Behold, I will corrupt your seed, and spread dung upon your faces, even the dung of your solemn feasts; and one shall take you away with it.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

2:3 dung upon your faces. God had commanded that the dung of the sacrificial animals be buried “without the camp” (Exodus 29:14; Leviticus 4:11-12; 16:27). But, because of the faithlessness of the priests to their high calling, they were to be subjected to utter humiliation and disgrace. God would “send a curse upon you” (Malachi 2:2) and “take you away with it.” This dire warning seems to imply an untimely death, with each such corrupt priest buried “without the camp” in the dungheap.
