Ezekiel 38 - AMP

2 Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Gog is a symbolic name, representing the leader of the world powers antagonistic to God (see also Rev. 20:8). Meshech and Tubal are understood to have been the same as the Moschi and Tibareni of the Greeks--tribes that inhabited regions in the Caucasus. Rosh, which some would identify with Russia, must have designated a land and people somewhere in the same area. And therefore the Gog of Ezekiel must be viewed as in some sense the head of the high regions in the northwest of Asia. (Patrick Fairbairn, The Imperial Bible-dictionary).Magog, the prince of Rosh, of Meshech, and of Tubal, and prophesy against him, 3 And say, Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, chief prince (ruler) of Rosh, of Meshech, and of Tubal. 4 And I will turn you back and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you forth and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed in full armor, a great company with buckler and shield, all of them handling swords-- 5 Persia, Cush, and Put or Libya with them, all of them with shield and helmet, 6 Gomer and all his hordes, the house of Togarmah in the uttermost parts of the north and all his hordes--many people are with you. 7 You be prepared; yes, prepare yourself, you and all your companies that are assembled about you, and you be a guard and a commander for them. 8 After many days you shall be visited and mustered ; in the latter years you shall go against the land that is restored from the ravages of the sword, where people are gathered out of many nations upon the mountains of Israel, which had been a continual waste; but its are brought forth out of the nations and they shall dwell securely, all of them. 9 You shall ascend and come like a storm; you shall be like a cloud to cover the land, you and all your hosts and many people with you. 10 Thus says the Lord God: At the same time thoughts shall come into your mind, and you will devise an evil plan. 11 And you will say, I will go up against an open country ; I will fall upon those who are at rest, who dwell securely, all of them dwelling without walls and having neither bars nor gates, 12 To take spoil and prey, to turn your hand upon the desolate places now inhabited and assail the people gathered out of the nations, who have obtained livestock and goods, who dwell at the center of the earth . 13 Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish, with all their lionlike cubs , shall say to you, Have you come to take spoil? Have you gathered your hosts to take the prey? To carry away silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods, to take a great spoil? 14 Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say to Gog, Thus says the Lord God: In that day when My people Israel dwell securely, will you not know it and be aroused? 15 And you will come from your place out of the uttermost parts of the north, you and many peoples with you, all of them riding on horses, a great host, a mighty army. 16 And you shall come up against My people Israel like a cloud to cover the land. In the latter days I will bring you against My land, that the nations may know, understand, and realize Me when My holiness shall be vindicated through you , O Gog, before their eyes. 17 Thus says the Lord God: Are you he of whom I have spoken in olden times by My servants the prophets of Israel, who prophesied in those days for years that I would bring you against them? 18 But in that day when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, says the Lord God, My wrath shall come up into My nostrils. 19 For in My jealousy and in the fire of My wrath have I said, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking or cosmic catastrophe in the land of Israel, 20 So that the fishes of the sea and the birds of the heavens, the beasts of the field and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall tremble and shake at My presence; and the mountains shall be thrown down and the steep places shall fall and every wall shall fall to the ground. 21 And I will call for a sword against throughout all My mountains, says the Lord God, every man's sword shall be against his brother . 22 And with pestilence and with bloodshed will I enter into judgment with , and I will rain upon him and upon his hordes and upon the many peoples that are with him torrents of rain and great hailstones, fire and brimstone. 23 Thus will I demonstrate My greatness and My holiness, and I will be recognized, understood, and known in the eyes of many nations; yes, they shall know that I am the Lord .
