7 “From the days of your fathers you have turned aside from My statutes and have not kept them. Return to Me, and I will return to you,” says the Lord of hosts. “But you say, ‘How shall we return?’
You Have Robbed God
8 “Will a man [a]rob God? Yet you are robbing Me! But you say, ‘How have we robbed You?’ In tithes and [b]offerings.9 You are cursed with a curse, for you are [c]robbing Me, the whole nation of you!10 Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be [d]food in My house, and test Me now in this,” says the Lord of hosts, “if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you a blessing until [e]it overflows.11 Then I will rebuke the devourer for you, so that it will not [f]destroy the fruits of the ground; nor will your vine in the field cast its grapes,” says the Lord of hosts.12 “All the nations will call you blessed, for you shall be a delightful land,” says the Lord of hosts.
13 “Your words have been [g]arrogant against Me,” says the Lord. “Yet you say, ‘What have we spoken against You?’14 You have said, ‘It is vain to serve God; and what profit is it that we have kept His charge, and that we have walked in mourning before the Lord of hosts?15 So now we call the arrogant blessed; not only are the doers of wickedness built up but they also test God and escape.’”
