(A)Has He struck [a]Israel as He struck those who struck him?
Or has He been slain according to the slaughter of those who were slain by Him?
(B)In measure, by sending it away,
You contended with it.
(C)He removes it by His rough wind
In the day of the east wind.
Therefore by this the iniquity of Jacob will be covered;
And this is all the fruit of taking away his sin:
When he makes all the stones of the altar
Like chalkstones that are beaten to dust,
[b]Wooden images and incense altars shall not stand.
