֹאָל, וַאֲמַרְתֶּם בַּמֶּה גֵאַלְנוּךָ; בֶּאֱמָרְכֶם, שֻׁלְחַן יְהוָה נִבְזֶה הוּא. 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.’
ח  וְכִי-תַגִּישׁוּן עִוֵּר לִזְבֹּחַ אֵין רָע, וְכִי תַגִּישׁוּ פִּסֵּחַ וְחֹלֶה אֵין רָע; הַקְרִיבֵהוּ נָא לְפֶחָתֶךָ, הֲיִרְצְךָ אוֹ הֲיִשָּׂא פָנֶיךָ–אָמַר, יְהוָה צְבָאוֹת. 8 And when ye offer the blind for sacrifice, is it no evil! And when ye offer the lame and sick, is it no evil! Present it now unto thy governor; will he be pleased with thee? or will he accept thy person? saith the LORD of hosts.
ט  וְעַתָּה חַלּוּ-נָא פְנֵי-אֵל, וִיחָנֵּנוּ; מִיֶּדְכֶם, הָיְתָה זֹּאת–הֲיִשָּׂא מִכֶּם פָּנִים, אָמַר יְהוָה צְבָאוֹת. 9 And now, I pray you, entreat the favour of God that He may be gracious unto us!–this hath been of your doing.–will He accept any of your persons? saith the LORD of hosts.
י  מִי גַם-בָּכֶם וְיִסְגֹּר דְּלָתַיִם, וְלֹא-תָאִירוּ מִזְבְּחִי חִנָּם; אֵין-לִי חֵפֶץ בָּכֶם, אָמַר יְהוָה צְבָאוֹת, וּמִנְחָה, לֹא-אֶרְצֶה מִיֶּדְכֶם. 10 Oh that there were even one among you that would shut the doors, that ye might not kindle fire on Mine altar in vain! I have no pleasure in you, saith the LORD of hosts, neither will I accept an offering at your hand.
יא  כִּי מִמִּזְרַח-שֶׁמֶשׁ וְעַד-מְבוֹאוֹ, גָּדוֹל שְׁמִי בַּגּוֹיִם, וּבְכָל-מָקוֹם מֻקְטָר מֻגָּשׁ לִשְׁמִי, וּמִנְחָה טְהוֹרָה:  כִּי-גָדוֹל שְׁמִי בַּגּוֹיִם, אָמַר יְהוָה צְבָאוֹת. 11 For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same My name is great among the nations; and in every place offerings are presented unto My name, even pure oblations; for My name is great among the nations, saith the LORD of hosts.
יב  וְאַתֶּם, מְחַלְּלִים אוֹתוֹ–בֶּאֱמָרְכֶם, שֻׁלְחַן אֲדֹנָי מְגֹאָל הוּא, וְנִיבוֹ, נִבְזֶה אָכְלוֹ. 12 But ye profane it, in that ye say: ‘The table of the LORD is polluted, and the fruit thereof, even the food thereof, is contemptible.’
יג  וַאֲמַרְתֶּם הִנֵּה מַתְּלָאָה וְהִפַּחְתֶּם אוֹתוֹ, אָמַר יְהוָה צְבָאוֹת, וַהֲבֵאתֶם גָּזוּל וְאֶת-הַפִּסֵּחַ וְאֶת-הַחוֹלֶה, וַהֲבֵאתֶם אֶת-הַמִּנְחָה; הַאֶרְצֶה אוֹתָהּ מִיֶּדְכֶם, אָמַר יְהוָה.  {ס} 13 Ye say also: ‘Behold, what a weariness is it!’ and ye have snuffed at it, saith the LORD of hosts; and ye have brought that which was taken by violence, and the lame, and the sick; thus ye bring the offering; should I accept this of your hand? saith the LORD. {S}
יד  וְאָרוּר נוֹכֵל, וְיֵשׁ בְּעֶדְרוֹ זָכָר, וְנֹדֵר וְזֹבֵחַ מָשְׁחָת, לַאדֹנָי:  כִּי מֶלֶךְ גָּדוֹל אָנִי, אָמַר יְהוָה צְבָאוֹת, וּשְׁמִי, נוֹרָא בַגּוֹיִם. 14 But cursed be he that dealeth craftily, whereas he hath in his flock a male, and voweth, and sacrificeth unto the Lord a blemished thing; for I am a great King, saith the LORD of hosts, and My name is feared among the nations.

DAILY SCRIPTURES

Reading 1 Zep 3:1-2, 9-13

Thus says the LORD:
Woe to the city, rebellious and polluted,
to the tyrannical city!
She hears no voice,
accepts no correction;
In the LORD she has not trusted,
to her God she has not drawn near.

For then I will change and purify
the lips of the peoples,
That they all may call upon the name of the LORD,
to serve him with one accord;
From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia
and as far as the recesses of the North,
they shall bring me offerings.

On that day
You need not be ashamed
of all your deeds,
your rebellious actions against me;
For then will I remove from your midst
the proud braggarts,
And you shall no longer exalt yourself
on my holy mountain.
But I will leave as a remnant in your midst
a people humble and lowly,
Who shall take refuge in the name of the LORD:
the remnant of Israel.
They shall do no wrong
and speak no lies;
Nor shall there be found in their mouths
a deceitful tongue;
They shall pasture and couch their flocks
with none to disturb them.

Responsorial Psalm Ps 34:2-3, 6-7, 17-18, 19 and 23

R. (7a) The Lord hears the cry of the poor.
I will bless the LORD at all times;
his praise shall be ever in my mouth.
Let my soul glory in the LORD;
the lowly will hear me and be glad.
R. The Lord hears the cry of the poor.
Look to him that you may be radiant with joy,
and your faces may not blush with shame.
When the poor one called out, the LORD heard,
and from all his distress he saved him.
R. The Lord hears the cry of the poor.
The LORD confronts the evildoers,
to destroy remembrance of them from the earth.
When the just cry out, the LORD hears them,
and from all their distress he rescues them.
R. The Lord hears the cry of the poor.
The LORD is close to the brokenhearted;
and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.
The LORD redeems the lives of his servants;
no one incurs guilt who takes refuge in him.
R. The Lord hears the cry of the poor.

Gospel Mt 21:28-32

Jesus said to the chief priests and the elders of the people:
“What is your opinion?
A man had two sons.
He came to the first and said,
‘Son, go out and work in the vineyard today.’
The son said in reply, ‘I will not,’
but afterwards he changed his mind and went.
The man came to the other son and gave the same order.
He said in reply, ‘Yes, sir,’ but did not go.
Which of the two did his father’s will?”
They answered, “The first.”
Jesus said to them, “Amen, I say to you,
tax collectors and prostitutes
are entering the Kingdom of God before you.
When John came to you in the way of righteousness,
you did not believe him;
but tax collectors and prostitutes did.
Yet even when you saw that,
you did not later change your minds and believe him.”
