Genesis 32:3-43And Jacob sent ▼
▼Or had sentmessengers before him to Esau his brother in the land of b Seir, the country of Edom, 4instructing them, “Thus you shall say to my lord Esau: Thus says your servant Jacob, ‘I have sojourned with Laban and stayed until now.
Deuteronomy 2:4-254and command the people, “You are about to pass through the territory of c your brothers, the people of Esau, d who live in Seir; and e they will be afraid of you. So be very careful. 5Do not contend with them, for I will not give you any of their land, no, not so much as for the sole of the foot to tread on, because f I have given Mount Seir to Esau as a possession. 6 g You shall purchase food from them with money, that you may eat, and you shall also buy water from them with money, that you may drink. 7For the Lord your God has blessed you in all the work of your hands. h He knows your going through this great wilderness. i These forty years the Lord your God has been with you. You have lacked nothing.”’ 8So j we went on, away from our brothers, the people of Esau, who live in Seir, away from k the Arabah road from l Elath and m Ezion-geber. “And we turned and went in the direction of the wilderness of Moab. 9And the Lord said to me, n ‘Do not harass Moab or contend with them in battle, for I will not give you any of their land for a possession, because I have given o Ar to p the people of Lot for a possession.’ 10( q The Emim formerly lived there, r a people great and many, and tall s as the Anakim. 11Like the Anakim they are also counted as t Rephaim, but the Moabites call them Emim. 12 u The Horites also lived in Seir formerly, but the people of Esau dispossessed them and destroyed them from before them and settled in their place v as Israel did to the land of their possession, which the Lord gave to them.) 13‘Now rise up and go over w the brook Zered.’ So we went over x the brook Zered. 14And the time from our leaving y Kadesh-barnea until we crossed z the brook Zered was thirty-eight years, aa until the entire generation, that is, the men of war, had perished from the camp, as the Lord had sworn to them. 15For indeed the hand of the Lord was against them, to destroy them from the camp, until they had perished. 16“So as soon as all the men of war had perished and were dead from among the people, 17the Lord said to me, 18‘Today you are to cross the border of Moab at Ar. 19And when you approach the territory of the people of Ammon, ab do not harass them or contend with them, for I will not give you any of the land of the people of Ammon as a possession, because I have given it to ac the sons of Lot for a possession.’ 20(It is also counted as a land of ad Rephaim. Rephaim formerly lived there—but the Ammonites call them Zamzummim— 21 ae a people great and many, and tall as the Anakim; but the Lord destroyed them before the Ammonites, ▼

Behold, I have given into your hand Sihon the Amorite, king of al Heshbon, and his land. Begin to take possession, and am contend with him in battle. 25This day I will begin to put an the dread and fear of you on the peoples who are under the whole heaven, who shall hear the report of you and shall tremble and be in anguish because of you.’

Edom’s Violence Against Jacob10 aq Because of the violence done to your brother Jacob,
shame shall cover you,
ar and you shall be cut off forever.
11 as On the day that you stood aloof,
at on the day that strangers carried off his wealth
and foreigners entered his gates
au and cast lots for Jerusalem,
you were like one of them.
12 av But do not gloat over the day of your brother
in the day of his misfortune;
aw do not rejoice over the people of Judah
in the day of their ruin;
ax do not boast ▼
▼Hebrew do not enlarge your mouth
in the day of distress.
The Lord’s Love for Israel2 az “I have loved you,” says the Lord. ba But you say, “How have you loved us?” “Is not Esau bb Jacob’s brother?” declares the Lord. “Yet bc I have loved Jacob
