Will the Lord hurt Israel as he hurt others who hurt them?
Will he kill them as he killed others?
He punished Israel by sending it away.
        He removed it with a fierce blast from the east winds.[a]
In this way the wrongdoings of the descendants of Jacob are covered up.
This is the way they will turn from their sins—
    when they turn all the altar stones into powdered chalk
        and no poles dedicated to the goddess Asherah
            or incense altars are left standing.
