Ezekiel 39

Prophecy against Gog— Invaders Destroyed

1“And a  you, son of man, prophesy against Gog and say, ‘Thus says the Lord
Heb YHWH, usually rendered  Lord , and so throughout the ch
 God, “Behold, I am against you, O Gog,
Or chief prince of Meshech
prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal;
2and I will turn you around, drive you on, take you up from the remotest parts of the north and bring you against the mountains of Israel. 3“I will d  strike your bow from your left hand and dash down your arrows from your right hand. 4“You will e  fall on the mountains of Israel, you and all your troops and the peoples who are with you; I will give you as f  food to every
Lit wing
kind of predatory bird and beast of the field.
5You will fall on the
Lit face of the
open field; for it is I who have spoken,” declares the Lord  God.
6And I will send i  fire upon Magog and those who inhabit the j  coastlands in safety; and they will know that I am the  Lord.

7“My k  holy name I will make known in the midst of My people Israel; and I will not let My holy name be l  profaned anymore. And the m  nations will know that I am the  Lord, the n  Holy One in Israel. 8Behold, it is coming and it shall be done,” declares the Lord  God. “That is the day of which I have spoken.

9Then those who inhabit the cities of Israel will o  go out and make p  fires with the weapons and burn them, both shields and bucklers, bows and arrows, war clubs and spears, and for seven years they will make fires of them. 10They will not take wood from the field or gather firewood from the forests, for they will make fires with the weapons; and they will take the spoil of those who despoiled them and seize the q  plunder of those who plundered them,” declares the Lord  God.

11On that day I will give Gog a burial ground there in Israel, the valley of those who pass by east of the sea, and it will block off those who would pass by. So they will bury Gog there with all his
Lit crowd
horde, and they will call it the valley of
Or the multitude of Gog
12For seven months the house of Israel will be burying them in order to t  cleanse the land. 13Even all the people of the land will bury them; and it will be
Or a memorial for them
to their v  renown on the day that I w  glorify Myself,” declares the Lord  God.
14They will set apart men who will constantly pass through the land, x  burying those who were passing through, even those left on the surface of the ground, in order to cleanse it. At the end of seven months they will make a search. 15As those who pass through the land pass through and anyone sees a man’s bone, then he will
Lit build
set up a marker by it until the buriers have buried it in the valley of
Or the multitude of Gog
16And even the name of the city will be Hamonah. So they will cleanse the land.”’

17As for you, son of man, thus says the Lord  God, ‘Speak to every
Lit wing
kind of ab  bird and to every ac  beast of the field, “Assemble and come, gather from every side to My sacrifice which I am going to ad  sacrifice for you, as a great sacrifice on the mountains of Israel, that you may eat flesh and drink blood.
18“You will ae  eat the flesh of mighty men and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, as though they were af  rams, lambs, goats and ag  bulls, all of them fatlings of ah  Bashan. 19So you will eat fat until you are glutted, and drink blood until you are drunk, from My sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you. 20You will be glutted at My table with ai  horses and charioteers, with mighty men and all the men of war,” declares the Lord  God.

21And I will set My aj  glory among the nations; and all the nations will see My judgment which I have executed and My hand which I have laid on them. 22And the house of Israel will ak  know that I am the  Lord their God from that day onward. 23The nations will know that the house of Israel went into exile for their al  iniquity because they acted treacherously against Me, and I am  hid My face from them; so I gave them into the hand of their adversaries, and all of them fell by the sword. 24 an  According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions I dealt with them, and I hid My face from them.”’”

Israel Restored

25Therefore thus says the Lord  God, “Now I will
Or return the captivity
ap  restore the fortunes of Jacob and have mercy on the whole aq  house of Israel; and I will be ar  jealous for My holy name.
26“They will
Another reading is bear
at  forget their disgrace and all their treachery which they
Lit did treacherously
perpetrated against Me, when they av  live securely on their own land with aw  no one to make them afraid.
27“When I ax  bring them back from the peoples and gather them from the lands of their enemies, then I shall be ay  sanctified
Lit in
through them in the sight of the many nations.
28Then they will know that I am the  Lord their God because I made them go into exile among the nations, and then gathered them again to their own land; and I will leave none of them there any longer. 29I will not hide My face from them any longer, for I will have ba  poured out My Spirit on the house of Israel,” declares the Lord  God.
