Malachi 1:1-5

NAS 1 The oracle of the word of the LORD to Israel through Malachi. NIV 1 An oracle: The word of the LORD to Israel through Malachi. NAS 2 "I have loved you," says the LORD . But you say, "How have You loved us?" "Was not Esau Jacob's brother?" declares the LORD . "Yet I have loved Jacob; NIV 2 "I have loved you," says the LORD. "But you ask, 'How have you loved us?' "Was not Esau Jacob's brother?" the LORD says. "Yet I have loved Jacob, NAS 3 but I have hated Esau, and I have made his mountains a desolation and appointed his inheritance for the jackals of the wilderness." NIV 3 but Esau I have hated, and I have turned his mountains into a wasteland and left his inheritance to the desert jackals." NAS 4 Though Edom says, "We have been beaten down, but we will return and build up the ruins "; thus says the LORD of hosts, "They may build, but I will tear down; and men will call them the wicked territory, and the people toward whom the LORD is indignant forever ." NIV 4 Edom may say, "Though we have been crushed, we will rebuild the ruins." But this is what the LORD Almighty says: "They may build, but I will demolish. They will be called the Wicked Land, a people always under the wrath of the LORD. NAS 5 Your eyes will see this and you will say, "The LORD be magnified beyond the border of Israel!" NIV 5 You will see it with your own eyes and say, 'Great is the LORD--even beyond the borders of Israel!'
