13 And this is the second thing you do:

You cover the altar of the Lord with tears,

With weeping and crying;

So He does not regard the offering anymore,

Nor receive it with goodwill from your hands.

14 Yet you say, “For what reason?”

Because the Lord has been witness

Between you and tthe wife of your youth,

With whom you have dealt treacherously;

uYet she is your companion

And your wife by covenant.

15 But vdid He not make them one,

Having a remnant of the Spirit?

And why one?

He seeks wgodly offspring.

“Therefore take heed to your spirit,

And let none deal treacherously with the wife of his youth.

16 “For xthe Lord God of Israel says

That He hates divorce,

For it covers one’s garment with violence,”

Says the Lord of hosts.

Therefore take heed to your spirit,

That you do not deal treacherously.”
