Isaiah 27:7-9 Young's Literal Translation (YLT)

As the smiting of his smiter hath He smitten him? As the slaying of his slain doth He slay?

In measure, in sending it forth, thou strivest with it, He hath taken away by His sharp wind, In the day of an east wind,

Therefore by this is the iniquity of Jacob covered, And this [is] all the fruit -- To take away his sin, in His setting all the stones of an altar, As chalkstones beaten in pieces, They rise not -- shrines and images.

Isaiah 27:7-9 New International Version (NIV)

Has the Lord struck her
    as he struck down those who struck her?
Has she been killed
    as those were killed who killed her?
By warfare[a] and exile you contend with her—
    with his fierce blast he drives her out,
    as on a day the east wind blows.
By this, then, will Jacob’s guilt be atoned for,
    and this will be the full fruit of the removal of his sin:
When he makes all the altar stones
    to be like limestone crushed to pieces,
no Asherah poles[b] or incense altars
    will be left standing.
