Gary H. Everett's Study Notes on the Holy Scriptures

Malachi 2

Verses 1-17

Malachi 2:13 And this have ye done again, covering the altar of the LORD with tears, with weeping, and with crying out, insomuch that he regardeth not the offering any more, or receiveth it with good will at your hand.

Malachi 2:14 Yet ye say, Wherefore? Because the LORD hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt treacherously: yet is she thy companion, and the wife of thy covenant.

Malachi 2:14 Comments - The “wife of thy youth” would be the virgin lady whom a man first marries. The breaking of the woman’s hymen and the shedding of this blood would make her the “wife of thy covenant”, which is a blood covenant. God will not overlook this blood covenant that was made between a man and a woman.
