You disputed with Israel
by banishing and driving her away.[a]

on the day of the east wind.

and the result of the removal of his sin will be this:(B)

10 For the fortified city will be desolate,
pastures deserted and abandoned like a wilderness.
Calves will graze there,
and there they will spread out and strip its branches.
