Ezekiel 38:1-10

1The word of the Lord came to me: 2 “Son of man, turn your face toward Gog, of the land of Magog, a the chief prince of
Or the prince of Rosh,
Meshech and Tubal. c Prophesy against him
3and say: This is what the Lord God says: Look, I am against you, Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. 4I will turn you around, put hooks in your jaws, d and bring you out with all your army, including horses and riders, e who are all splendidly dressed, a huge company armed with shields and bucklers, all of them brandishing swords. 5 Persia, f ,
Cush/ Cushite: The lands of the Nile in southern Egypt, including Nubia and Northern Sudan; the people who lived in that region
Cush, and Put are with them, all of them with shields and helmets;
6 Gomer h with all its troops; and Beth-togarmah i from the remotest parts of the north along with all its troops – many peoples are with you.

7“Be prepared and get yourself ready, you and all your company who have been mobilized around you; you will be their guard. 8 After a long time you will be summoned. In the last years you will enter a land that has been restored from war
Lit from the sword
and regathered from many peoples to the mountains of Israel, which had long been a ruin. k They were brought out from the peoples, and all of them now live securely.
9 You, all of your troops, and many peoples with you will advance, coming like a thunderstorm; you will be like a cloud covering the land.

10“This is what the Lord God says: On that day, thoughts will arise in your mind, and you will devise an evil plan.
