Malachi 1:2-3New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (NRSVCE)
Israel Preferred to Edom
2 I have loved you, says the Lord. But you say, “How have you loved us?” Is not Esau Jacob’s brother? says the Lord. Yet I have loved Jacob 3 but I have hated Esau; I have made his hill country a desolation and his heritage a desert for jackals.
