Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Malachi 1:11

_ _ For — Since ye Jewish priests and people “despise My name” (Malachi 1:6), I shall find others who will magnify it (Matthew 3:9). Do not think I shall have no worshippers because I have not you; for from the east to the west My name shall be great among the Gentiles (Isaiah 66:19, Isaiah 66:20), those very peoples whom ye look down upon as abominable.

_ _ pure offering — not “the blind, the lame, and the sick,” such as ye offer (Malachi 1:8). “In every place,” implies the catholicity of the Christian Church (John 4:21, John 4:23; 1 Timothy 2:8). The “incense” is figurative of prayers (Psalms 141:2; Revelation 8:3). “Sacrifice” is used metaphorically (Psalms 51:17; Hebrews 13:10, Hebrews 13:15, Hebrews 13:16; 1 Peter 2:5, 1 Peter 2:12). In this sense the reference to the Lord’s Supper, maintained by many of the fathers, may be admitted; it, like prayer, is a spiritual offering, accepted through the literal offering of the “Lamb without blemish,” once for all slain.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Malachi 1:6-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Malachi 1:11

Incense — A law term for a gospel duty, and under this type are contained the prayers and praises, nay, the whole gospel — worship. A pure offering — Both sincere, in opposition to hypocrisy, and holy, in opposition to impurity, superstition and idolatry.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Malachi 1:11

For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same my name [shall be] (m) great among the Gentiles; and in every place incense [shall be] offered unto my name, and a pure offering: for my name [shall be] great among the heathen, saith the LORD of hosts.

(m) God shows that their ingratitude and neglect of his true service will be the cause of the calling of the Gentiles: and here the Prophet that was under the Law, used words that the people would understand, and by the altar and sacrifice he means the spiritual service of God, which should be under the Gospel, when an end would be made to all these legal ceremonies by Christ's sacrifice alone.

Cross-Reference Topical ResearchStrong's Concordance
from:
As the preceding verse was a prediction of the abolition of the Levitical priesthood, so this is a prophecy of the conversion of the Gentiles, and the spiritual priesthood of the Gospel times. As none but priests of Aaron's race might burn incense before Jehovah, a total change of the external administration of the sacred ordinances is evidently predicted.
