A Warning to Priests

1And now, O you priests, this commandment is for you. 2If you will not hear, and if you will not lay it to heart, to give glory to my name, said the LORD of hosts, I will even send a curse on you, and I will curse your blessings: yes, I have cursed them already, because you do not lay it to heart. 3Behold, I will corrupt your seed, and spread dung on your faces, even the dung of your solemn feasts; and one shall take you away with it. 4And you shall know that I have sent this commandment to you, that my covenant might be with Levi, said the LORD of hosts. 5My covenant was with him of life and peace; and I gave them to him for the fear with which he feared me, and was afraid before my name. 6The law of truth was in his mouth, and iniquity was not found in his lips: he walked with me in peace and equity, and did turn many away from iniquity. 7For the priest's lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth: for he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts. 8But you are departed out of the way; you have caused many to stumble at the law; you have corrupted the covenant of Levi, said the LORD of hosts. 9Therefore have I also made you contemptible and base before all the people, according as you have not kept my ways, but have been partial in the law.
