Malachi 1:1-14
1. The burden of a word of Jehovah unto Israel by the hand of Malachi:
2. I have loved you, said Jehovah, And ye have said, `In what hast Thou loved us?`
3. Is not Esau Jacob`s brother? -- an affirmation of Jehovah, And I love Jacob, and Esau I have hated, And I make his mountains a desolation, And his inheritance for dragons of a wilderness.
4. Because Edom saith, `We have been made poor, And we turn back and we build the wastes,` Thus said Jehovah of Hosts: They do build, and I do destroy, And [men] have called to them, `O region of wickedness,` `O people whom Jehovah defied to the age.`
5. And your eyes do see, and ye say, `Magnified is Jehovah beyond the border of Israel,
6. A son honoureth a father, and a servant his master. And if I [am] a father, where [is] Mine honour? And if I [am] a master, where [is] My fear? Said Jehovah of Hosts to you, O priests, despising My name! And ye have said: `In what have we despised Thy name?`
7. Ye are bringing nigh on Mine altar polluted bread, And ye have said: `In what have we polluted Thee?` In your saying: `The table of Jehovah -- it [is] despicable,`
8. And when ye bring nigh the blind for sacrifice, `There is no evil,` And when ye bring nigh the lame and sick, `There is no evil;` Bring it near, I pray thee, to thy governor -- Doth he accept thee? or doth he lift up thy face? Said Jehovah of Hosts.
9. And now, appease, I pray thee, the face of God, And He doth favour us; From your own hand hath this been, Doth He accept of you appearances? Said Jehovah of Hosts.
10. Who [is] even among you, And he shutteth the two-leaved doors? Yea, ye do not kindle Mine altar for nought, I have no pleasure in you, said Jehovah of Hosts, And a present I do not accept of your hand.
11. For, from the rising of the sun to its going in, Great [is] My name among nations, And in every place perfume is brought nigh to My name, and a pure present, For great [is] My name among nations, Said Jehovah of Hosts.
12. And ye are polluting it in your saying, `The table of Jehovah -- it is polluted, As to its fruit -- despicable is its food.`
13. And ye have said, `Lo, what a weariness,` And ye have puffed at it, said Jehovah of Hosts, And ye have brought in plunder, And the lame and the sick, And ye have brought in the present! Do I accept it from your hand? said Jehovah.
14. And cursed [is] a deceiver, who hath in his drove a male, And is vowing, and is sacrificing a marred thing to the Lord, For a great king [am] I, said Jehovah of Hosts, And My name [is] revered among nations!

Malachi 2:1-17
1. And now, to you [is] this charge, O priests,
2. If ye hearken not, and if ye lay [it] not to heart, To give honour to My name, said Jehovah of Hosts, I have sent against you the curse, And I have cursed your blessings, Yea, I have also cursed it, Because ye are not laying [it] to heart.
3. Lo, I am pushing away before you the seed, And have scattered dung before your faces, Dung of your festivals, And it hath taken you away with it.
4. And ye have known that I have sent unto you this charge, For My covenant being with Levi, Said Jehovah of Hosts.
5. My covenant hath been with him of life and of peace, And I make them to him a fear, and he doth fear Me, And because of My name he hath been affrighted.
6. The law of truth hath been in his mouth, And perverseness hath not been found in his lips, In peace and in uprightness he walked with Me, And many he brought back from iniquity.
7. For the lips of a priest preserve knowledge, And law they do seek from his mouth, For a messenger of Jehovah of Hosts he [is].
8. And ye, ye have turned from the way, Ye have caused many to stumble in the law, Ye have corrupted the covenant of Levi, Said Jehovah of Hosts.
9. And I also, I have made you despised and low before all the people, Because ye are not keeping My ways, And are accepting persons in the law.
10. Have we not all one father? Hath not our God prepared us? Wherefore do we deal treacherously, Each against his brother, To pollute the covenant of our fathers?
11. Dealt treacherously hath Judah, And abomination hath been done in Israel, and in Jerusalem, For polluted hath Judah the holy thing of Jehovah, That He hath loved, and hath married the daughter of a strange god.
12. Cut off doth Jehovah the man who doth it, Tempter and tempted -- from the tents of Jacob, Even he who is bringing nigh a present to Jehovah of Hosts.
13. And this a second time ye do, Covering with tears the altar of Jehovah, With weeping and groaning, Because there is no more turning unto the present, Or receiving of a pleasing thing from your hand.
14. And ye have said, `Wherefore?` Because Jehovah hath testified between thee And the wife of thy youth, That thou hast dealt treacherously against her, And she thy companion, and thy covenant-wife.
15. And He did not make one [only], And He hath the remnant of the Spirit. And what [is] the one [alone]! He is seeking a godly seed. And ye have been watchful over your spirit, And with the wife of thy youth, None doth deal treacherously.
16. For [I] hate sending away, said Jehovah, God of Israel, And He [who] hath covered violence with his clothing, said Jehovah of Hosts, And ye have been watchful over your spirit, And ye do not deal treacherously.
17. Ye have wearied Jehovah with your words, And ye have said: `In what have we wearied Him?` In your saying: `Every evil-doer [is] good in the eyes of Jehovah, And in them He is delighting,` Or, `Where [is] the God of judgment?`

Malachi 3:1-18
1. Lo, I am sending My messenger, And he hath prepared a way before Me, And suddenly come in unto his temple Doth the Lord whom ye are seeking, Even the messenger of the covenant, Whom ye are desiring, Lo, he is coming, said Jehovah of Hosts.
2. And who is bearing the day of his coming? And who is standing in his appearing? For he [is] as fire of a refiner, And as soap of a fuller.
3. And he hath sat, a refiner and purifier of silver, And he hath purified the sons of Levi, And hath refined them as gold and as silver, And they have been to Jehovah bringing nigh a present in righteousness.
4. And sweet to Jehovah hath been the present of Judah and Jerusalem, As in days of old, and as in former years.
5. And I have drawn near to you for judgment, And I have been a witness, Making haste against sorcerers, And against adulterers, And against swearers to a falsehood, And against oppressors of the hire of an hireling, Of a widow, and of a fatherless one, And those turning aside a sojourner, And who fear Me not, said Jehovah of Hosts.
6. For I [am] Jehovah, I have not changed, And ye, the sons of Jacob, Ye have not been consumed.
7. Even from the days of your fathers Ye have turned aside from My statutes, And ye have not taken heed. Turn back unto Me, and I turn back to you, Said Jehovah of Hosts. And ye have said, `In what do we turn back?`
8. Doth man deceive God? but ye are deceiving Me, And ye have said: `In what have we deceived Thee?` The tithe and the heave-offering!
9. With a curse ye are cursed! And Me ye are deceiving -- this nation -- all of it.
10. Bring in all the tithe unto the treasure-house, And there is food in My house; When ye have tried Me, now, with this, Said Jehovah of Hosts, Do not I open to you the windows of heaven? Yea, I have emptied on you a blessing till there is no space.
11. And I have pushed for you against the consumer, And He doth not destroy to you the fruit of the ground, Nor miscarry to you doth the vine in the field, Said Jehovah of Hosts.
12. And declared you happy have all the nations, For ye are a delightful land, said Jehovah of Hosts.
13. Hard against Me have been your words, Said Jehovah, and ye have said: `What have we spoken against Thee?`
14. Ye have said, `A vain thing to serve God! And what gain when we kept His charge? And when we have gone in black, Because of Jehovah of Hosts?
15. And now, we are declaring the proud happy, Yea, built up have been those doing wickedness, Yea they have tempted God, and escape.`
16. Then have those fearing Jehovah spoken one to another, And Jehovah doth attend and hear, And written is a book of memorial before Him Of those fearing Jehovah, And of those esteeming His name.
17. And they have been to Me, said Jehovah of Hosts, In the day that I am appointing -- a peculiar treasure, And I have had pity on them, As one hath pity on his son who is serving him.
18. And ye have turned back and considered, Between the righteous and the wicked, Between the servant of God and him who is not His servant.

Malachi 4:1-6
1. For, lo, the day hath come, burning as a furnace, And all the proud, and every wicked doer, have been stubble, And burnt them hath the day that came, Said Jehovah of Hosts, That there is not left to them root or branch,
2. And risen to you, ye who fear My name, Hath the sun of righteousness -- and healing in its wings, And ye have gone forth, and have increased as calves of a stall.
3. And ye have trodden down the wicked, For they are ashes under the soles of your feet, In the day that I am appointing, Said Jehovah of Hosts.
4. Remember ye the law of Moses My servant, That I did command him in Horeb, For all Israel -- statutes and judgments.
5. Lo, I am sending to you Elijah the prophet, Before the coming of the day of Jehovah, The great and the fearful.
6. And he hath turned back the heart of fathers to sons, And the heart of sons to their fathers, Before I come and have utterly smitten the land!

Psalms 150:1-6
1. Praise ye Jah! Praise ye God in His holy place, Praise Him in the expanse of His strength.
2. Praise Him in His mighty acts, Praise Him according to the abundance of His greatness.
3. Praise Him with blowing of trumpet, Praise Him with psaltery and harp.
4. Praise Him with timbrel and dance, Praise Him with stringed instruments and organ.
5. Praise Him with cymbals of sounding, Praise Him with cymbals of shouting.
6. All that doth breathe doth praise Jah! Praise ye Jah!

Proverbs 31:10-31
10. A woman of worth who doth find? Yea, far above rubies [is] her price.
11. The heart of her husband hath trusted in her, And spoil he lacketh not.
12. She hath done him good, and not evil, All days of her life.
13. She hath sought wool and flax, And with delight she worketh [with] her hands.
14. She hath been as ships of the merchant, From afar she bringeth in her bread.
15. Yea, she riseth while yet night, And giveth food to her household, And a portion to her damsels.
16. She hath considered a field, and taketh it, From the fruit of her hands she hath planted a vineyard.
17. She hath girded with might her loins, And doth strengthen her arms.
18. She hath perceived when her merchandise [is] good, Her lamp is not extinguished in the night.
19. Her hands she hath sent forth on a spindle, And her hands have held a distaff.
20. Her hand she hath spread forth to the poor, Yea, her hands she sent forth to the needy.
21. She is not afraid of her household from snow, For all her household are clothed [with] scarlet.
22. Ornamental coverings she hath made for herself, Silk and purple [are] her clothing.
23. Known in the gates is her husband, In his sitting with elders of the land.
24. Linen garments she hath made, and selleth, And a girdle she hath given to the merchant.
25. Strength and honour [are] her clothing, And she rejoiceth at a latter day.
26. Her mouth she hath opened in wisdom, And the law of kindness [is] on her tongue.
27. She [is] watching the ways of her household, And bread of sloth she eateth not.
28. Her sons have risen up, and pronounce her happy, Her husband, and he praiseth her,
29. `Many [are] the daughters who have done worthily, Thou hast gone up above them all.`
30. The grace [is] false, and the beauty [is] vain, A woman fearing Jehovah, she may boast herself.
31. Give ye to her of the fruit of her hands, And her works do praise her in the gates!

Revelation 21:1-27
1. And I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth did pass away, and the sea is not any more;
2. and I, John, saw the holy city -- new Jerusalem -- coming down from God out of the heaven, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband;
3. and I heard a great voice out of the heaven, saying, `Lo, the tabernacle of God [is] with men, and He will tabernacle with them, and they shall be His peoples, and God Himself shall be with them -- their God,
4. and God shall wipe away every tear from their eyes, and the death shall not be any more, nor sorrow, nor crying, nor shall there be any more pain, because the first things did go away.`
5. And He who is sitting upon the throne said, `Lo, new I make all things; and He saith to me, `Write, because these words are true and stedfast;`
6. and He said to me, `It hath been done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End; I, to him who is thirsting, will give of the fountain of the water of the life freely;
7. he who is overcoming shall inherit all things, and I will be to him -- a God, and he shall be to me -- the son,
8. and to fearful, and unstedfast, and abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all the liars, their part [is] in the lake that is burning with fire and brimstone, which is a second death.`
9. And there came unto me one of the seven messengers, who have the seven vials that are full of the seven last plagues, and he spake with me, saying, `Come, I will shew thee the bride of the Lamb -- the wife,`
10. and he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and did shew to me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, coming down out of the heaven from God,
11. having the glory of God, and her light [is] like a stone most precious, as a jasper stone clear as crystal,
12. having also a wall great and high, having twelve gates, and at the gates twelve messengers, and names written thereon, which are [those] of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel,
13. at the east three gates, at the north three gates, at the south three gates, at the west three gates;
14. and the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
15. And he who is speaking with me had a golden reed, that he may measure the city, and its gates, and its wall;
16. and the city lieth square, and the length of it is as great as the breadth; and he did measure the city with the reed -- furlongs twelve thousand; the length, and the breadth, and the height, of it are equal;
17. and he measured its wall, an hundred forty-four cubits, the measure of a man, that is, of the messenger;
18. and the building of its wall was jasper, and the city [is] pure gold -- like to pure glass;
19. and the foundations of the wall of the city with every precious stone have been adorned; the first foundation jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, chalcedony; the fourth, emerald;
20. the fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, topaz; the tenth, chrysoprasus; the eleventh, jacinth; the twelfth, amethyst.
21. And the twelve gates [are] twelve pearls, each several one of the gates was of one pearl; and the broad-place of the city [is] pure gold -- as transparent glass.
22. And a sanctuary I did not see in it, for the Lord God, the Almighty, is its sanctuary, and the Lamb,
23. and the city hath no need of the sun, nor of the moon, that they may shine in it; for the glory of God did lighten it, and the lamp of it [is] the Lamb;
24. and the nations of the saved in its light shall walk, and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it,
25. and its gates shall not at all be shut by day, for night shall not be there;
26. and they shall bring the glory and the honour of the nations into it;
27. and there may not at all enter into it any thing defiling and doing abomination, and a lie, but -- those written in the scroll of the life of the Lamb.

Revelation 22:1-21
1. And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, bright as crystal, going forth out of the throne of God and of the Lamb:
2. in the midst of its broad place, and of the river on this side and on that, [is] a tree of life, yielding twelve fruits, in each several month rendering its fruits, and the leaves of the tree [are] for the service of the nations;
3. and any curse there shall not be any more, and the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him,
4. and they shall see His face, and His name [is] upon their foreheads,
5. and night shall not be there, and they have no need of a lamp and light of a sun, because the Lord God doth give them light, and they shall reign -- to the ages of the ages.
6. And he said to me, `These words [are] stedfast and true, and the Lord God of the holy prophets did send His messenger to shew to His servants the things that it behoveth to come quickly:
7. Lo, I come quickly; happy [is] he who is keeping the words of the prophecy of this scroll.`
8. And I, John, am he who is seeing these things and hearing, and when I heard and beheld, I fell down to bow before the feet of the messenger who is shewing me these things;
9. and he saith to me, `See -- not; for fellow-servant of thee am I, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of those keeping the words of this scroll; before God bow.`
10. And he saith to me, `Thou mayest not seal the words of the prophecy of this scroll, because the time is nigh;
11. he who is unrighteous -- let him be unrighteous still, and he who is filthy -- let him be filthy still, and he who is righteous -- let him be declared righteous still, and he who is sanctified -- let him be sanctified still:
12. And lo, I come quickly, and my reward [is] with me, to render to each as his work shall be;
13. I am the Alpha and the Omega -- the Beginning and End -- the First and the Last.
14. `Happy are those doing His commands that the authority shall be theirs unto the tree of the life, and by the gates they may enter into the city;
15. and without [are] the dogs, and the sorcerers, and the whoremongers, and the murderers, and the idolaters, and every one who is loving and is doing a lie.
16. `I, Jesus did send my messenger to testify to you these things concerning the assemblies; I am the root and the offspring of David, the bright and morning star!
17. And the Spirit and the Bride say, Come; and he who is hearing -- let him say, Come; and he who is thirsting -- let him come; and he who is willing -- let him take the water of life freely.
18. `For I testify to every one hearing the words of the prophecy of this scroll, if any one may add unto these, God shall add to him the plagues that have been written in this scroll,
19. and if any one may take away from the words of the scroll of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the scroll of the life, and out of the holy city, and the things that have been written in this scroll;`
20. he saith -- who is testifying these things -- `Yes, I come quickly!` Amen! Yes, be coming, Lord Jesus!
21. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [is] with you all. Amen.
