As far as I can tell, the word DOMATA (in Mal 1:3) is accusative plural of
the neuter noun DOMA and means "gifts".  Brenton (according to BibleWorks)
translates it as "dwellings" and is supported in this by a commentary on
Malachi by D. L. Petersen.  I see the similarity between the words DOMA and
DOMOS, but is it possible to understand DOMATA as a form of DOMOS?
