1 Therefore ch. 38:2,3thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:
3 And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.
4 ch. 38:21Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: ch. 33:27I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every [c]sort, and to the beasts of the field [d]to be devoured.
7 ver. 22So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them Lev. 18:21pollute my holy name any more: ch. 38:16and the heathen shall know that I am the Lord, the Holy One in Israel.
8 Rev. 16:17;& 21:6Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord God; this is the day ch. 38:17whereof I have spoken.
9 And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the [g]handstaves, and the spears, and they shall [h]burn them with fire seven years:
10 So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: Is. 14:2and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord God.
11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the [i]noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of [j]Hamon-gog.
12 And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, Deut. 21:23that they may cleanse the land.
13 Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that ch. 28:22I shall be glorified, saith the Lord God.
14 And they shall sever out [k]men of continual employment, passing through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth, ver. 12to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search.
17 And thou son of man, thus saith the Lord God; Rev. 19:7Speak [n]unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Is. 18:6;Zeph. 1:7Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my [o]sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice ver. 4upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.
18 Rev. 19:18Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of [p]goats, of bullocks, all of them Deut. 32:14;Ps. 22:12fatlings of Bashan.
19 And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.
20 Ps. 76:6;ch. 38:4Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, Rev. 19:18with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord God.
21 ch. 38:16,23And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and Ex. 7:4my hand that I have laid upon them.
22 ver. 7,28So the house of Israel shall know that I am the Lord their God from that day and forward.
23 ch. 36:18-20,23And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore Deut. 31:17;Is. 59:2hid I my face from them, and Lev. 26:25gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword.
24 ch. 36:19According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions have I done unto them, and hid my face from them.
25 Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Jer. 30:3,18;ch. 34:13;& 36:24Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the ch. 20:40;Hos. 1:11whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name;
26 Dan. 9:16After that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they Lev. 26:5,6dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid.
27 ch. 28:25,26When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies' lands, and ch. 36:23,24;& 38:16am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations;
28 ver. 22;ch. 34:30Then shall they know that I am the Lord their God, [q]which caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there.
29 Is. 54:8Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have Joel 2:28;Zech. 12:10;Acts 2:17poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord God.
