but I have hated Esau, and I have made his mountains a desolation and appointed his inheritance for the jackals of the wilderness."
Though Edom says, "We have been beaten down, but we will return and build up the ruins"; thus says the LORD of hosts, "They may build, but I will tear down; and men will call them the wicked territory, and the people toward whom the LORD is indignant forever."
