Has he smitten them as he smote those who smote them?
    Or have they been slain as their slayers were slain?
Measure by measure,[a] by exile thou didst contend with them;
    he removed them with his fierce blast 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 Ashe′rim or incense altars will remain standing.
