Ezekiel 38
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And there is a word of YHWH to me, saying, 2“Son of man, set your face toward Gog, of the land of Magog, chief prince of [[or prince of Rosh,]] Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy concerning him, 3and you have said, Thus says Lord YHWH: Behold, I [am] against you, O Gog, "" Chief prince of [[or prince of Rosh,]] Meshech and Tubal, 4And I have turned you back, "" And I have put hooks in your jaws, "" And have brought you out, and all your force, "" Horses and horsemen, "" All of them clothed in perfection, "" A numerous assembly, [with] buckler and shield, "" All of them handling swords. 5Persia, Cush, and Phut, with them, "" All of them [with] shield and helmet. 6Gomer and all its bands, "" The house of Togarmah [from] the sides of the north, "" And all its bands, many peoples with you,

7Be prepared, indeed, prepare yourself, "" You and all your assemblies who are assembled to you, "" And you have been for a watch for them. 8After many days you are appointed, "" In the latter end of the years you come into a land brought back from sword—Gathered out of many peoples, "" On mountains of Israel, "" That have been for a continuous ruin, "" And it has been brought out from the peoples, "" And all of them have dwelt safely. 9And you have gone up—you come in as desolation, "" You are as a cloud to cover the land, "" You and all your bands, and many peoples with you.

10Thus said Lord YHWH: And it has come to pass in that day, "" Things come up on your heart, "" And you have thought an evil thought, 11And you have said: I go up over a land of open places, "" I go to those at rest, dwelling confidently, "" All of them are dwelling without walls, "" And they have no bar and doors— 12To take a spoil, and to take a prey, "" To turn back your hand on inhabited ruins, "" And on a people gathered out of nations, "" Making livestock and substance, "" Dwelling on a high part of the land. 13Sheba, and Dedan, and merchants of Tarshish, "" And all its young lions say to you, "" Are you coming to take spoil? Have you assembled your assembly to take prey? To carry away silver and gold? To take away livestock and substance? To take a great spoil?

14Therefore, prophesy, son of man, and you have said to Gog, Thus said Lord YHWH: In that day, in the dwelling of My people Israel safely, "" Do you not know? 15And you have come in out of your place, "" From the sides of the north, "" You and many peoples with you, "" Riding on horses—all of them, "" A great assembly, and a numerous force. 16And you have come up against My people Israel, "" As a cloud to cover the land, "" It is in the latter end of the days, "" And I have brought you in against My land, "" In order that the nations may know Me, "" In My being sanctified in you before their eyes, O Gog.

17Thus said Lord YHWH: Are you he of whom I spoke in former days, "" By the hand of My servants, prophets of Israel, "" Who were prophesying [for] years in those days, "" To bring you in against them? 18And it has come to pass in that day, "" In the day of the coming in of Gog against the land of Israel, "" A declaration of Lord YHWH, "" My fury comes up in My face, 19And in My zeal, in the fire of My wrath, "" I have spoken: Is there not a great rushing on the land of Israel in that day? 20And rushed from My presence have fishes of the sea, "" And the bird of the heavens, "" And the beast of the field, "" And every creeping thing that is creeping on the ground, "" And all men who [are] on the face of the ground, "" And the mountains have been thrown down, "" And the ascents have fallen, "" And every wall falls to the earth. 21And I have called for a sword against him throughout all My mountains, "" A declaration of Lord YHWH, "" The sword of each is against his brother. 22And I have judged him with pestilence and with blood, "" And an overflowing rain and hailstones, "" I rain fire and brimstone on him, and on his bands, "" And on many peoples who [are] with him. 23And I have magnified Myself, and sanctified Myself, "" And I have been known before the eyes of many nations, "" And they have known that I [am] YHWH!”
