Exactly what you thought. Nobody can question God. He knew what both of them were capable of doing even their descendants as well.

God didnt love everybody in the Bible. That scripture makes it clear especially about Esau.

I think the scripture means exactly what it says. It does not say that it wasn't speaking about the two as individuals. It calls them by name. In fact it does not say anything at all about the descendants, however I feel that this certainly is true. For we have seen both at enemy with each other for thousands of years now. Why can't people just believe God's word? Why do they have to insert man made doctrine. My advise is just read and believe Gods word and understand the final warning to man at the end of the Holy Bible to people who change (add to, or take away) the true words of God. The true word of God has no copywrite in the front of the bible. In fact, God wants us to spread that word by mouth, or written. Anyway that we can is ok with Him. Try using the other versions and if you take donations or receive any money for your publications prepare to go to court and be sued. God himself has preserved the true Word of God until this day, and even though it is far down the list on all other versions that pop up when using Google search, I am convinced that it is for settled in Heaven and will stand the test of time. It makes me sick when anyone tries to tell me a scripture does not mean exactly what it says.
Nevertheless, I love you and pray that the Lord will bless you.
