The need to return to Yahweh (Mal 3:7-3:7)

“‘Ever since the days of your ancestors,

You have turned aside

From my statutes.

You have not kept them.

Return to me!

Then I will return to you.’

Says Yahweh of hosts.

But you say.

‘How shall we return?’”

Yahweh, via Malachi, told the Israelites that they were like their ancestors, since they had not kept his statutes.  They needed to return to Yahweh.  However, they responded that they did not know how to return to Yahweh.
