Therefore have I also made you contemptible and base before all the people, according as ye have not kept my ways, but have been partial in the law.When someone quotes the bible to me, I always look up the verse and read the entire chapter. I do this to get the context.
The second chapter of Malachi is presented as God speaking (through a prophet). It's important to realize that, when you read this verse.
Behold, I will corrupt your seed, and spread dung upon your faces, even the dung of your solemn feasts; and one shall take you away with it. Malachi 2:3Thank you, commenter, for revealing this loving treasure from God's holy word to me.
I think it would sound way cool to quote Malachi 2:3 using a Darth Vader voice. Or, to actually depict Jesus holding something brown while quoting this verse, in a comic. (Jesus=God to some christians.)
I have poop and know how to use it!
Don't worry. I'm not in danger of being browned out by Jesus. This is a warning to corrupt preists, not godless heathens like me (verses 1,7). By the way, God is still speaking to corrupt preists when we get to verse 9. Appearantly, I'm not the only one who twists scripture to make a point.
