Mal 1:13 But you say, ‘What a weariness this is,’ and you snort at it, says the Lord of hosts. You bring what has been taken by violence or is lame or sick, and this you bring as your offering! Shall I accept that from your hand? says the Lord. (For complete context read Mal 1.)
The Lord says He will not accept stolen goods or money, whether the priests accepted them on His behalf or not. God wants your best, from what is honest and true and pure, whether it is a material offering or an offering of the heart.
