Ezekiel 38


The Nations Gather for War

1And [3came 1the word 2of the  lord] to me, saying, 2O son of man, firmly fix your face against Gog, and the land of Magog, ruler of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him! 3And say! Thus says the Lord the  lord; Behold, I am against you ruler of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal. 4And I will lead you about, and I will put a bridle into your jaws. And I will gather you, and all your force -- horses and horsemen, [2putting on 3chest- plates 1all]; [2gathering 1a great] -- small shields and helmets and swords; 5Persians, and Ethiopians, and Libyans; all with helmets and small shields. 6Gomer and all the ones around him; the house of Togarmah from the extreme north, and all the ones around him; and [2nations 1many] with you. 7Be prepared! Prepare yourself! you and all your gathering being brought together with you. And you will be to me for an advance guard. 8After [2days 1many more] he shall be prepared, and upon the latter end of years he shall come unto the land returning from swords being gathered from many nations upon the land of Israel, which was desolate wholly. And this one [2from out of 3nations 1comes forth]; and they shall dwell in peace all together. 9And you shall ascend as rain, and shall come as a cloud to cover up the land -- and you shall be, and all the ones around you, and [2nations 1many] with you. 10Thus says the Lord the  lord; And it will be in that day [2will ascend 1things] upon your heart, and you shall consider [2devices 1wicked]. 11And you shall say, I will ascend upon the land having been thrown away; I will come upon ones being still at rest, and living in peace, all dwelling in a land in which no [2exists 1wall], nor bars, and [2doors 1there are no] among them; 12to plunder plunder, and to despoil spoils, to turn my hand against the place having been made desolate which was settled, and against a nation being gathered from many nations, having produced possessions, dwelling upon the navel of the earth. 13Sheba, and Dedan, and merchants of Carthage, and all their towns shall say to you, For plunder [3to plunder 1you 2come], and to despoil spoils. You gathered together your gathering to take silver and gold, to carry away property, to despoil [2spoils 1great]. 14On account of this, prophesy O son of man, and say to Gog! Thus says the  lord; Will you not in that day, in the settling of my people Israel in peace, arise? 15And you shall come from out of your place, from the extreme of the north, and [2nations 1many] with you, [2riders 3having horses 1all], [2gathering 1a great], and a great force.

Gog Shall Ascend against Israel

16And you shall ascend against my people Israel as a cloud to cover the land. At the latter end of the days it will be. And I will lead you against my land, that [4shall know 1all 2the 3nations] me, in my being sanctified among you before them. 17Thus says the Lord the  lord; O Gog, you are concerning of whom I spoke about [2days 1in former], by the hand of my servants the prophets of Israel, the ones prophesying in those days and years, to lead you unto them. 18And it will be in that day, in the day which ever [2should come 1Gog] against the land of Israel, says the Lord the  lord, [2shall ascend 1my rage]. 19And my zeal in fire of my anger I spoke. Assuredly, in that day there will be [2quake 1a great] upon the land of Israel. 20And [5shall shake 6before 7my face 1the 2fishes 3of the 4sea], and the birds of the heaven, and the wild beasts of the plain, and all the reptiles crawling upon the earth, and all the men upon the face of the earth. And [3shall tear 1the 2mountains], and [3shall fall 1the 2ravines], and every wall upon the land shall fall. 21And I will call upon him every fear, says the  lord. The sword of a man [2against 3his brother 1will be]. 22And I will judge him by plague, and blood, and [2rain 1flooding], and stones of hail; and fire and sulphur I will rain upon him, and upon all the ones with him, and upon [2nations 1many] with him. 23And I will be magnified, and I will be sanctified, and I will be glorified, and I shall be known before many nations, and they shall know that I am the  lord.
