"But you ask, 'How have you loved us?' "Was not Esau Jacob's brother?" the LORD says. "Yet I have loved Jacob, RSV 3 but I have hated Esau; I have laid waste his hill country and left his heritage to jackals of the desert." NIV 3 but Esau I have hated, and I have turned his mountains into a wasteland and left his inheritance to the desert jackals." RSV 4 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." 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. RSV 5 Your own eyes shall see this, and you shall say, "Great is the LORD, 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!'
