Commentary on
Malachi 2:10-17

Sin in the Family

2:10  Have we not all one father? hath not one Elohim created us? why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers?
2:11  Judah hath dealt treacherously, and an abomination is committed in Israel and in Jerusalem; for Judah hath profaned the holiness of Yehuveh which he loved, and hath married the daughter of a strange Elohim.
2:12  Yehuveh will cut off the man that doeth this, the master and the scholar, out of the tabernacles of Jacob, and him that offereth an offering unto Yehuveh of hosts.
2:13  And this have ye done again, covering the altar of Yehuveh with tears, with weeping, and with crying out, insomuch that he regardeth not the offering any more, or receiveth it with good will at your hand.
2:14  Yet ye say, Wherefore? Because Yehuveh hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt treacherously: yet is she thy companion, and the wife of thy covenant.
2:15  And did not he make one? Yet had he the residue of the spirit. And wherefore one? That he might seek a Elohimly seed. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth.
2:16  For Yehuveh, the Elohim of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away: for one covereth violence with his garment, saith Yehuveh of hosts: therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously.
2:17  Ye have wearied Yehuveh with your words. Yet ye say, Wherein have we wearied him? When ye say, Every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of Yehuveh, and he delighteth in them; or, Where is the Elohim of judgment?
