A (14) But cursed be the deceiver, which hath in his flock a male, and voweth, and sacrificeth unto the Lord a corrupt thing: for I am a great King, saith Yahweh of hosts, and my name is dreadful <03372> among the heathen.
B (1) And now, O ye priests, this commandment is for you.
C (2) If ye will not hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto my name, saith Yahweh of hosts, I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings: yea, I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay it to heart.
D (3) Behold, I will corrupt your seed, and spread dung upon your faces <06440>,
D1 (3) even the dung of your solemn feasts; and one shall take you away with it.
C1 (4) And ye shall know that I have sent
B1 (4) this commandment unto you, that my covenant might be with Levi, saith the LORD of hosts.
A1 (5) My covenant was with him of life and peace; and I gave them to him for the fear wherewith he feared <03372> me, and was afraid before my name.
