in the midst of the land of Egypt.

for the blood that they had shed upon the land,
and for their idols wherewith they had polluted it:

and ye shall be clean:
from all your filthiness,
and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.

Eze 37:23 Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols,
nor with their detestable things,
nor with any of their transgressions:

and I will be their God.

when Israel went astray,
which went astray away from me after their idols;
they shall even bear their iniquity.

What have I to do any more with idols?

and the diviners have seen a lie,
and have told false dreams; they comfort in vain:
therefore they went their way as a flock,
they were troubled, because there was no shepherd.

the sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye:
his arm shall be clean dried up,
and his right eye shall be utterly darkened.

Zec 13:2 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts,
that I will cut off the names of the idols out of the land,
