Gog and Allies Attack Israel
1Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 2#Ezek. 39:1“Son of man, #Ezek. 35:2, 3set your face against #Ezek. 38:1—39:24; Rev. 20:8Gog, of the land of #Gen. 10:2; Ezek. 39:6; Rev. 20:8Magog, the prince of Rosh, #Ezek. 32:26Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him, 3and say, ‘Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal. 4#2 Kin. 19:28; Ezek. 29:4I will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws, and #Is. 43:17lead you out, with all your army, horses, and horsemen, #Ezek. 23:12all splendidly clothed, a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords. 5Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; 6#Gen. 10:2Gomer and all its troops; the house of #Gen. 10:3; Ezek. 27:14Togarmah from the far north and all its troops—many people are with you.
7#Is. 8:9, 10; Jer. 46:3, 4“Prepare yourself and be ready, you and all your companies that are gathered about you; and be a guard for them. 8#Deut. 4:30; Is. 24:22After many days #Is. 29:6you will be visited. In the latter years you will come into the land of those brought back from the sword #Ezek. 34:13and gathered from many people on #Ezek. 36:1, 4the mountains of Israel, which had long been desolate; they were brought out of the nations, and now all of them #Jer. 23:6; Ezek. 34:25; 39:26dwell safely. 9You will ascend, coming #Is. 28:2like a storm, covering the #Jer. 4:13land 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: 11You will say, ‘I will go up against a land of #Zech. 2:4unwalled villages; I will #Jer. 49:31go to a peaceful people, #Ezek. 38:8who dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates’— 12to take plunder and to take booty, to stretch out your hand against the waste places that are again inhabited, #Ezek. 38:8and against a people gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell in the midst of the land. 13#Ezek. 27:22Sheba, #Ezek. 27:15, 20Dedan, the merchants #Ezek. 27:12of Tarshish, and all #Ezek. 19:3, 5their 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: #Is. 4:1“On that day when My people Israel #Jer. 23:6; Ezek. 38:8, 11; (Zech. 2:5, 8)dwell safely, will you not know it? 15#Ezek. 39:2Then 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. 16You 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 #Ezek. 35:11know Me, when I am #Is. 5:16; 8:13; 29:23; Ezek. 28:22hallowed in you, O Gog, before their eyes.” 17Thus 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. 19For #Deut. 32:21, 22; Ps. 18:7, 8; Ezek. 36:5, 6; (Nah. 1:2); Heb. 12:29in My jealousy #Ps. 89:46and in the fire of My wrath I have spoken: #Joel 3:16; Hag. 2:6, 7; Rev. 16:18‘Surely in that day there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel, 20so that #Hos. 4:3the 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. #Jer. 4:24; Nah. 1:5, 6The mountains shall be thrown down, the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.’ 21I will #Ps. 105:16call for #Ezek. 14:17a sword against Gog throughout all My mountains,” says the Lord God. #Judg. 7:22; 1 Sam. 14:20; 2 Chr. 20:23; Hag. 2:22“Every man’s sword will be against his brother. 22And I will #Is. 66:16; Jer. 25:31bring him to judgment with #Ezek. 5:17pestilence and bloodshed; #Ps. 11:6; Is. 30:30; Ezek. 13:11I will rain down on him, on his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him, flooding rain, #Rev. 16:21great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. 23Thus I will magnify Myself and #Ezek. 36:23sanctify Myself, #Ps. 9:16; Ezek. 37:28; 38:16and I will be known in the eyes of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the Lord.” ’
