20 For the bed shall be too short to stretch out in,
    and the cover too narrow to wrap in.
21 For the Lord shall rise up as on Mount Perazim,
    bestir himself as in the Valley of Gibeon,[a]
To carry out his work—strange his work!
    to perform his deed—alien his deed!
22 Now, cease scoffing,
    lest your bonds be tightened,
For I have heard a decree of destruction
    from the Lord, the God of hosts,
    for the whole land.(A)

Footnotes

  1. 28:21 Mount Perazim…Valley of Gibeon: where David defeated the Philistines; cf. 2 Sm 5:20, 25; 1 Chr 14:11, 16. God’s new work will be strange, because instead of fighting for Judah as the Lord did in David’s time, God will now fight against Jerusalem (see 29:1–4).
