Overview
"It was bad enough that the Babylonians had raped, pillaged, and burnt their way across the Jews' country and taken much of the population into exile. But while the Jews were defenseless, their neighbors in Edom had seized the chance not only to gloat but also to cross the border and take whatever they could get their hands on. Instead of sheltering refugees, Edom had sent them back to be enslaved or killed."
Eugene Peterson

I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you."

(cf. 27:27-40)
"Then when Herod saw that he had been tricked by the magi, he became very enraged, and sent and slew all the male children who were in Bethlehem and all its vicinity, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had determined from the magi."
Matthew 2:16
"And He said, 'I Myself will make all My goodness pass before you, and will proclaim the name of the LORD before you; and I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show compassion on whom I will show compassion.'"
Exodus 33:19
"And not only this, but there was Rebekah also, when she had conceived twins by one man, our father Isaac; for though the twins were not yet born and had not done anything good or bad, so that God's purpose according to His choice would stand, not because of works but because of Him who calls, it was said to her, 'THE OLDER WILL SERVE THE YOUNGER.' Just as it is written, 'JACOB I LOVED, BUT ESAU I HATED.'"
Romans 9:10-13
"He who conceals a transgression seeks love, but he who repeats a matter separates intimate friends."
Proverbs 17:9
"But a Samaritan, who was on a journey, came upon him; and when he saw him, he felt compassion, and came to him and bandaged up his wounds, pouring oil and wine on them; and he put him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn and took care of him. On the next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper and said, 'Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I return I will repay you.' 'Which of these three do you think proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell into the robbers' hands?'"
Luke 10:33-36
"Again I ask: Did they stumble so as to fall beyond recovery? Not at all! Rather, because of their transgression, salvation has come to the Gentiles to make Israel envious. But if their transgression means riches for the world, and their loss means riches for the Gentiles, how much greater riches will their fullness bring!"
Romans 11:11-12
"The pride of your heart has deceived you, you who live in the clefts of the rocks and make your home on the heights, you who say to yourself, 'Who can bring me down to the ground?' ...On the day you stood aloof while strangers carried off his wealth and foreigners entered his gates and cast lots for Jerusalem, you were like one of them."
Obadiah 1:3
"What makes pride so singularly repulsive to God is the way that pride 'contends for supremacy' with God Himself. Pride sets itself in opposition to God. The only fitting response is for God to oppose the proud. That is probably why pride is not simply another sin among many, but a sin in a category of its own. Other sins lead the sinner further
from God
, but pride is particularly heinous in that it attempts to elevate the sinner
above God
."
Jason Meyer
"God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble."
James 4:6
