Did God strike Israel as he struck those who struck him?
    Was Israel killed as his killers were killed?[a]
By frightening Jerusalem, by sending her away,[b]

    and this was how his sins were finally removed:
    he made all the altar stones like shattered chalk,
    sacred poles[c] and incense altars that couldn’t stand.
