CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
39:14 They - The rulers of Israel. Sever - Chuse out men who shall make it their work. Passing - To go up and down over the whole land; for many of Gog's wounded, flying soldiers, died in thickets, and corners into which they crept. The passengers - Whose assistance they would desire of courtesy. Remain - Unburied by the public labour of the house of Israel during the seven months.
As for the people to whom they prophesy--their bodies will be thrown out into the streets of Jerusalem, victims of famine and war. There will be no one left to bury them. Husbands, wives, sons, and daughters--all will be gone. For I will pour out their own wickedness on them.
It will take seven months for the people of Israel to bury the bodies and cleanse the land.
Whenever bones are found, a marker will be set up so the burial crews will take them to be buried in the Valley of Gog's Hordes.
