Isaiah 27:8-9 NLT
No, but he exiled Israel to call her to account.
She was exiled from her land
as though blown away in a storm from the east.
The LORD did this to purge Israel’s wickedness,
to take away all her sin.
As a result, all the pagan altars will be crushed to dust.
No Asherah pole or pagan shrine will be left standing.
