He will be angry as in the Valley of (B)Gibeon—
That He may do His work, (C)His awesome work,
And bring to pass His act, His [a]unusual act.
22 Now therefore, do not be mockers,
Lest your bonds be made strong;
For I have heard from the Lord God of hosts,
(D)A [b]destruction determined even upon the whole earth.
