Verses 4-5

Malachi 1:4-5. Edom saith, We are empoverished, [or, brought low, ] but we will return and build the desolate places This they accordingly did, as we learn from the history of those times; and undoubtedly thought to become a flourishing people again, and to continue so. But God had determined otherwise, as is here declared. Thus saith the Lord, They shall build, but I will throw down This was accordingly done by God’s giving success, first to the arms of Judas Maccabæus, and afterward to those of Hyrcanus, by whom Edom was spoiled and laid waste again. And they shall call them, The border of wickedness They shall be called, or accounted by others, a wicked nation, or a country of wicked men, and therefore deservedly laid waste. And ye shall say, The Lord will be magnified Or, rather, Let the Lord be magnified; from the border of Israel Namely, from that border which extended even to Idumea.
