21 “Judah, you felt safe, but I warned you.
    I warned you, but you refused to listen.
You have lived like this from the time you were young.
    And from the time you were young,
    you have not obeyed me, Judah.
22 Judah, the punishment I give will come like a storm,
    and it will blow all your shepherds away.
You thought some of the other nations would help you.
    But these nations will also be defeated.
Then you will really be disappointed.
    You will be ashamed of all the evil things you did.

23 “King, you seem so safe in your palace of cedar.
    It’s as if you live in Lebanon![a]
But when your punishment comes, you will groan.
    You will be in pain like a woman giving birth!”
