1 And now, O ye priests, this commandment is for you. 2 If ye will not hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto my name, saith the LORD of hosts, I will even send a curse[1] upon you, and I will curse your blessings: yea, I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay it to heart.[2] 3 Behold, I will corrupt your seed, and spread dung upon your faces, even the dung of your solemn feasts; and one shall take you away with it. 4 And ye shall know that I have sent this commandment unto you, that my covenant might be with Levi, saith the LORD of hosts. 5 My covenant was with him of life and peace; and I gave them to him for the fear wherewith he feared me, and was afraid before my name. 6 The law of truth was in his mouth, and iniquity[3] was not found in his lips: he walked with me in peace and equity, and did turn many away from iniquity.[4] 7 For the priest's lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth: for he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts. 8 But ye are departed out of the way; ye have caused many to stumble at the law; ye have corrupted the covenant of Levi, saith the LORD of hosts. 9 Therefore have I also made you contemptible and base before all the people, according as ye have not kept my ways, but have been partial in the law.

Comments
Great Synagogue with events recorded in Nehemiah 8–10 had become a legislature imposing rule through their enactments.Offering became required through force which was a departure from the freewill offerings byway of the perfect law of liberty.
The people stumbled at the law against coveting thy neighbor's goods and making covenants with those who do not believe in the right to choose for each individual, choosing rather to sell their birth right respecting one over the other.
The state was becoming the father of the people.
Understanding the job of the priests and the nature of the altars is critical.
They use their priestly garments to cover or justify the use of force which pollutes their offerings and makes their benefits the wages of unrighteousness.
The people were accepting the way of Balaam and the Nicolaitans and were becoming workers of iniquity.
Their sacrifices were again like the Corban of the pharisees and weremaking the word of God to none effect.
This forced sacrifice "torn" from the people was without mercy on weak and would rob the widows and orphans and would not bear fruit.
It is the Sin of Sodom that failed to strengthen the poor.
[1]

10 Have we not all one father? hath not one God created us? why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers? 11 Judah hath dealt treacherously, and an abomination is committed in Israel and in Jerusalem; for Judah hath profaned the holiness of the LORD which he loved, and hath married the daughter of a strange god. 12 The LORD will cut off the man that doeth this, the master and the scholar, out of the tabernacles of Jacob, and him that offereth[5] an offering[6] unto the LORD of hosts. 13 And this have ye done again, covering the altar[7] of the LORD with tears, with weeping, and with crying out, insomuch that he regardeth not the offering[6] any more, or receiveth it with good will at your hand. 14 Yet ye say, Wherefore? Because the LORD hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt treacherously:[8] yet is she thy companion, and the wife of thy covenant. 15 And did not he make one? Yet had he the residue of the spirit. And wherefore one? That he might seek a godly seed. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth. 16 For the LORD, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away: for one covereth violence[9] with his garment[10], saith the LORD of hosts: therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously.[11] 17 Ye have wearied the LORD with your words. Yet ye say, Wherein have we wearied him? When ye say, Every one that doeth evil[12] is good[13] in the sight of the LORD,[14] and he delighteth in them; or, Where is the God of judgment?
