Mal. 1:6

King James Version

A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a Father, where is Mine honour? and if I be a Master, where is My fear? saith the LORD of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise My name. And ye say, Wherein have we despised Thy name?
New King James Version

A son honors his father, and a servant his master. If then I am the Father, where is My honor? And if I am a Master, where is My reverence? Says the LORD of hosts to you priests who despise My name. Yet you say, In what way have we despised Your name?
New American Standard Bible

A son honors his father, and a servant his master. Then if I am a father, where is My honor? And if I am a master, where is My respect? says the LORD of hosts to you, O priests who despise My name. But you say, How have we despised Thy name?
New International Version

A son honors his father, and a servant his master. If I am a father, where is the honor due Me? If I am a master, where is the respect due Me? says the LORD Almighty. It is you, O priests, who show contempt for My name. But you ask, How have we shown contempt for Your name?
The Amplified Bible

A son honors his father, and a servant his master. If then I am a Father, where is My honor? And if I am a Master, where is the [reverent] fear due Me? says the Lord of hosts to you, O priests, who despise My name. You say, How and in what way have we despised Your name?
