We read at Genesis 26:34-35:“34 And Esau was forty years old when he took to wife Judith the daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and Bashemath the daughter of Elon the Hittite: 35 Which were a grief of mind unto Isaac and to Rebekah.”
Not only “a grief of mind unto Isaac and Rebekah”, but a “grief of mind” unto Yahweh Almighty Himself. And for good rea- son, for at Malachi 1:2-3 it assuredly states:“2 I have loved you, saith Yahweh. Yet ye say, Wherein hast thou loved us? Was not Esau Jacob’s brother? saith Yahweh: yet I loved Jacob, 3 And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness.”
It is essential to recognize that Esau’s two Hittite wives were descended from the ten cursed Canaanite nations of, Gen. 15:19-21, especially the Kenites, who are traceable to Cain who murdered Abel, and the Rephaim, who were descended from giants. Thus, not only did Yahweh hate Esau, but it is also stated of Edom at Psalm 137:9:“Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.”(cf. v. 7.)
There are many references to the conversion of the Edom- ites to Judaism besides Josephus’ Antiq. 13:9:1. There are also The Zondervan Pictorial Encyclopedia Of The Bible, vol. H-L, pp. 41-42;The Interpreter’s Dictionary Of The Bible, vol. E-J, p. 530;The History Of The Jews by Heinrich Graetz, vol. 2, p. 7; The Dictionary Of The New Testament, “Christ and the Gospels” by James Hastings, vol. 1, p. 776, to name a few.

John Clark Ridpath, in his 3-volume History Of The World, cites the Herod family, vol. #1 of 3, p. 848 thusly:
“Nearly all of the Maccabees were brave and virtuous war- riors, who fought and died for the freedom of a country whose internal dissensions and feuds rendered her unworthy of such heroic service. In the latter days of the house, however, the younger ARiSTOBULUS engaged in a disgraceful contest with a second Hyrcanus for the priestly throne. The dispute resulted in calling in Scaurus, the lieutenant of Pompeius the Great, to settle the controversy. In B.C. 63, he decided in favor of Arist- obulus, but the decision was afterwards reversed by Pompeius, who, in order to suppress the rival claimant, took Jerusalem by storm, amid the wildest scenes of carnage. Hyrcanus then be- came high-priest, and Palestine was made tributary to Rome as the price of his recognition.
“As a province of the Roman Empire, Judea was assigned by Julius Caesar to Antipater, who had been the minister of Hyrcanus. His title was procurator. Aristobulus, who had been imprisoned at Rome, made his escape and endeavored to recover his kingdom, but he and his sons perished in the foolish revolt which they had incited. When in B.C. 53 Crassus was overthrown by the Parthians, Antigonus conquered and captured Hyrcanus; but his success had no abiding root. For in the mean time Herod,son of Antipater, being in Rome, had obtained the favor of the First Triumvirate, and now returned to Palestine backed by the support of that powerful combination. He succeeded in establishing a new dynasty, known as the Idumæan, and obtained for himself – though for what reason has never sufficiently appeared – the title of Great. His inordinate vanity, his cruelty, his uncurbed passions, and his base servitude to Rome, constituted his entire claim to the epithet with which he has been honored. He proved to be an unscrupulous sycophant and bloody assassin of his betters ... After the death of Herod his dominions were divided among his three sons: Archelaus, Philip, and Herod Antipas ....”
These Edomite-Satanic-Devils have not gone away, but are with us still today, and churchianity, and most all of our politicians are parading them as, “God’s chosen people” and “our best friends”! The Prophet Isaiah prophesied well at Isa. 28:14-16 where he stated: “14 Wherefore hear the word of Yahweh, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem. 15 Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves: 16 Therefore thus saith Yahweh Almighty, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.”
The old Jerusalem is not the New Jerusalem, so the words of the prophet are still in force at our present time. Surely, “We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement ...”
Exodus 23:32-33 instructs us not to make covenants (i.e., treaties, etc.) with any nonwhite or racially-mixed people:
“32 Thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor with their gods. 33 They shall not dwell in thy land, lest they make thee sin against me: for if thou serve their gods, it will surely be a snare unto thee.”
