7 Has he struck them as he struck those who struck them? Or have they been slain as their slayers were slain? 8 Measure by measure,[a] by exile you contended with them; he removed them with his fierce breath[b] in the day of the east wind. 9 Therefore by this the guilt of Jacob will be atoned for, and this will be the full fruit of the removal of his sin:[c] when he makes all the stones of the altars like chalkstones crushed to pieces, no Asherim or incense altars will remain standing. 10 For the fortified city is solitary, a habitation deserted and forsaken, like the wilderness; there the calf grazes; there it lies down and strips its branches. 11 When its boughs are dry, they are broken; women come and make a fire of them. For this is a people without discernment; therefore he who made them will not have compassion on them; he who formed them will show them no favor.
12 In that day from the river Euphrates[d] to the Brook of Egypt the Lord will thresh out the grain, and you will be gleaned one by one, O people of Israel.13 And in that day a great trumpet will be blown, and those who were lost in the land of Assyria and those who were driven out to the land of Egypt will come and worship the Lord on the holy mountain at Jerusalem.
Isaiah 27:8Or By driving her away; the meaning of the Hebrew word is uncertain
