Isaiah 27:8-10 Living Bible (TLB)

7-8 Has God punished Israel as much as he has punished her enemies? No, for he has devastated her enemies,[a] while he has punished Israel but a little, exiling her far from her own land as though blown away in a storm from the east. And why did God do it? It was to purge away[b] her sins, to rid her of all her idol altars and her idols. They will never be worshiped again. 10 Her walled cities will be silent and empty, houses abandoned, streets grown up with grass, cows grazing through the city munching on twigs and branches.


  1. Isaiah 27:7 devastated her enemies, implied.
  2. Isaiah 27:9 purge away, literally, “atone for.”
