9 “Then those who inhabit the cities of Israel will go out and make fires 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 plunder 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 [a]horde, and they will call it the valley of [b]Hamon-gog.12 For seven months the house of Israel will be burying them in order to cleanse the land.13 Even all the people of the land will bury them; and it will be [c]to their renown on the day that I glorify Myself,” declares the Lord God.14 “They will set apart men who will constantly pass through the land, 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 As those who pass through the land pass through and anyone sees a man’s bone, then he will [d]set up a marker by it until the buriers have buried it in the valley of [e]Hamon-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 [f]kind of bird and to every beast of the field, “Assemble and come, gather from every side to My sacrifice which I am going to sacrifice for you, as a great sacrifice on the mountains of Israel, that you may eat flesh and drink blood.18 You will eat the flesh of mighty men and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, as though they wererams, lambs, goats and bulls, all of them fatlings of Bashan.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 horses and charioteers, with mighty men and all the men of war,” declares the Lord God.
