you should take your dog to the vet for a checkup. could be a urinary tract infection. sudden and out of the ordinary behaviors can be the result of illness or stress.

Also, might I add, you can't "punish" your dog AFTER he has peed in the bed. Unless you catch him IN THE ACT all you're doing is scaring your pet. He is not human; Therefore, he will have NO idea why you're yelling and why you're upset. Keep that in mind.

I agree to have the vet take a look at him to rule out anything like a bladder infection. Does he only do it in your bed or does he do it other places, if other places are they where he sleeps. Some dogs can get incontenant(spelling), pee in their sleep and they don't know they are doing it. If everything at the vet checks out ok is there something in the home that has changed that could be upsetting him?

He does NOT know. All he knows is that his owner is upset, and he's either acting submissive to apease your anger, or he's acting out of fear because he doesn't understand why he's being scolded. It's exactly the same as if your dog ripped apart your garbage while you were out. You walk through the door a few hours later, and he recognises your body language as angry, so he becomes afraid or submissive, and will likely run away and hide. He does not associate it to his scrounging through the garbage (or peeing on your bed), that he did hours ago. Don't mistake this behavior as "he knows", as he fully well does not.

Take him to a vet, if you think something might be wrong medically, or contact a behavioral specialist. But don't blame the dog.
