Wherever you live, the towns will be laid waste and the high places demolished, so that your altars will be laid waste and devastated, your idols smashed and ruined, your incense altars broken down, and what you have made wiped out.
In all your dwellingplaces the cities shall be laid waste, and the high places shall be desolate; that your altars may be laid waste and made desolate, and your idols may be broken and cease, and your images may be cut down, and your works may be abolished.
Wherever you dwell, the cities shall be waste and the high places ruined, so that your altars will be waste and ruined, your idols broken and destroyed, your incense altars cut down, and your works wiped out.
Wherever you live there will be desolation, and I will destroy your pagan shrines. Your altars will be demolished, your idols will be smashed, your places of worship will be torn down, and all the religious objects you have made will be destroyed.
In all your dwelling places your cities shall be laid

wherever they had cities and places to dwell in; the idolatry

2:28 ) ; and the high places shall be

) ; that your altars may be laid waste and
as they must be, the cities being destroyed in which they were
set up: and your idols may be broken and cease, and your
images may be cut down;
such as were made of gold and silver, or of wood and stone; the
same words are used for them as in ( Ezekiel 6:4 ) ;
and your works may be abolished;
not only the works of their hands, but of their brain; whatever
they had devised, and was contrary to the pure word and worship
