Will Yahweh hurt Israel as he hurt others who hurt them?
    Will he kill them as he killed others?
He punished Israel by sending it away.
    He removed it with a fierce blast from the east winds.[a]

    when they turn all the altar stones into powdered chalk
        and no poles dedicated to the goddess Asherah
            or incense altars are left standing.
