Malachi 3:14-16 Common English Bible (CEB)
14 You said,
“Serving God is useless.
What do we gain by keeping his obligation
or by walking around as mourners
before the Lord of heavenly forces?
15 So now we consider the arrogant fortunate.
Moreover, those doing evil are built up;
they test God and escape.”
The scroll of remembrance
16 Then those revering the Lord,
each and every one, spoke among themselves.
The Lord paid attention and listened to them.
Then a scroll of remembrance was written before the Lord
about those revering the Lord,
the ones meditating on his name.
