Genesis 32:3-4

3And Jacob sent
Or had sent
messengers 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 2:4-25

4and 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, 18Today 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,
Hebrew them
and they dispossessed them and settled in their place,
22as he did for the people of Esau, who live in Seir, when he destroyed ag  the Horites before them and they dispossessed them and settled in their place even to this day. 23As for ah  the Avvim, who lived in villages as far as ai  Gaza, aj  the Caphtorim, who came from Caphtor, destroyed them and settled in their place.) 24‘Rise up, set out on your journey and ak  go over the Valley of the Arnon. 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.’

Deuteronomy 23:7

7“You shall not abhor an Edomite, for ao  he is your brother. You shall not abhor an Egyptian, because ap  you were a sojourner in his land.

Obadiah 10-12

Edom’s Violence Against Jacob

10 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.

Malachi 1:2

The  Lord’s Love for Israel
