They set up sacred pillars and Asherah poles on every high hill and under every green tree.
He will demolish the sacred pillars in the temple of the sun 1 in Egypt and will burn down the temples of the gods of Egypt.”’”
Israel was a fertile vine that yielded fruit. As his fruit multiplied, he multiplied altars to Baal. 1 As his land prospered, they adorned the fertility pillars.
