39 Therefore, athou son of man, aprophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord God; aBehold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: 2 bAnd I will turn thee back, and ||cleave but the sixth part of thee, and dwill cause thee to come up from †the north parts, and will bring thee upon ethe mountains of Israel: 3 And fI will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand. 4 gThou shalt fall upon ethe mountains of Israel, thou, and hall thy bands, hand the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto ithe ravenous birds of every †sort, and to kthe beasts of the field †to be devoured. 5 Thou shalt fall upon †the open field: for lI have spoken it, saith the Lord God. 6 And mI will send a fire on nMagog, and among them that odwell ||carelessly in pthe isles: qand they shall know that I am the Lord. 7 rSo will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not slet them pollute my holy name any more: and qtthe heathen shall know that I am uthe Lord, the Holy One in Israel.
8 vBehold, it is come, and vwit is done, saith the Lord God; this is the day xwhereof I have spoken. 9 And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and xxshall set on fire and yburn zthe weapons, both zzthe shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the ||handstaves, and the spears, and they shall ||burn them with fire seven years: 10 So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall burn zthe weapons with fire: and athey shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord God. 11 And it shall come to pass in bthat day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the ||noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of ||Hamon-gog. 12 And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, cthat they may cleanse the land. 13 Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them da renown the day that eI shall be glorified, saith the Lord God. 14 And they shall sever out †men of continual employment, passing through the land to bury fwith the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth, cto cleanse it: after the end of gseven months shall they search. 15 And fthe passengers that pass through the land, when any seeth a man’s bone, then shall he †set up ha sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in ithe valley of Hamon-gog. 16 And also the name of the city shall be ||Hamonah. cThus shall they cleanse the land.
17 And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord God; jSpeak †kunto every feathered fowl, and kto every beast of the field, jlAssemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to mmy ||sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice kupon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood. 18 nYe shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of †goats, of obullocks, all of them fatlings oof Bashan. 19 And ye shall eat fat ptill ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, mof my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you. 20 Thus ye shall be filled at my table nwith qhorses and chariots, nwith mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord God. 21 And eI will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see rmy judgment that I have executed, and rmy hand that I have laid upon them. 22 sSo the house of Israel shall know that I am the Lord their God from bthat day tand forward. 23 And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore uhid I my face from them, and vgave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword. 24 wAccording to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions have I done unto them, and uhid my face from them.
25 Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Now will I xbring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon ythe whole house of Israel, and zwill be jealous for my holy name; 26 After that athey have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they bdwelt safely in their land, and cnone made them afraid. 27 When I have brought them again from the people, and degathered them out of their enemies’ lands, and dfam sanctified in them in the sight of many nations; 28 Then gshall they know that I am the Lord their God, †which caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have hgathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there. 29 iNeither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have kpoured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord God.
