Kill them.

And he [Amaziah] did that which was right in the sight of the LORD.... He slew of Edom in the valley of salt ten thousand. 2 Kings 14:3, 7

I will also stretch out mine hand upon Edom, and will cut off man and beast from it. Ezekiel 25:13

Thus saith the Lord GOD concerning Edom.... Arise ye, and let us rise up against her in battle. Obadiah 1

Shall I not in that day, saith the LORD, even destroy the wise men out of Edom, and understanding out of the mount of Esau? ... that every one of the mount of Esau may be cut off by slaughter. Obadiah 8-9
