    The Jews later realized that they needed reformation and cleansing :

    Quote.
    “It was, however, in Alexandria that Jewish Hellenism reached its greatest development. Here, freed from the national bonds which held it firmly to tradition in Palestine, Hellenistic Judaism became more Hellenistic than Jewish.
    It is not true to say…that Hellenism had no appreciable influence upon the development of Judaism; its influence was appreciable for many centuries; but it was driven out of the Jewish camp by the national sentiment aroused in the Maccabean and Bar Kokba revolts, and in forming the bridge between Judaism and Christianity it lost whatever permanent influence it might have possessed.
    Since that time, even in Egypt, the classical home of Hellenism, rabbinical Jewish communities have flourished that have borne no perceptible trace of the movement which made Alexandria great…”Unquote

    Yet it was far from their religion being reverted to the pure teachings of Moses.
    The fresh and sweet water of Revelation that descended on Moses from G-d was mixed with the saline and bitter impurities of paganism etc.
    This is what is being discussed in the context verses (of verse [9:30]).
