Wesley's Notes for Malachi 1:3

1:3 I hated - I loved not Esau's posterity as I loved Jacob's. His heritage - Mount Seir with the neighbouring mountains. Waste - By Nebuchadnezzar's arms five years after the sacking of Jerusalem, and whereas Jacob's captivity returned, and their cities were rebuilt, Esau's never were. The dragons - Creatures which delight in desolate places, by which the utter desolation of Esau is signified.

Lionel's comment on 2014-01-27 14:07:34:

You would have to know the character of this individual. Esau hated his birthright and God knew it. Esau only thought of himself. He didn't care about what the Father cared about. Flesh was his problem. What would you sell your birthright for or your soul? Your heritage is eternal life through Christ Jesus.
