"I have loved you," says the LORD. But you say, "How hast thou loved us?" "Is not Esau Jacob's brother?" says the LORD. "Yet I have loved Jacob
but I have hated Esau; I have laid waste his hill country and left his heritage to jackals of the desert."
If Edom says, "We are shattered but we will rebuild the ruins," the LORD of hosts says, "They may build, but I will tear down, till they are called the wicked country, the people with whom the LORD is angry for ever."
Your own eyes shall see this, and you shall say, "Great is the LORD, beyond the border of Israel!"
