Has he struck them down as he struck down those who struck them?
    Or have they been killed as their killers were killed?
By expulsion,[a] by exile you struggled against them;
    with his fierce blast he removed them in the day of the east wind.
Therefore by this the guilt of Jacob will be expiated,
    and this will be the full fruit of the removal of his sin:
when he makes all the stones of the altars
    like chalkstones crushed to pieces,
    no sacred poles[b] or incense altars will remain standing.
