Common English Bible
7 Did God strike Israel as he struck those who struck him?
Was Israel killed as his killers were killed?[a]
8 By frightening Jerusalem, by sending her away,[b]
you contended with her,
expelling with a fierce blast
on the day of the east wind.
9 By this Jacob’s guilt is reconciled,
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.
