MSG 15 He will hit Israel hard, as a storm slaps reeds about; he'll pull them up by the roots from this good land of their inheritance, weeding them out, and then scatter them to the four winds. And why? Because they made God so angry with Asherah sex-and-religion shrines. NIV 15 And the LORD will strike Israel, so that it will be like a reed swaying in the water.
