God “Divorces” Israel

The Lord has not hurt his people as he hurt their enemies.
    His people have not been killed like those who tried to kill them.
The Lord will settle his argument with Israel by sending it far away.
    Like a hot desert wind, he will drive Israel away.
This is how Israel’s guilt will be forgiven.
    This is how its sins will be taken away.
Israel will crush the rocks of the altar to dust.
    No statues or altars will be left standing for the Asherah idols.
