them.

7 And they of Ephraim shall be like a
mighty man, and their i heart shall rejoice
as through wine : yea, their children shall
see it, and be glad ; their heart shall rejoice
in the Lord.

8 I will 'hiss for them, and gather them ;
for I have redeemed them : = and they shall
increase as they have increased.

9 And * I will sow them among the peo-
ple : and they shall "remember me -in far
countries; and they shall live with their
children, and turn again.

10 == I will bring them again also out of
the land of Egypt, and gather them out of
Assyria; and I will bring them into the
land of Gilead and Lebanon ; and y "place
shall not be found for them.

11 ^And he shall pass through the sea
with affliction, and shall smite the waves in
the sea, and all the deeps of the river shall
dry up : and » the pride of Assyria shall be
brought down, and ^ the sceptre of Egypt
shall depart away.

12 And I will strengthen them in the
Lord; and "they shall walk up and down in
his name, saith the Lord.

The type of a foolish shepherd.

Beauty, and the other I called || Band^ ; and

I fed the flock.

8 Three shepherds also I cut oflT '' in one
month ; and my soul f loathed them, and their
soul also abhorred me.

9 THen said I, I will not feed you : ' that
that dieth, let it die ; and that that is to be
cut off", let it be cut oflf ; and let the rest eat,
every one the flesh t of another.

10 IT And I took my staff, even Beauty,
and cut it asunder, that I might break my
covenant which I had made with all the
people.

11 And it was broken in that day : and

II so ^ the poor of the flock that waited upon
me knew that it was the word of the
Lord.

12 And I said unto them, flf ye think
good, giv.e me my price ; and if not, forbear.
So they ^ weighed for my price thirty pieces
of silver.

13 And the Lord said unto me. Cast it
unto the "potter : a goodly price that I was
prized at of them. And l took the thirty
pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter
in the house of the Lord.

14 Then I cut asunder mine other staff^
even || Bands, that I might break the bro-
therhood between Judah and Israel.

15 IT And the Lord said unto me, "Take
unto thee yet the instruments of a foolish
shepherd.

16 For lo, I will raise up a shepherd in
the land, which shall not visit those that be
II cut off", neither shall seek the young one,
nor heal that that is broken, nor || feed
that that standeth still : but he shall eat
the flesh of the fat, and tear their claws in
pieces.

17 "Wo to the idol shepherd that leaveth"
the flock ! the sword shall he upon his arm,
and upon his right eye : his arm shall be
clean dried up, and his right eye shall be
utterly darkened.

in pieces, though all the people of the earth
be gathered together against it.

4 In that day, saith the Lord, *■! will
smite every horse with astonishment, and
his rider with madness : and I will open
mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and
will smite every horse of the people with
blindness.

5 And the governors of Judah shall say
in their heart, || The inhabitants of Jerusa-
lem shall be my strength in the Lord of
hosts their God.

6 IT In that day will I make the governors
of Judah slike a hearth of fire among the
wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and
they shall devour all the people round about,
on the right hand and on the left : and Jeru-
salem shall be inhabited again in her own
place, even in Jerusalem.

7 The Lord also shall save the tents of
Judah first, that the glory of the house of
David and the glory of the inhabitants of
Jerusalem do not magnify themselves against
Judah.

8 In that day shall the Lord defend the
inhabitants of Jerusalem; and ""he that is
II t feeble among them at that day shall be
as David ; and the house of David shall he
as God, as the angel of the Lord before
them.

9 IF And it shall come to pass in that day,
that I will seek to 'destroy all the nations
that come against Jerusalem.

10 ''And I will pour upon the house of
David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusa
lem, the spirit of grace and of supplications :
and they shall 'look upon me whom they
have pierced, and they shall mourn for him,
•" as one mourneth for his only son, and shall
be in bitterness for him, as one that is in
bitterness for his first-born.

11 In that day shall there be a great
"mourning in Jerusalem, °as the mourn-
ing of Hadadrimmon in *the valley of Me
giddon.

12 PAnd the land shall mourn, t every
family apart; the family of the house of
David apart, and their wives apart; the
family of the house of ^Nathan apart, and
their wives apart;

13 The family of the house of Levi apart,
and their wives apart ; the family || of Shimei

family apart, and their wives apart.

The death of Christ foretold.

IN »that day there shall be ''a fountain
opened to the house of David and to the
inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for
funcleanness.

2 IT And it shall come to pass in that day,
sg,ith the Lord of hosts, that I will ''cut off
the names of the idols out of the land, and
they shall no more be remembered : and
also I will cause ^the prophets and the un-
clean spirit to pass out of the land.

3 And it shall come to pass, that when
any shall yet prophesy, then his father and
his mother that begat him shall say unto
him. Thou shalt not live ; for thou speakest
lies in the name of the Lord: and his
father and his mother that begat him
''shall thrust him through when he pro
phesieth.

4 And it shall come to pass in that day,
that ''the prophets shall be ashamed every
one of his vision, when he hath prophesied ;
neither shall they wear s-fa. rough garment
tto deceive :

5 ''But he shall say, I am no prophet, I am
an husbandman ; for man taught me to keep
cattle from my youth.

6 And one shall say unto him, What are
these wounds in thy hands ? Then he shall .
answer. Those with which I was \<rounded
in the house of my friends.

7 IT Awake, O sword, against 'my Shep-
herd, and against the man ^ that is my
fellow, saith the Lord of hosts: 'smite the
Shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered ;
and I will turn mine hand upon ■" the little
ones.

8 And it shall come to pass, that in all the
land, saith the Lord, two parts therein shall
be cut off and die; "but the third shall be
left therein.

9 And I will bring the third part "through
the fire, and will p refine them as silver is
refined, and will try them as gold is tried :
^they shall call on my name, and I will hear
them: ""I will say. It is my people; and they
shall say. The Lord is my God.

the people shall not be cut off from the
city.

3 Then shall the Lord go forth, and
fight against those nations, as when he fought
in the day of battle.

4 IT And his feet shall stand in that day
*upon the mount of Olives, which is before
Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of
Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof
toward the east and toward the west, « and
there shall be a very great valley ; and half of
the mountain shall remove toward the north,
and half of it toward the south.

5 And ye shall flee to the valley of || the
mountains ; || for the valley of the mountains
shall reach unto Azal : yea, ye shall flee like
as y.e fled from before the *" earthquake in the
days of Uzziah king of Judah : ? and the Lord
my God shall come, and ^ all the saints with
thee.

6 And it shall come to pass in that day,
II that the light shall not be t clear, nor
t dark :

7 But II it shall be 'one day ''which shall
be known to the Lord, not day, nor night :
but it shall come to pass, that at 'evening
time it shall be light.

8 And it shall be in that day, that living
"waters shall go out from Jerusalem ; half
of them toward the || former sea, and half
of them toward the hinder sea : in summer
and in winter shall it be.

9 And the Lord shall be "King over all
the earth : in that day shall there be ° one
Lord, and his name one.

10 All the land shall be || turned Pas a
plain from Geba to Rimmon, south of Jeru-
salem : and it shall be lifted up, and 1 1| in-
habited in her place, from Benjamin's gate
unto the place of the first gate, unto the
corner-gate, 'and from the tower of Hana-
neel unto the king's wine-presses.

11 And men shall dwefl in it, and there
shaU be =no more utter destruction; *but
Jerusalem || shall be safely inhabited.

12 lAnd this shall be the plague where-
with the Lord will smite all the people
that have fought against Jerusalem ; Their
flesh shall consume away while they stand

CHAP. I.

1 Mtdaehi complairwth of Israel's unkindness. 6 Of their
irreligiousness, 12 and profaneness.

THE burden of the word of the Lord
to Israel f by Malachi.

2 » I have loved you, saith the Lord. Yet
ye say, Wherein hast thou loved us? Was
not Esau Jacob's brother ? saith the Lord :
yet ''I loved Jacob,

3 And I hated Esau, and "laid his moun-
tains and his heritage waste for the dragons
of the wilderness.

4 Whereas Edom saith. We are -impov-
erished, but we will return and build the de-
solate places ; thus saith the Lord of hosts,
They shall build, but I will throw' down ;
and they shall call them. The border of
wickedness, and. The people against whom
the Lord hath indignation for ever.

5 And your eyes shall see, and ye shall
say, ^ The Lord will be magnified || f from
the border of Israel.

6 IT A son « honoureth his. father, and a
servant his master: *'if then I 6e a father,
where «5 mine honour? and if I 6e a master,
where is my fear ? saith the Lord of hosts
unto you, O priests, that despise my name.
K And ye say. Wherein have we despised thy
name?

7 II Ye offer "^ polluted bread upon mine
altar; and ye say. Wherein have we pol-
luted thee ? In that ye say, ' The table of
the Lord is contemptible.

8 And ^ if ye offer the blind ffor sacrifice,
is it not evil? and if ye offer the lame and
sick, is it not evil? offer it now unto thy
governor ; will he be pleased with thee, or
' accept thy person ? saith the Lord of hosts.

9 And now, I pray you, beseech t God
that he will be gracious unto us : ■" this hath
been f by your means : will he regard your
persons? saith the Lord of hosts.

10 Who is there even among you that
would shut the doors ybr nought? "neither
do ye kindle fire on mine altar for nought.
I have no pleasure in you, saith the Lord
of hosts, ° neither will I accept an offering
at your hand.

11 For Pfrom the rising of the sun even
unto the going down of the same, my name
shall he great i among the Gentiles; 'and in
every place ■ incense shall he offered unto my
name, and a pure offering : ' for my name
shall he great among the heathen, saith the
Lord of hosts.

12 IT But ye have profaned it, in that ye
say, "The table of the Lord is polluted;
and the fruit thereof, even his meat, is con-
temptible.

13 Ye said also. Behold, what a weari-
ness is it ! II and ye have snuffed at it, saith
the Lord of -hosts ; and ye brought that
which was torn, and the lame, and the sick;
thus ye brought an offering : =■ should I accept
this of yx)ur hand ? saith the Lord.

14 But cursed he ^ the deceiver, || which
hath in his flock a male, and voweth, and
sacrificeth unto the Lord a corrupt thing :
for ^I am a. great King, saith the Lord of
hosts, and my name is dreadful among the

1 He sharply reproveth the priests for neglecting their
covenant, 11 and the people for idolatry, 14 for
adultery, 17 and for infidelity.

AND now, O ye priests, this command-
ment is for you.

of hosts.

5 " My covenant was with him of life and
peace; and I gave them to him ^for the
fear wherewith he feared me, and was afraid
before my name.

6 «The law of truth was in his mouth,
and iniquity was not foujid in his lips : he
walked with me in peace and equity, and
did '"turn many away from iniquity.

7 e For the priest's lips should keep know-
ledge, and they should seek the law at his
mouth : '' for he is the messenger of the
Lord of hosts.

8 But ye are departed out of the way;
ye ' have caused many to || stumble at the
law; ^ye have corrupted the covenant of
Levi, saith the Lord of hosts.

temptible and base before all the people,
