Has he struck Israel the way he struck those who struck them?
Have they been killed the same way those who killed them were killed?
When you drive them away[a] and send them into exile,
you make your case against them.
He drives them out with his violent storm,
as on a day when the hot east wind blows.

and this will be all the fruit that results from taking away his sin.
He will make all the altar stones like chalk that has been crushed,
and no Asherah poles or incense altars will remain standing.
