20 Your bed is too short,
    your blanket too skimpy.[a]

21 The Lord will fiercely attack
as he did at Mount Perazim[b]
    and in Gibeon Valley.[c]
But this time the Lord
will do something surprising,
    not what you expect.
22 So you had better stop sneering
or you will be in worse shape
    than ever before.
I heard the Lord All-Powerful
threaten the whole country
    with destruction.
