20 For the bed is too short to stretch out on,[a]
    and the covering is too narrow when wrapping oneself.
21 For Yahweh will rise up as at Mount Perazim;
    he will rave as in the valley at Gibeon
to do his deed—his deed is strange—
    and to work his work—his work is alien!

    or your bonds will be strong,

for I have heard from the Lord, Yahweh of hosts:

complete destruction
    decreed upon all the land.
