Ezekiel 38

1 And the word of יהוה came unto me, saying,

2 “Son of man, set your face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,

3 And say, ‘Thus saith Lord (Adonai) יהוה: “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal.

4 And I will turn you back, and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you forth, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords.

5 Iran (Persia, Paras), Ethiopia (Kush), and Libya (Put) with them; all of them with shield and helmet;

6 Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands; and many people with you.

7 Be you prepared, and prepare for yourself, you, and all your company that are assembled unto you, and be you a guard unto them.

8 After many days you shalt be visited; in the latter years you shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Yisrael, which have been always waste; but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.

9 You shalt ascend and come like a storm, you shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, you, and all your bands, and many people with you.”

10 Thus saith Lord (Adonai) יהוה: “It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into your mind, and you shalt think an evil thought:

11 And you shalt say, ‘I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,’

12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn your hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.

13 Sheva, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto you, Are you come to take a spoil? Have you gathered your company to take a prey? To carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?’”’

14 Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, ‘Thus saith Lord (Adonai) יהוה: “In that day when My people of Yisrael dwelleth safely, shalt you not know it?

15 And you shalt come from your place out of the north parts, you, and many people with you, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army.

16 And you shalt come up against My people of Yisrael, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring you against My land, that the nations may know Me, when I shall be sanctified in you, O Gog, before their eyes.”

17 Thus saith Lord (Adonai) יהוה: “Are you he of whom I have spoken in old time by My servants the prophets of Yisrael, which prophesied in those days many years that I would bring you against them?

18 And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Yisrael,” saith Lord (Adonai) יהוה, “that My fury shall come up in My face.

19 For in My jealousy and in the fire of My wrath have I spoken: ‘Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Yisrael;

20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.’

21 “And I will call for a sword against him throughout all My mountains,” saith Lord (Adonai) יהוה. “Every man’s sword shall be against his brother.

22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.

23 Thus will I magnify Myself, and sanctify Myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am יהוה.”’
