Ezek 38:18–23

38:18–23 God Himself will be Israel’s defender. In passages describing the appearance of God as a divine warrior, the prophets commonly speak of a corresponding convulsion in the created order; creation dissolves into primeval chaos (32:6–8 note; Is. 13:13; 24:18–20; Jer. 4:23–26; Joel 2:10, 30, 31; Hag. 2:6, 7, 21; 3:16; cf. Judg. 5:4; Ps. 18:8; 46:3; 77:16–19).
