Eisav you had to know had a good father and a mother. Eisav is blamed only in comparison to what he should have been. But there’s no question Eisav was a very fine gentleman. His father loved him not for nothing.
And still when Hakadosh Baruch Hu looked at Eisav, looked at Sayir Edom, He fell in love with the Am Yisrael. He saw the difference. No matter how good Edom is they cannot compare to the children of Yaakov ish tam, the perfect man. — Asking for Life (Erev Yom Kippur) (#803)
