(A)Has he struck them (B)as he struck those who struck them?
    Or have they been slain (C)as their slayers were slain?
(D)Measure by measure,[a] by exile you contended with them;
    (E)he removed them with his fierce breath[b] in the day of the east wind.
Therefore by this (F)the guilt of Jacob will be atoned for,
    and this will be the full fruit of the removal of his sin:[c]
(G)when he makes all the stones of the altars
    like chalk-stones crushed to pieces,
    no (H)Asherim or incense altars will remain standing.
