(14) Shalt thou not know it?--The second part of this prophecy (Ezekiel 38:14-23), describing the doom of Gog, is introduced (Ezekiel 38:14-16) with a repetition of the peaceful security of Israel, and of God's leading against her this great foe in whose destruction He shall be magnified before all people. The whole passage becomes clearer by omitting the question and reading simply, "When Israel dwells securely thou wilt observe it and come," &c.

Verses 14-23. - The prophet is next directed to assure Gog of four things,

(1) that in the latter days he should come up against Israel as predicted (vers. 14-16);

(2) that he should not do so without Divine observation, permission, and direction (vers. 16, ;17);

(3) that nevertheless Jehovah's indignation should flame forth against him (ver. 18); and . . .
