1And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,2Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,3And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:4And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine 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:5Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:6Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.7Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.8After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.9Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.10Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought:11And thou 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,12To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine 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.13Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?14Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord GOD; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it ?15And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army:16And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.17Thus saith the Lord GOD; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days many years that I would bring thee against them?18And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face.19For 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 Israel;20So 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.21And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man' sword shall be against his brother.22And 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.23Thus 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 the LORD.

Prophecy Against Gog
1The word of the Lord came to me:2“Son of man, set your face toward Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him (Ge 10:2; Eze 2:1; Eze 6:2; Eze 27:13; Eze 38:4; Eze 38:9; Eze 39:1; Eze 39:6; Eze 39:11; Re 20:8)3and say, Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. (Eze 13:8)4And I will turn you about and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you out, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed in full armor, a great host, all of them with buckler and shield, wielding swords. (Eze 29:4; Eze 38:15; Eze 39:2)5Persia, Cush, and Put are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; (Ge 10:8; Eze 27:10)6Gomer and all his hordes; Beth-togarmah from the uttermost parts of the north with all his hordes—many peoples are with you. (Ge 10:2; Ge 10:3; Eze 27:14; Eze 32:30; Eze 38:4; Eze 38:22; Eze 39:2)7“Be ready and keep ready, you and all your hosts that are assembled about you, and be a guard for them. (Isa 8:9)8After many days you will be mustered. In the latter years you will go against the land that is restored from war, the land whose people were gathered from many peoples upon the mountains of Israel, which had been a continual waste. Its people were brought out from the peoples and now dwell securely, all of them. (Isa 24:22; Eze 6:2; Eze 11:17; Eze 34:25; Eze 34:27; Eze 38:16)9You will advance, coming on like a storm. You will be like a cloud covering the land, you and all your hordes, and many peoples with you. (Isa 28:2; Jer 4:13; Eze 38:6)10“Thus says the Lord God: On that day, thoughts will come into your mind, and you will devise an evil scheme (Eze 11:5)11and say, ‘I will go up against the land of unwalled villages. I will fall upon the quiet people who dwell securely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having no bars or gates,’ (Jer 49:31; Zec 2:4)12to seize spoil and carry off plunder, to turn your hand against the waste places that are now inhabited, and the people who were gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell at the center of the earth. (Eze 5:5; Eze 5:7; Eze 5:14; Eze 38:8)13Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish and all its leaders will say to you, ‘Have you come to seize spoil? Have you assembled your hosts to carry off plunder, to carry away silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods, to seize great spoil?’ (Ps 17:12; Eze 25:13; Eze 27:15; Eze 27:22; Eze 32:2)14“Therefore, son of man, prophesy, and say to Gog, Thus says the Lord God: On that day when my people Israel are dwelling securely, will you not know it? (Eze 2:1; Eze 38:2; Eze 38:8; Eze 38:11)15You will come from your place out of the uttermost parts of the north, you and many peoples with you, all of them riding on horses, a great host, a mighty army. (Eze 23:6; Eze 38:6; Eze 38:9; Eze 38:22; Eze 39:2)16You will come up against my people Israel, like a cloud covering the land. In the latter days I will bring you against my land, that the nations may know me, when through you, O Gog, I vindicate my holiness before their eyes. (Eze 20:41; Eze 38:8; Eze 38:9; Eze 38:23; Eze 39:13)17“Thus says the Lord God: Are you he of whom I spoke in former days by my servants the prophets of Israel, who in those days prophesied for years that I would bring you against them? (Jer 6:22)18But on that day, the day that Gog shall come against the land of Israel, declares the Lord God, my wrath will be roused in my anger. (Ps 18:8)19For in my jealousy and in my blazing wrath I declare, On that day there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel. (Eze 5:13; Hag 2:6; Re 16:18)20The fish of the sea and the birds of the heavens and the beasts of the field and all creeping things that creep on the ground, and all the people who are on the face of the earth, shall quake at my presence. And the mountains shall be thrown down, and the cliffs shall fall, and every wall shall tumble to the ground. (Ps 114:7; Jer 4:24; Ho 4:3)21I will summon a sword against Gog on all my mountains, declares the Lord God. Every man’s sword will be against his brother. (Jud 7:22; Jer 25:29)22With pestilence and bloodshed I will enter into judgment with him, and I will rain upon him and his hordes and the many peoples who are with him torrential rains and hailstones, fire and sulfur. (Ps 11:6; Eze 13:11; Eze 13:13; Eze 17:20; Eze 38:6; Eze 38:9; Eze 39:6; Re 20:9)23So I will show my greatness and my holiness and make myself known in the eyes of many nations. Then they will know that I am the Lord. (Eze 6:7; Eze 36:23; Eze 37:28; Eze 38:16)
