Malachi 2:13-15 This is another thing you do. You cover the Lord’s altar with your tears. You cry and moan, because he does not accept your offerings and is not pleased with what you bring. You ask “Why?” It is because the Lord sees how you treated the wife you martied when you were young. You broke your promise to her, even though she was your partner and you had an agreement with her. God made husbands and wives to become one body and one spirit and for one purpose– so they would have children who are true to God.
