Isaiah 28:21-22

Context

28:21 For the Lord will rise up, as he did at Mount Perazim, 1 

he will rouse himself, as he did in the Valley of Gibeon, 2 

to accomplish his work,

his peculiar work,

to perform his task,

his strange task. 3 

28:22 So now, do not mock,

or your chains will become heavier!

For I have heard a message about decreed destruction,

from the sovereign master, the Lord who commands armies, against the entire land. 4 

1 sn This probably alludes to David’s victory over the Philistines at Baal Perazim. See 2 Sam 5:20.

2 sn This probably alludes to the Lord’s victory over the Canaanites at Gibeon, during the days of Joshua. See Josh 10:10-11.

3 sn God’s judgment of his own people is called “his peculiar work” and “his strange task,” because he must deal with them the way he treated their enemies in the past.

4 tn Or “the whole earth” (KJV, ASV, NAB, NCV).
