Did God strike Israel as he struck those who struck him?
    Was Israel killed as his killers were killed?[a]
By frightening Jerusalem, by sending her away,[b]
    you contended with her,
    expelling with a fierce blast
    on the day of the east wind.

    and this was how his sins were finally removed:
    he made all the altar stones like shattered chalk,
    sacred poles[c] and incense altars that couldn’t stand.
