NET © Notes

tn Heb “and I loved Jacob, but Esau I hated.” The context indicates this is technical covenant vocabulary in which “love” and “hate” are synonymous with “choose” and “reject” respectively (see Deut 7:8; Jer 31:3; Hos 3:1; 9:15; 11:1).

tn Heb “his”; the referent (Esau) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

tn Heb “I set his mountains as a desolation.”

tn Or “inheritance” (so NIV, NLT).
