Malachi 1:2-3

The  Lord’s Love for Israel

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