Isaiah 34:2-8

2For 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 5
has 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.

Isaiah 63:1-7

The  Lord’s Day of Vengeance

1 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 6
spattered 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 redeemed
had 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 Remembered

7 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 38:8-23

8 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.

10Thus 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 lions
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?’

14Therefore 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.

17Thus 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 him
on 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 39:8-20

8 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 javelins
and 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 Gog
12For 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 Until
the 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 multitude
is 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.

Joel 3:2

2 cu  I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. And cv  I will enter into judgment with them there, on behalf of my people and my heritage Israel, because they have scattered them among the nations and have divided up my land,

Revelation of John 16:14-16

14For they are cw  demonic spirits cx  performing signs, who go abroad to the kings of the whole world cy  to assemble them for battle on cz  the great day of God the Almighty. 15(“Behold, da  I am coming like a thief! db  Blessed is the one who stays awake, keeping his garments on, dc  that he may not go about naked and be seen exposed!”) 16And dd  they assembled them at the place that in Hebrew is called de  Armageddon.

Revelation of John 19:19-21

19And I saw df  the beast and the kings of the earth with their armies dg  gathered to make war against him who was sitting on the horse and against his army. 20And the beast was captured, and with it dh  the false prophet di  who in its presence
Or on its behalf
had done the signs by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who dk  worshiped its image. These two were dl  thrown alive into the lake of dm  fire that burns with sulfur.
21And the rest were slain by the sword dn  that came from the mouth of him who was sitting on the horse, and do  all the birds were gorged with their flesh.
