"You scandalous old hypocrite!" she replied. "Are you not afraid
of being carried away bodily, whenever you mention the devil's
name? I warn you to refrain from provoking me, or I'll ask your
abduction as a special favour. Stop, look here, Joseph," she continued,
taking a long, dark book from a shelf. "I'll show you how far
I've progressed in the Black Art—I shall soon be competent to
make a clear house of it.
The red cow didn't die by chance; and
your rheumatism can hardly be reckoned among providential
visitations!"

来自Wuthering Heights第二章。

make a clear house of it,在这里是不是“都学会”,“穷尽知识”的意思?谢谢!

===========================================================================

参考译文:
你这满嘴胡言的伪君子!你提到魔鬼名字的时候,不怕被魔鬼带走吗?我警告你别招惹我,不然我就祈求魔鬼把你拐走。停下,看这,约瑟夫。

(她从书架上取下一本幽暗的长条书,继续说)

我要让你看看我在巫术上的进步,不用多久我就能统统学会了。那头红色的奶牛不是无缘无故死掉的;你的风湿病也不能算是神意的造访。

似乎這是說用巫術將這房子變得純淨,也就是把房子的污點清除掉。

多谢。从后面的两个句子来看,应该是这个意思。
