21 For the Lord shall stand as in mount [b]Perazim: he shall be wroth as in the valley [c]of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work, and bring to pass his act, his strange act.

22 Now therefore be no mockers, lest your bonds increase: for I have heard of the Lord of hosts a consumption, even determined upon the whole earth.
