Tree of Life Version
8 You contended with her by banishing her,
by driving her away.
With His fierce wind He expelled them
on the day of the east wind.
9 So by this will Jacob’s sin be atoned
and this the full price to remove his sin:
When he makes all the altar stones
like shattered chalk stones,
so that the Asherah poles and incense
rise no more.
10 The fortified city is a lonely habitation,
forlorn and forsaken like the desert.
There the calf will graze,
there lie down
and consume its branches.
