Malachi 1:10-12 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
10 Oh, that one of you would just shut the temple gates
to keep you from kindling fire on my altar in vain!
I take no pleasure in you, says the Lord of hosts;
and I will not accept any offering from your hands!
11 From the rising of the sun to its setting,
my name is great among the nations;
Incense offerings are made to my name everywhere,
and a pure offering;
For my name is great among the nations,
says the Lord of hosts.
12 But you profane it by saying
that the Lord’s table is defiled,
and its food may be disdained.
