Malachi 1:2-3

The  Lord’s Love for Israel

2 a  “I have loved you,” says the  Lord. b  But you say, “How have you loved us?” “Is not Esau c  Jacob’s brother?” declares the  Lord. “Yet d  I have loved Jacob 3but Esau I have hated. e  I have laid waste his hill country and left his heritage to jackals of the desert.”
