    Malachi 3:5-7

    The Jews had rebuilt the temple and were awaiting the Messiah’s coming. But while they waited, they fell under the attack of pride, disrespect and compromise. The people and their priests offered God blemished sacrifices, divorced their first wives, married heathen women and failed to support the temple ministry with their tithes. Malachi charged them to recognize their sins, reminding them that the wicked would be judged, and the righteous would be blessed.
