“For the priests lips should keepe knowledge, and they should seeke the law at his mouth: for he is the messenger of the Lord of hostes.”
King James Version (KJV)
4. And yee shall know that I haue sent this commaundement vnto you, that my couenant might be with Leui, saith the Lord of hostes. 5. My couenant was with him of life and peace, and I gaue them to him, for the feare, wherewith he feared mee, and was afraid before my name. 6. The law of truth was in his mouth, and iniquitie was not found in his lips: he walked with me in peace and equitie, and did turne many away from iniquitie. 7. For the priests lips should keepe knowledge, and they should seeke the law at his mouth: for he is the messenger of the Lord of hostes. 8. But yee are departed out of the way: ye haue caused many to stumble at the law: ye haue corrupted the couenant of Leui, saith the Lord of hostes. 9. Therefore haue I also made you contemptible and base before al the people, according as yee haue not kept my wayes, but haue bin partiall in the law. 10. Haue we not all one father? hath not one God created vs? Why doe we deale treacherously euery man against his brother, by prophaning the couenant of our fathers?
