Chapter 39

Prophecy against Gog—Invaders Destroyed

1 “And ayou, son of man, prophesy against Gog and say, ‘Thus says the Lord 1God, “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, 2prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal;

2 and I will turn you around, drive you on, take you up from the remotest parts of the north and bring you against the mountains of Israel.

3 “I will astrike your bow from your left hand and dash down your arrows from your right hand.

4 “You will afall on the mountains of Israel, you and all your troops and the peoples who are with you; I will give you as bfood to every 1kind of predatory bird and beast of the field.

5 “You will fall on the 1open field; for it is I who have spoken,” declares the Lord God.

6 “And I will send afire upon Magog and those who inhabit the bcoastlands in safety; and they will know that I am the Lord.

7 “My aholy name I will make known in the midst of My people Israel; and I will not let My holy name be bprofaned anymore. And the cnations will know that I am the Lord, the dHoly One in Israel.

8 “Behold, it is coming and it shall be done,” declares the Lord God. “That is the day of which I have spoken.

9 “Then those who inhabit the cities of Israel will ago out and make bfires with the weapons and burn them, both shields and bucklers, bows and arrows, war clubs and spears, and for seven years they will make fires of them.

10 “They will not take wood from the field or gather firewood from the forests, for they will make fires with the weapons; and they will take the spoil of those who despoiled them and seize the aplunder of those who plundered them,” declares the Lord God.

11 “On that day I will give Gog a burial ground there in Israel, the valley of those who pass by east of the sea, and it will block off those who would pass by. So they will bury Gog there with all his 1horde, and they will call it the valley of 2Hamon-gog.

12 “For seven months the house of Israel will be burying them in order to acleanse the land.

13 “Even all the people of the land will bury them; and it will be 1to their arenown on the day that I bglorify Myself,” declares the Lord God.

14 “They will set apart men who will constantly pass through the land, aburying those who were passing through, even those left on the surface of the ground, in order to cleanse it. At the end of seven months they will make a search.

15 “As those who pass through the land pass through and anyone sees a man’s bone, then he will 1set up a marker by it until the buriers have buried it in the valley of 2Hamon-gog.

16 “And even the name of the city will be Hamonah. So they will cleanse the land.” ’

17 “As for you, son of man, thus says the Lord God, ‘Speak to every 1kind of abird and to every abeast of the field, “Assemble and come, gather from every side to My sacrifice which I am going to bsacrifice for you, as a great sacrifice on the mountains of Israel, that you may eat flesh and drink blood.

18 “You will aeat the flesh of mighty men and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, as though they were brams, lambs, goats and cbulls, all of them fatlings of dBashan.

19 “So you will eat fat until you are glutted, and drink blood until you are drunk, from My sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.

20 “You will be glutted at My table with ahorses and charioteers, with mighty men and all the men of war,” declares the Lord God.

21 “And I will set My aglory among the nations; and all the nations will see My judgment which I have executed and My hand which I have laid on them.

22 “And the house of Israel will aknow that I am the Lord their God from that day onward.

23 “The nations will know that the house of Israel went into exile for their ainiquity because they acted treacherously against Me, and I bhid My face from them; so I gave them into the hand of their adversaries, and all of them fell by the sword.

24 “aAccording to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions I dealt with them, and I hid My face from them.” ’ ”

Israel Restored

25 Therefore thus says the Lord God, “Now I will 1arestore the fortunes of Jacob and have mercy on the whole bhouse of Israel; and I will be cjealous for My holy name.

26 “They will 1aforget their disgrace and all their treachery which they 2perpetrated against Me, when they blive securely on their own land with cno one to make them afraid.

27 “When I abring them back from the peoples and gather them from the lands of their enemies, then I shall be bsanctified 1through them in the sight of the many nations.

28 “Then they will know that I am the Lord their God because I made them go into exile among the nations, and then gathered them again to their own land; and I will leave none of them there any longer.

29 “I will not hide My face from them any longer, for I will have apoured out My Spirit on the house of Israel,” declares the Lord God.
