A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father, where is my honour? And if I be a master, where is my fear? saith the LORD of hosts unto you, O priests, that despised my name. And you say, Wherein have we despised thy name? You offer polluted bread upon my altar; and you say, Wherein have we polluted thee? In that you say, The table of the LORD is contemptible. And if you offer the blind for sacrifice, is it not evil? And if you offer the lame and sick, is it not evil? Offer it now unto thy govenor; will he be pleased with thee, or accept thy person, saith the LORD of hosts (Malachi 1:6 – 8)?
It is well to please God and to delight in him greatly, to bring forth treasures of joy and exaltation before him; to exalt his name greatly with great gifts, to honour God in his righteousness; for Holy is the LORD our God. Give unto the LORD glory. Give unto him your best. Offer to God righteousness and great hope. Give unto the LORD glory. Exalt his name in truth. Will God be pleased with lies and deceit and dishonor? Stretch forth thy hands in righteousness and in truth before the LORD. Repent of your sins and come with clean hands before God, that he may delight in your thanksgiving and your praises.
Forsake not his name, nor dishonor him; for who is like the LORD? There is none like him, whose glory is magnified greatly. Praise the LORD of righteousness and truth. Would you compare him to man? Yet you delight in man with great joy, and give to them great honour and praise. And who is the LORD that you will forsake the hand that created you? Who is the LORD of thy soul that made thee? O great is the God in the highest. Magnify his name with joy. Lift up his honour and glory. Beautify his soul with thanksgiving. Let your praises magnify his name. There is none like this great God. I tell you the truth. Out of Zion, none can be found that is greater than he. He is the LORD, most High and mighty God. Let his name be magnified. O LORD my God, my glory, who is like thee, O LORD? Thou stand on the hill of glory. Mountains crumble at thy presence. O LORD, thy fire burneth fiercely and consume thy enemies, round about thee. Thou art LORD, the living God of righteousness. Let honour beseech the LORD. Let glory come too. Let it come quickly like a rushing wind and praise his name. In his hand, man shall rejoice with great gifts. The God of Zion shall be magnified greatly. Let his name be exalted above all names. Thou art King forever, O LORD. The fountain of living waters is the LORD. Out of his hand cometh mighty wonders. Great is the God of heaven. Let his glory abound. Let it abound without ceasing. His treasures are magnified in the heavens and the earth. And none is richer than the LORD. All that are in the heavens and the earth is his. Consider thy glory, O vain men. Consider thy evil and flee from it. Honour God and he shall honour you. Dishonor God and you shall find no joy in the land of the living. By his hand all things shall be delivered, the living and the dead. Surely the LORD shall be praised greatly. In all the land his beauty shall blossom. Yea, I tell you the truth. The LORD is God and there is none like him. Look up to the heavens and you shall see the glory of God. Give honour where honour is due. Give glory to the LORD. Let his name be magnified. Stand in the fear of the LORD and give glory to God. Blessed be his Holy name. Blessed be the great and mighty King. Blessed be the magnificent glory, my God, who laid down treasures, in that he created the heavens and the earth, his great wonders that only the LORD of hosts performed.
