Prophecy About Gog’s Judgment

39 “Now as for (A)you, son of man, prophesy against Gog and say, ‘Thus says Lord Yahweh, “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, [a]chief prince of Meshech and Tubal; 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. And I will (B)strike your bow from your left hand and cause your arrows from your right hand to fall. You will (C)fall on the mountains of Israel, you and all your troops and the peoples who are with you; I will give you as (D)food to every [b]kind of predatory bird and beast of the field. You will fall on the [c]open field; for it is I who have spoken,” declares Lord Yahweh. “And I will send (E)fire upon Magog and those who inhabit the (F)coastlands securely; and they will know that I am Yahweh.

“And My (G)holy name I will make known in the midst of My people Israel; and I will not let My holy name be (H)profaned anymore. And the (I)nations will know that I am Yahweh, the (J)Holy One in Israel. Behold, it is coming, and it shall be done,” declares Lord Yahweh. “That is the day of which I have spoken.

“Then those who inhabit the cities of Israel will (K)go out and make (L)fires with the weapons and burn them, both shields and large shields, bows and arrows, war clubs and spears; and for seven years they will make fires of them. 10 They will not carry 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 made them into spoil and seize the (M)plunder of those who plundered them,” declares Lord Yahweh.

11 “And it will be in that day, that 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 multitude, and they will call it the valley of [d]Hamon-gog. 12 And for seven months the house of Israel will be burying them in order to (N)cleanse the land. 13 Even all the people of the land will bury them; and it will be [e]unto their (O)name on the day that I (P)glorify Myself,” declares Lord Yahweh. 14 “Now they will set apart men who will continually pass through the land, (Q)burying 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 And those who pass through the land will pass through, and when anyone sees a man’s bone, he will [f]set up a marker by it until the buriers have buried it in the valley of [g]Hamon-gog. 16 And even the name of the city will be Hamonah. So they will cleanse the land.”’

17 “Now as for you, son of man, thus says Lord Yahweh, ‘Say to every [h]kind of (R)bird and to every (S)beast of the field, “Gather and come, assemble from every side to My sacrifice which I am going to (T)sacrifice for you, as a great sacrifice on the mountains of Israel, that you may eat flesh and drink blood. 18 You will (U)eat the flesh of mighty men and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, as though they were (V)rams, lambs, goats, and (W)bulls, all of them fatlings of (X)Bashan. 19 So you will eat fat until you are satisfied and drink blood until you are drunk, from My sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you. 20 And you will be satisfied at My table with (Y)horses and charioteers, with mighty men and all the men of war,” declares Lord Yahweh.

21 “And I will put My (Z)glory among the nations; and all the nations will see My judgment which I have executed and My hand which I have placed on them. 22 And the house of Israel will (AA)know that I am Yahweh their God from that day onward. 23 And the nations will know that the house of Israel went into exile for their (AB)iniquity because they acted unfaithfully against Me, and I (AC)hid My face from them; so I gave them into the hand of their adversaries, and all of them fell by the sword. 24 (AD)According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions I dealt with them, and I hid My face from them.”’”

Israel Will Live in Security

25 Therefore thus says Lord Yahweh, “Now I will return the [i](AE)fortunes of Jacob and have compassion on the whole (AF)house of Israel; and I will be (AG)jealous for My holy name. 26 So they will [j](AH)forget their dishonor and all their unfaithfulness which they [k]perpetrated against Me, when they (AI)live securely on their own land with (AJ)no one to make them tremble. 27 When I (AK)return them from the peoples and gather them from the lands of their enemies, then I shall (AL)prove Myself holy [l]through them in the sight of the many nations. 28 Then they will know that I am Yahweh their God because I made them go into exile among the nations, and then collected them again to their own land; and I will leave none of them there any longer. 29 And I will not hide My face from them any longer, for I will have (AM)poured out My Spirit on the house of Israel,” declares Lord Yahweh.
