Conflicts between Israel and Edom can be traced to the birth of their ancestors, Jacob and Esau. Through the ages, their relationship has not changed. Possibly the major causes of conflict were economic. The Edomites joined Babylonian forces in the siege and capture of Judah. They then sieged the land that was left desolate.
