"I have loved you," says the Lord. But you ask: "How have You loved us?" "Wasn't Esau Jacob's brother?" [This is] the Lord's declaration. "Even so, I loved Jacob,
but I hated Esau. I turned his mountains into a wasteland, and [gave] his inheritance to the desert jackals."
Though Edom says: "We have been devastated, but we will rebuild the ruins," the Lord of Hosts says this: "They may build, but I will demolish. They will be called a wicked country and the people the Lord has cursed forever.
Your own eyes will see this, and you yourselves will say: The Lord is great, [even] beyond the borders of Israel.
