The prophet shews in these verses (ver. 2–5) how much Jacob and the Israelites were favoured by Jehovah, more than Esau and the Edomites. Through every period of the history of Jacob’s posterity, they could not deny that God had remarkably appeared on their behalf; but he had rendered the heritage of Esau’s descendants, by wars and various other means, barren and waste for ever. De. 7:6–8; 10:15; 32:8–14. Is. 41:8, 9; 43:4. Je. 31:3. Ro. 11:28, 29.
