New International Version
Israel Doubts God’s Love
2 “I have loved(A) you,” says the Lord.
“But you ask,(B) ‘How have you loved us?’
“Was not Esau Jacob’s brother?” declares the Lord. “Yet I have loved Jacob,(C) 3 but Esau I have hated,(D) and I have turned his hill country into a wasteland(E) and left his inheritance to the desert jackals.(F)”
