Malachi 1:12-14 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
12 But you profane it by saying
that the Lord’s table is defiled,
and its food may be disdained.
13 You say, “See what a burden this is!”
and you exasperate me, says the Lord of hosts;
You bring in what is mutilated, or lame, or sick;
you bring it as an offering!
Will I accept it from your hands?
says the Lord.
14 Cursed is the cheat who has in his flock an intact male,
and vows it, but sacrifices to the Lord a defective one instead;
For a great king am I, says the Lord of hosts,
and my name is feared among the nations.
