8 “Will a man rob God?
Yet you have robbed Me!
But you say,
‘In what way have we robbed You?’
sIn tithes and offerings.
For you have robbed Me,
Even this whole nation.
That there may be food in My house,
And try Me now in this,”
Says the Lord of hosts,
“If I will not open for you the vwindows of heaven
And wpour out for you such blessing
That there will not be room enough to receive it.
11 “And I will rebuke xthe devourer for your sakes,
So that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground,
Nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field,”
Says the Lord of hosts;
For you will be ya delightful land,”
Says the Lord of hosts.
