20 For the bed is too short to stretch out on,
And the covering so narrow that one cannot wrap himself in it.
21 For the Lord will rise up as at Mount (A)Perazim,
He will be angry as in the Valley of (B)Gibeon—
That He may do His work, (C)His awesome work,
And bring to pass His act, His [a]unusual act.
22 Now therefore, do not be mockers,
Lest your bonds be made strong;
For I have heard from the Lord God of hosts,
(D)A [b]destruction determined even upon the whole earth.

    of the destruction decreed(F) against the whole land.(G)
