I have loved you, saith the LORD. Yet ye say , Wherein hast thou loved us? Was not EsauJacob'sbrother?saith the LORD: yet I lovedJacob,3
And I hatedEsau, and laid his mountains and his heritagewaste for the dragons of the wilderness.4
Whereas Edomsaith , We are impoverished , but we will return and build the desolate places; thus saith the LORD of hosts, They shall build , but I will throw down ; and they shall call them, The border of wickedness, and, The people against whom the LORD hath indignationforever.5
And your eyes shall see , and ye shall say , The LORD will be magnified from the border of Israel.
