That's one I don't understand. What I do understand is this idea of divorce in the context of patriarchy - neglecting to protect one's wife and leaving her in desolation, favouring foreign wives and possibly gain in land, resources etc.
Of course today this can equally apply to women who leave husbands devastated for whatever reason. The words of Paul come to my mind in him learning to be content with what he had whether he was prosperous or in need etc and of learning to be grateful.
Its easy to miss out on one's blessings by looking at what one does not have and wanting more. Seems that this is a marketer's dream. No more let sins and sorrows grow, Nor thorns infest the ground; He comes to make His blessings flow Far as the curse is found, Far as the curse is found, Far as, far as the curse is found. He rules the world with truth and grace, And makes the nations prove The glories of His righteousness, And wonders of His love, And wonders of His love, And wonders, and wonders of His love.
The lack of evidence doesn't prove that God was silent during this period. Did Jesus 'feel' like going to the cross to die for us? It was a self-sacrificing act, a choice - love in its purest form - the greatest act of love in all of history! Yesterday's sermon in St Mary's Maidenhead was on Zechariah's song when he met the Christchild, the preacher remarking that both his and also Mary's song contained prophecy, bringing light to the gentiles in the context of the "period of silence".
Thank you ANGELA you are so right - feelings can never control us - He is sovereign and asks for out obedience and trust in every situation. Adam, I think the word "hate" here is used in a similar way to Jesus' saying in Luke I can't help thinking that the section The readings have skipped bah, I wish they wouldn't skip the earlier part of chapter 2 which puts this in the context of Levi breaking faith. God hates really hates sloppy, half-hearted, second-best, hand-me-down worship.
He also really hates it when people try to serve him alongside home-made or imported gods. To him that is adultery and divorce. I think that is a good question you asked ADAM. I have heard the saying, "we are to hate the sin, but not the sinner. I want, dear Lord, a love that feels for all; a deep, strong love that answers every call; a love like Thine, a love divine, a love for high and low; on me, dear Lord, a love like this bestow. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.
Hugh, yes, skipping about means we have lost the pleasure and encouragement of verses 5 to 7, which Douglas Milmine used to describe my father at his funeral. Dad was a classics scholar and his first vicar said that he always went for help to George his curate, for matters of translation and understanding.
For the lips of a priest should guard knowledge and men should seek instruction from his mouth, for he is the messenger of the Lord of Hosts. Attending his funeral gave me such a beautiful and deep understanding of The Lord, that my own feeling towards death changed. For me, this coming year will be lessons in true humility. It will be difficult! I red some where that means a lesser love. That's an interesting point Hugh about the context of "hate" as in family.
I understand that to mean the sense of preferring Jesus - that is not letting anything in the family holding back from devotion to Jesus. That in that sense it is hyperbole, not literally hating someone but an exaduration to make a point. The point being when faced with a choice preferring or acting more favourably to another. And so of course we are called to do so with God for he is Lord and can love perfectly as anyone who is not without sin can't. I like that explanation.

Having rebuilt the Temple, initial enthusiasm has given way to disappointment. The people are neglecting the Temple and are failing to provide adequately for the priesthood.
The priests disregard their duties. The rich oppress the poor and the religious life of the people is characterised by hypocrisy. Malachi calls the people to repentance by means of a series of disputations between God and the people. We know nothing about Malachi himself.

We cannot even be sure about his name. Deeper Bible study When Malachi condemns divorce, he addresses men, not women. It may also offer, to a limited extent, a critique of patriarchy itself. Israelite married men had the right to divorce their partners; women had no such right. Malachi rails against men who, in the second Temple period, seem caught up in an epidemic of divorce. Their actions, says Malachi, are unjustifiable. They are breaking faith, profaning their covenant, not only with their wives but also with God.

We all struggle with our own personal demons, even though they may seem strange or insignificant to others. Pain is always lonely, whether physical, mental, emotional or spiritual, and no one except our Creator can fully understand.
As we face the challenges of life, we come face to face with the need for something or someone greater than ourselves to sustain, guide and comfort us.
Only when we fall before our mighty Creator and begin to comprehend his incredible power, love, and forgiveness, do we find what is missing and the huge hole in our heart and soul is filled. In this book we look into Jan's heart and share some of the pain and joy of her journey. It is her prayer that you, the reader, will see that our Heavenly Father is waiting with open arms to meet your every need as only He can.
