Robbing God

6For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore you sons of Jacob are not consumed. 7Even from the days of your fathers you are gone away from my ordinances, and have not kept them. Return to me, and I will return to you, said the LORD of hosts. But you said, Wherein shall we return? 8Will a man rob God? Yet you have robbed me. But you say, Wherein have we robbed you? In tithes and offerings. 9You are cursed with a curse: for you have robbed me, even this whole nation. 10Bring you all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in my house, and prove me now herewith, said the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. 11And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, said the LORD of hosts. 12And all nations shall call you blessed: for you shall be a delightsome land, said the LORD of hosts. 13Your words have been stout against me, said the LORD. Yet you say, What have we spoken so much against you? 14You have said, It is vain to serve God: and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the LORD of hosts? 15And now we call the proud happy; yes, they that work wickedness are set up; yes, they that tempt God are even delivered.
