Hosea 4:6

6My people are destroyed a  for lack of knowledge;
b  because you have rejected knowledge,
I reject you c  from being a priest to me.
And since you have forgotten the law of your God,
d  I also will forget your children.

Malachi 2:7

7For e  the lips of a priest should guard knowledge, and people
Hebrew they
should seek instruction from his mouth, for he is the messenger of the  Lord of hosts.
