Wesley's Notes for Malachi 1:7


1:7 Bread - Either the meal - offerings, or rather in a more large sense, all sacrifices and oblations. Ye say - Perhaps in words; at least your deeds speak your thoughts. The table - This comprehends all that was offered to God.

    The cattle rancher that brought a blind lamb to the priest is saying "this is the best God has given me ". The priest did not reject the offering saying "are all your lambs blind, I don 't think so, go back and bring your best "., this priest is then more to be condemned than the rancher, the priest should teach the truth. The fact of the matter is the priest is an unbeliever, he does not believe God sees, or knows or cares. Further, he really wants the sacrifices for himself.
