Holman Christian Standard Bible
7 Did the Lord strike Israel
as He struck the one who struck Israel?(A)
Was he killed like those killed by Him?
8 You disputed with her
by banishing and driving her away.[a]
He removed her with His severe storm
on the day of the east wind.
9 Therefore Jacob’s iniquity(B) will be purged in this way,
and the result of the removal of his sin will be this:(C)
when he makes all the altar stones
like crushed bits of chalk,
no Asherah poles or incense altars will remain standing.
- Isaiah 27:8 Hb obscure
