Ezekiel 39


The Prophecy against Gog

1And you, O son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus says the Lord the  lord; Behold, I am against you Gog ruler of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal! 2And I will gather you, and I will lead you down, and I will haul you from the extreme north, and I will lead you upon the mountains of Israel. 3And I will destroy your bow from [3hand 1your 2left], and your arrows from [3hand 1your 2right]. 4And I will throw you down upon the mountains of Israel; and you shall fall, you and all the ones around you. And the nations, the ones with you shall be given to a multitude of birds, to every winged creature; and [3to all 4the 5wild beasts 6of the 7plain 1I have given 2you] to be devoured. 5Upon the face of the plain you shall fall, for I spoke, says the Lord the  lord.

The LORD Sends Fire on Gog

6And I will send fire upon Magog, and [3shall be inhabited 1the 2islands] in peace. And they shall know that I am the  lord. 7And [3name 1my 2holy] will be known in the midst of my people Israel; and [4shall not 5be profaned 3name 1my 2holy] any longer. And [3shall know 1the 2nations] that I am the  lord, the holy one in Israel. 8Behold, it is come, and you shall know that it will be, says the Lord the  lord; this is the day in which I spoke. 9And [6shall come forth 1the ones 2dwelling 3the 4cities 5of Israel], and they shall kindle a fire with the weapons -- small shields, and shafts, and bows, and arrows, and rods of the hands, and lances; and they shall kindle with them a fire for seven years. 10And no way shall they take trees from out of the plain, nor shall they fell trees from out of the groves; but only the weapons shall they incinerate with fire. And they shall plunder the ones plundering them, and shall despoil the ones despoiling them, says the  lord. 11And it will be in that day I will appoint Gog a place of renown -- a memorial in Israel, a cemetery of the ones coming by the sea. And they shall enclose the cleft of the ravine, and they shall bury Gog there, and all his multitude. And it shall be called then, The Cemetery of Gog. 12And [3shall bury 4them 1the house 2of Israel], that [3should be cleansed 1the 2land] in seven months. 13And [6shall bury 7them 1all 2the 3people 4of the 5land]; and it will be to them for a famous place in which day I was glorified, says the Lord the  lord. 14And [2for men 3continually 1they shall give orders] for coming over the land to bury the ones being left upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it. After the seven months, and they shall seek. 15And every one traveling over the land, and seeing the bone of a man, shall build [2by 3it 1a sign], until whenever [3shall bury 4it 1the ones 2burying] in the cemetery of Gog. 16For even the name of the city is Cemetery; and [3shall be cleansed 1the 2land]. 17And you son of man, thus says the Lord the  lord; Speak to every [2bird 1winged], and to all the wild beasts of the plain! saying, Gather together and come! Be gathered together from all the surrounding places unto my sacrifice! which I sacrificed to you, [2sacrifice 1a great] upon the mountains of Israel, and you shall eat meats, and drink blood. 18[2meats 3of giants 1You shall eat], and [2blood 3of rulers 4of the 5earth 1you shall drink], rams, and calves, and he-goats, and the calves all growing fat. 19And you shall eat fat unto fullness, and you shall drink blood unto intoxication from my sacrifice in which I sacrificed to you. 20And you shall be filled from my table -- horse, and rider, and giant, and every male warrior, says the Lord the  lord.

Israel is Restored to the Land

21And I will put my glory among you, and [4shall see 1all 2the 3nations] my judgment which I did, and my hand which I brought upon them. 22And [3shall know 1the house 2of Israel] that I am the  lord their God, from this day and beyond. 23And [4shall know 1all 2the 3nations] that [4on account of 5their sin 3was captured 1the house 2of Israel], because they annulled covenant against me, and I turned my face from them, and delivered them into the hands of their enemies, and they all fell by the sword. 24Because of their uncleannesses, and because of their violations of the law I did it to them, and I turned my face from them. 25On account of this, thus says the Lord the  lord; Now I will return the captivity in Jacob, and I will show mercy on the house of Israel, and I will be jealous on account of [2name 1my holy]. 26And they shall take their own dishonor, and the iniquity which they transgressed in their settling upon their land in peace, and there will not be one frightening, 27in my returning them from out of the nations, and my gathering them from out of the places of the nations; and I shall be sanctified among them before the nations. 28And they shall know that I am the  lord their God in my appearing to them among the nations, in my gathering them upon their land. And I shall not abandon them any more -- not one there. 29And I shall not turn [2any longer 1my face] from them, because I poured out my rage upon the house of Israel, says the Lord the  lord.
