1"I have loved you," says the LORD. 2But you say, "How have you loved us?""Is not Esau 3Jacob's brother?" declares the LORD. "Yet 4I have loved Jacob
but Esau I have hated. 5I 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, and they will be called 'the wicked country,' and 'the people with whom the LORD is angry forever.'"
6Your own eyes shall see this, and you shall say, "Great is the LORD beyond the border of Israel!"
