God is on Mount Perazim

21 For the Lord will stand upon[a] Mount Perazim,[b]
    he will rouse himself in[c] the Valley of Gibeon;
to carry out his work—
    his strange deed,
and to perform his task—
    his alien task!
22 But as for you,[d] don’t start mocking,
    or your chains will become tighter;
for I have heard from the Lord[e] of the Heavenly Armies about destruction,
    and it is decreed against the whole land.

The God who Plows and Harvests

23 “Pay attention!
    Listen to what I have to say;
Pay attention,
    and hear my speech.
