Malachi 1:2 - 1:5

2 “I have loved you,” says Yahweh. But you say, “How have You loved us?” “Was not Esau Jacob’s brother?” declares Yahweh. “Yet I have loved Jacob; 3 but I have hated Esau, and I have set his mountains to be a desolation and his inheritance for the jackals of the wilderness.” 4 Though Edom says, “We have been demolished, but we will return and build up the waste places”; thus says Yahweh of hosts, “They may build, but I will pull down; and men will call them a territory of wickedness, and the people toward whom Yahweh is indignant forever.” 5 And your eyes will see this, and you will say, “Yahweh be magnified beyond the territory of Israel!”
