Isaiah 34:2-82For the Lord is enraged against all the nations,
and furious against all their host;
he has a devoted them to destruction ▼
▼That is, set apart ( devoted) as an offering to the Lord (for destruction); also verse 5has given them over for slaughter.
3Their slain shall be cast out,
and c the stench of their corpses shall rise;
d the mountains shall flow with their blood.
4 e All the host of heaven shall rot away,
and the skies roll up like a scroll.
All their host shall fall,
as leaves fall from the vine,
like leaves falling from the fig tree.
5 For my sword has drunk its fill in the heavens;
behold, it descends for judgment upon f Edom,
upon the people g I have devoted to destruction.
6The Lord has a sword; it is sated with blood;
it is gorged with fat,
with the blood of lambs and goats,
with the fat of the kidneys of rams.
h For the Lord has a sacrifice in Bozrah,
a great slaughter in the land of Edom.
7 i Wild oxen shall j fall with them,
and k young steers with l the mighty bulls.
Their land shall drink its fill of blood,
and their soil shall be gorged with fat.
8 m For the Lord has a day of vengeance,
a year of recompense for the cause of Zion.
The Lord’s Day of Vengeance1 Who is this who comes from n Edom,
in crimsoned garments from o Bozrah,
he who is splendid in his apparel,
p marching in the greatness of his strength?
“It is I, speaking in righteousness,
mighty to save.”
2 Why is your q apparel red,
and your garments like his r who treads in the winepress?
3 s “I have trodden the winepress alone,
t and from the peoples no one was with me;
I trod them in my anger
and trampled them in my wrath;
their lifeblood ▼
▼Or their juice; also verse 6spattered on my garments,
and stained all my apparel.
4 v For the day of vengeance was in my heart,
and my year of redemption ▼
▼Or the year of my redeemedhad come.
5I looked, but x there was no one to help;
I was appalled, but there was no one to uphold;
so my own arm brought me salvation,
and my wrath upheld me.
6I trampled down the peoples in my anger;
y I made them drunk in my wrath,
and I poured out their lifeblood on the earth.”
The Lord’s Mercy Remembered7 I will recount the steadfast love of the Lord,
the praises of the Lord,
according to all that the Lord has granted us,
z and the great goodness to the house of Israel
that he has granted them according to his compassion,
according to the abundance of his steadfast love.
Ezekiel 38:8-238 aa After many days you will be mustered. ab In the latter years you will go against ac the land that is restored from war, the land whose people ad were gathered from many peoples upon ae the mountains of Israel, which had been a continual waste. Its people were brought out from the peoples and af now dwell securely, all of them. 9You will advance, coming on ag like a storm. You will be ah like a cloud covering the land, you and all your ai hordes, and many peoples with you. 10“Thus says the Lord God: On that day aj thoughts will come into your mind, and you will devise an evil scheme 11and say, ‘I will go up against ak the land of unwalled villages. I will fall upon al the quiet people who dwell securely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having no bars or gates,’ 12to seize spoil and carry off plunder, to turn your hand against am the waste places that are now inhabited, and an the people who were gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, ao who dwell at the center of the earth. 13 ap Sheba and aq Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish and all ar its leaders ▼
▼Hebrew young lionswill 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?’ 14“Therefore at son of man, prophesy, and say to au Gog, Thus says the Lord God: On that day when my people Israel are av dwelling securely aw will you not know it? 15You will come from your place out of ax the uttermost parts of the north, you and ay many peoples with you, az all of them riding on horses, a great host, a mighty army. 16You will come up against my people Israel, ba like a cloud covering the land. bb In the latter days I will bring you against my land, that the nations may know me, when through you, O Gog, bc I vindicate my holiness before their eyes. 17“Thus says the Lord God: Are you bd 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? 18But on that day, the day that Gog shall come against the land of Israel, declares the Lord God, be my wrath will be roused in my anger. 19For bf in my jealousy and in my blazing wrath I declare, On that day bg there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel. 20 bh The 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 bi shall quake at my presence. And bj the mountains shall be thrown down, and the cliffs shall fall, and every wall shall tumble to the ground. 21 bk I will summon a sword against Gog ▼
▼Hebrew against himon all my mountains, declares the Lord God. bm Every man’s sword will be against his brother. 22With pestilence and bloodshed bn I will enter into judgment with him, and bo I will rain upon him and bp his hordes and the many peoples who are with him bq torrential rains and hailstones, br fire and sulfur. 23So I will show my greatness and my bs holiness and bt make myself known in the eyes of many nations. Then bu they will know that I am the Lord.
Ezekiel 39:8-208 bv Behold, it is coming and it will be brought about, declares the Lord God. That is the day bw of which I have spoken. 9“Then those who dwell in the cities of Israel will go out and bx make fires of the weapons and burn them, shields and bucklers, bow and arrows by clubs ▼
▼Or javelinsand spears; and they will make fires of them for seven years, 10so that they will not need to take wood out of the field or cut down any out of the forests, for ca they will make their fires of the weapons. cb They will seize the spoil of those who despoiled them, and plunder those who plundered them, declares the Lord God. 11“On that day I will give to cc Gog a place for burial in Israel, the Valley of the Travelers, east of the sea. It will block the travelers, for there Gog and all his multitude will be buried. It will be called the Valley of cd Hamon-gog. ▼
▼ Hamon-gog means the multitude of Gog12For cf seven months the house of Israel will be burying them, in order cg to cleanse the land. 13All the people of the land will bury them, and it will bring them renown on the day that ch I show my glory, declares the Lord God. 14They will set apart men to travel through the land regularly and bury those travelers remaining on the face of the land, so as ci to cleanse it. At ▼
▼Or Untilthe end of ck seven months they will make their search. 15And when these travel through the land and anyone sees a human bone, then he shall set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in the Valley of cl Hamon-gog. 16(Hamonah ▼
▼ Hamonah means multitudeis also the name of the city.) Thus shall they cleanse the land. 17“As for you cn son of man, thus says the Lord God: co Speak to cp the birds of every sort and to cq all beasts of the field, ‘Assemble and come, gather from all around to cr the sacrificial feast that I am preparing for you, a great sacrificial feast on the mountains of Israel, and you shall eat flesh and drink blood. 18 cs You shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth—of rams, of lambs, and of he-goats, of bulls, all of them ct fat beasts of Bashan. 19And you shall eat fat till you are filled, and drink blood till you are drunk, at the sacrificial feast that I am preparing for you. 20And you shall be filled at my table with horses and charioteers, with mighty men and all kinds of warriors,’ declares the Lord God.
