Gog and Allies Attack Israel

38 Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying, a“Son of man, bset your face against cGog, of the land of dMagog, 1the prince of Rosh, eMeshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him, and say, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal. fI will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws, and glead you out, with all your army, horses, and horsemen, hall splendidly clothed, a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords. Persia, 2Ethiopia, and 3Libya are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; iGomer and all its troops; the house of jTogarmah from the far north and all its troops—many people are with you.

k“Prepare yourself and be ready, you and all your companies that are gathered about you; and be a guard for them. lAfter many days myou will be visited. In the latter years you will come into the land of those brought back from the sword nand gathered from many people on othe mountains of Israel, which had long been desolate; they were brought out of the nations, and now all of them pdwell safely. You will ascend, coming qlike a storm, covering the rland like a cloud, you and all your troops and many peoples with you.”

10 ‘Thus says the Lord God: “On that day it shall come to pass that thoughts will arise in your mind, and you will make an evil plan: 11 You will say, ‘I will go up against a land of sunwalled villages; I will tgo to a peaceful people, uwho dwell 4safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates’—12 to take plunder and to take booty, to stretch out your hand against the waste places that are again inhabited, vand against a people gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell in the midst of the land. 13 wSheba, xDedan, the merchants yof Tarshish, and all ztheir young lions will say to you, ‘Have you come to take plunder? Have you gathered your army to take booty, to carry away silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods, to take great plunder?’ ” ’

14 “Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say to Gog, ‘Thus says the Lord God: a“On that day when My people Israel bdwell safely, will you not know it? 15 cThen you will come from your place out of the far north, you and many peoples with you, all of them riding on horses, a great company and a mighty army. 16 You will come up against My people Israel like a cloud, to cover the land. It will be in the latter days that I will bring you against My land, so that the nations may dknow Me, when I am ehallowed in you, O Gog, before their eyes.” 17 Thus says the Lord God: “Are you he of whom I have spoken in former days by My servants the prophets of Israel, who prophesied for years in those days that I would bring you against them?

Judgment on Gog

18 “And it will come to pass at the same time, when Gog comes against the land of Israel,” says the Lord God, “that My fury will show in My face. 19 For fin My jealousy gand in the fire of My wrath I have spoken: h‘Surely in that day there shall be a great 5earthquake in the land of Israel, 20 so that ithe fish of the sea, the birds of the heavens, the beasts of the field, all creeping things that creep on the earth, and all men who are on the face of the earth shall shake at My presence. jThe mountains shall be thrown down, the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.’ 21 I will kcall for la sword against Gog throughout all My mountains,” says the Lord God. m“Every man’s sword will be against his brother. 22 And I will nbring him to judgment with opestilence and bloodshed; pI will rain down on him, on his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him, flooding rain, qgreat hailstones, fire, and brimstone. 23 Thus I will magnify Myself and rsanctify Myself, sand I will be known in the eyes of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the Lord.” ’

Gog’s Armies Destroyed

39 “And ayou, son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, 1the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal; and I will bturn you around and lead you on, cbringing you up from the far north, and bring you against the mountains of Israel. Then I will knock the bow out of your left hand, and cause the arrows to fall out of your right hand. dYou shall 2fall upon the mountains of Israel, you and all your troops and the peoples who are with you; eI will give you to birds of prey of every sort and to the beasts of the field to be devoured. You shall 3fall on 4the open field; for I have spoken,” says the Lord God. f“And I will send fire on Magog and on those who live 5in security in gthe coastlands. Then they shall know that I am the Lord. hSo I will make My holy name known in the midst of My people Israel, and I will not let them iprofane My holy name anymore. jThen the nations shall know that I am the Lord, the Holy One in Israel. kSurely it is coming, and it shall be done,” says the Lord God. “This is the day lof which I have spoken.

“Then those who dwell in the cities of Israel will go out and set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and bucklers, the bows and arrows, the 6javelins and spears; and they will make fires with them for seven years. 10 They will not take wood from the field nor cut down any from the forests, because they will make fires with the weapons; mand they will plunder those who plundered them, and pillage those who pillaged them,” says the Lord God.

The Burial of Gog

11 “It will come to pass in that day that I will give Gog a burial place there in Israel, the valley of those who pass by east of the sea; and it will obstruct travelers, because there they will bury Gog and all his multitude. Therefore they will call it the Valley of 7Hamon Gog. 12 For seven months the house of Israel will be burying them, nin order to cleanse the land. 13 Indeed all the people of the land will be burying, and they will gain orenown for it on the day that pI am glorified,” says the Lord God. 14 “They will set apart men regularly employed, with the help of 8a search party, to pass through the land and bury those bodies remaining on the ground, in order qto cleanse it. At the end of seven months they will make a search. 15 The search party will pass through the land; and when anyone sees a man’s bone, he shall 9set up a marker by it, till the buriers have buried it in the Valley of Hamon Gog. 16 The name of the city will also be 1Hamonah. Thus they shall rcleanse the land.” ’

A Triumphant Festival

17 “And as for you, son of man, thus says the Lord God, s‘Speak to every sort of bird and to every beast of the field:

t“Assemble yourselves and come;

Gather together from all sides to My usacrificial meal

Which I am sacrificing for you,

A great sacrificial meal von the mountains of Israel,

That you may eat flesh and drink blood.

18 wYou shall eat the flesh of the mighty,

Drink the blood of the princes of the earth,

Of rams and lambs,

Of goats and bulls,

All of them xfatlings of Bashan.

19 You shall eat fat till you are full,

And drink blood till you are drunk,

At My sacrificial meal

Which I am sacrificing for you.

20 yYou shall be filled at My table

With horses and riders,

zWith mighty men

And with all the men of war,” says the Lord God.

Israel Restored to the Land

21 a“I will set My glory among the nations; all the nations shall see My judgment which I have executed, and bMy hand which I have laid on them. 22 cSo the house of Israel shall know that I am the Lord their God from that day forward. 23 dThe Gentiles shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity; because they were unfaithful to Me, therefore eI hid My face from them. I fgave them into the hand of their enemies, and they all fell by the sword. 24 gAccording to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions I have dealt with them, and hidden My face from them.” ’

25 “Therefore thus says the Lord God: h‘Now I will bring back the captives of Jacob, and have mercy on the iwhole house of Israel; and I will be jealous for My holy name—26 jafter they have borne their shame, and all their unfaithfulness in which they were unfaithful to Me, when they kdwelt safely in their own land and no one made them afraid. 27 lWhen I have brought them back from the peoples and gathered them out of their enemies’ lands, and I mam hallowed in them in the sight of many nations, 28 nthen they shall know that I am the Lord their God, who sent them into captivity among the nations, but also brought them back to their land, and left none of them 2captive any longer. 29 oAnd I will not hide My face from them anymore; for I shall have ppoured out My Spirit on the house of Israel,’ says the Lord God.”
