38:1 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,
38:2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, and the land of Magog, Rhos,
prince of Mesoch and Thobel, and prophesy against him,
38:3 and say to him, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee,
Rhos prince of Mesoch and Thobel:
38:4 and I will gather thee, and all thine host, horses and horsemen,
all wearing breast-plates, with a great multitude, shields and helmets
38:5 Persians, and Ethiopians, and Libyans; all with helmets and
38:6 Gomer, and all belonging to him; the house of Thorgama, from the
end of the north, and all belonging to him; and many nations with thee.
38:7 Be thou prepared, prepare thyself, thou, and all thy multitude that
is assembled with thee, and thou shalt be to me for a guard.
38:8 He shall be prepared after many days, and he shall come at the end
of years, and shall come to a land that is brought back from the sword,
when [the people] are gathered from many nations against the land of
Israel, which was entirely desolate: and he is come forth out of the
nations, and they shall all dwell securely.
38:9 And thou shalt go up as rain, and shalt arrive as a cloud to cover
the land, and there shall be thou, and all that are about thee, and many
nations with thee.
38:10 Thus saith the Lord God; It shall also come to pass in that day,
that thoughts shall come up into thine heart, and thou shalt devise evil
38:11 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the rejected land; I will come
upon them that are at ease in tranquility, and dwelling in peace, all
inhabiting a land in which there is no wall, nor bars, nor have they
38:12 to seize plunder, and to take their spoil; to turn my hands
against the desolate land that is [now] inhabited, and against a nation
that is gathered from many nations, that have acquired property,
dwelling in the midst of the land.
38:13 Sabba, and Daedan, and Carthaginian merchants, and all their
villages shall say to thee, Thou art come for plunder to take a prey,
and to get spoils: thou hast gathered thy multitude to take silver and
gold, to carry off property, to take spoils.
38:14 Therefore prophesy, son of man, and say to Gog, Thus saith the
Lord; Wilt thou not arise in that day, when my people Israel are
38:15 and come out of thy place from the farthest north, and many
nations with thee? all of them mounted on horses, a great gathering, and
a large force?
38:16 And thou shalt come up upon my people Israel as a cloud to cover
the land; it shall come to pass I the last days, that I will bring thee
up upon my land, that all the nations may know me, when I am sanctified
in thee before them.
38:17 Thus saith the Lord God, to Gog; Thou art [he] concerning whom I
spoke in former times, by the hand of my servants the prophets of
Israel, in those days and years, that I would bring thee up against
38:18 And it shall come to pass in that day, in the day when Gog shall
come against the Land of Israel, saith the Lord God,
38:19 [that] my wrath and my jealousy shall arise, I have spoken in the
fire of mine anger, verily in that day there shall be a great shaking in
the land of Israel;
38:20 and the fish of the sea shall quake at the presence of the Lord,
and the birds of the sky and the wild beasts of the field, and all the
reptiles that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are on the face
of the earth; and the mountains shall be rent, and the valleys shall
fall, and every wall on the land shall fall.
38:21 And I will summon against it even every fear, saith the Lord: the
sword of [every] man shall be against his brother.
38:22 And I will judge him with pestilence, and blood, and sweeping
rain, and hailstones; and I will rain upon him fire and brimstone, and
upon all that are with him, and upon many nations with him.
38:23 And I will be magnified, and sanctified, and glorified; and I will
be known in the presence of many nations, and they shall know that I am
38:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
38:2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief
prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,
38:3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog,
the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:
38:4 And 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:
38:5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and
38:6 Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north
quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.
38:7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy
company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.
38:8 After 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.
38:9 Thou 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.
38:10 Thus 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
38:11 And 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,
38:12 To 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.
38:13 Sheba, 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?
38:14 Therefore, 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?
38:15 And 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:
38:16 And 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.
38:17 Thus 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?
38:18 And 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.
38:19 For 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;
38:20 So 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.
38:21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my
mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall be against his
38:22 And 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
38:23 Thus 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
