Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated

“Jacob I Loved, Esau I Have Hated.” The passage says that the decision was made before either one were born or had done anything good or bad, that God’s purpose in choosing might stand, the implied point being that neither Esau nor Jacob’s character, intentions or actions were at issue. Seems amazingly counter intuitive but the offense of the passage seems to be the purpose for its presence.
