Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Malachi 1:13

_ _ what a weariness is it! — Ye regard God’s service as irksome, and therefore try to get it over by presenting the most worthless offerings. Compare Micah 6:3, where God challenges His people to show wherein is the “weariness” or hardship of His service. Also Isaiah 43:22-24, wherein He shows that it is they who have “wearied” Him, not He who has wearied them.

_ _ snuffed at — despised.

_ _ it — the table of the Lord, and the meat on it (Malachi 1:12).

_ _ torn — namely, by beasts, which it was not lawful to eat, much less to offer (Exodus 22:31).

_ _ thus ... offeringHebrew, mincha; the unbloody offering of flour, etc. Though this may have been of ordinary ingredients, yet the sacrifices of blemished animals accompanying it rendered it unacceptable.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Malachi 1:6-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Malachi 1:13

What a weariness — What a toil and drudgery to observe every point of the law. This — With such minds snuffing at my service, and with such sacrifices, unfit for mine altar.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Malachi 1:13

Ye said also, Behold, what a (o) weariness [is it]! and ye have snuffed at it, saith the LORD of hosts; and ye brought [that which was] torn, and the lame, and the sick; thus ye brought an offering: should I accept this of your hand? saith the LORD.

(o) The priests and people were both weary with serving God, and did not regard what manner of sacrifice and service they gave to God: for that which was least profitable, was thought good enough for the Lord.
