38 The word of the Lord came to me: 2 “Son of man, set your face against Gog,r of the land of Magog,s the chief prince ofa Meshek and Tubal;t prophesy against him 3 and say: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against you, Gog, chief prince ofb Meshek and Tubal.u 4 I will turn you around, put hooksv in your jaws and bring you out with your whole army—your horses, your horsemen fully armed, and a great horde with large and small shields, all of them brandishing their swords.w 5 Persia, Cushc x and Puty will be with them, all with shields and helmets, 6 also Gomerz with all its troops, and Beth Togarmaha from the far northb with all its troops—the many nations with you.
7 “ ‘Get ready; be prepared,c you and all the hordes gathered about you, and take command of them. 8 After many daysd you will be called to arms. In future years you will invade a land that has recovered from war, whose people were gathered from many nationse to the mountains of Israel, which had long been desolate. They had been brought out from the nations, and now all of them live in safety.f 9 You and all your troops and the many nations with you will go up, advancing like a storm;g you will be like a cloudh covering the land.i
