7 From the days of your fathers you have turned away from my ordinances, and have not kept them. Return to me, and I will return to you, says Yahweh of Armies. But you say, How shall we return? 8 Will a man rob God? Yet you rob me! But you say, How have we robbed you? In tithes and offerings. 9 You are cursed with the curse; for you rob me, even this whole nation. 10 Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house, and test me now in this, says Yahweh of Armies, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there will not be room enough for. 11 I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast its fruit before its time in the field, says Yahweh of Armies. 12 All nations shall call you blessed, for you will be a delightful land, says Yahweh of Armies.
