The Burial of Gog

11 “It will come to pass in that day that I will give Gog a burial place there in Israel, the valley of those who pass by east of the sea; and it will obstruct travelers, because there they will bury Gog and all his multitude. Therefore they will call it the Valley of [a]Hamon Gog. 12 For seven months the house of Israel will be burying them, (A)in order to cleanse the land. 13 Indeed all the people of the land will be burying, and they will gain (B)renown for it on the day that (C)I am glorified,” says the Lord God. 14 “They will set apart men regularly employed, with the help of [b]a search party, to pass through the land and bury those bodies remaining on the ground, in order (D)to cleanse it. At the end of seven months they will make a search. 15 The search party will pass through the land; and when anyone sees a man’s bone, he shall [c]set up a marker by it, till the buriers have buried it in the Valley of Hamon Gog. 16 The name of the city will also be [d]Hamonah. Thus they shall (E)cleanse the land.” ’

A Triumphant Festival

17 “And as for you, son of man, thus says the Lord God, (F)‘Speak to every sort of bird and to every beast of the field:

(G)“Assemble yourselves and come;
Gather together from all sides to My (H)sacrificial meal
Which I am sacrificing for you,
A great sacrificial meal (I)on the mountains of Israel,
That you may eat flesh and drink blood.
18 (J)You shall eat the flesh of the mighty,
Drink the blood of the princes of the earth,
Of rams and lambs,
Of goats and bulls,
All of them (K)fatlings of Bashan.
19 You shall eat fat till you are full,
And drink blood till you are drunk,
At My sacrificial meal
Which I am sacrificing for you.
20 (L)You shall be filled at My table
With horses and riders,
(M)With mighty men
And with all the men of war,” says the Lord God.
