Ezekiel 38:1 And the word of ye LORD came vnto me, saying; Ezekiel 38:2 Sonne of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog the chiefe prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophecie against him, Ezekiel 38:3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I [am] against thee, O Gog, the chiefe prince of Meshech and Tubal. Ezekiel 38:4 And I will turne thee backe, and put hookes into thy chawes, and I will bring thee foorth, and all thine armie, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts [of armour, euen] a great company with bucklers & shields, all of them handling swordes. Ezekiel 38:5 Persia, Ethiopia and Libya with them; all of them with shield & helmet: Ezekiel 38:6 Gomer and all his bandes, the house of Togarmah of the North quarters, and all his bands, [and] many people with thee. Ezekiel 38:7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thy selfe, thou and all thy company, that are assembled vnto thee, and be thou a guard vnto them.
and malice of Gog.
Ezekiel 38:8 After many daies thou shalt be visited: in the latter yeeres thou shalt come into the land, that is brought back from the sword, [and] is gathered out of many people against the mountaines of Israel, which haue beene alwayes waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them. Ezekiel 38:9 Thou shalt ascend and come like a storme, thou shalt be like a cloud to couer the land, thou and all thy bands, and many people with thee. Ezekiel 38:10 Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also come to passe, [that] at the same time shall things come into thy minde, and thou shalt thinke an euill thought. Ezekiel 38:11 And thou shalt say: I will goe vp to the land of vnwalled villages; I will goe to them that are at rest, that dwell safely all of them dwelling without walles, and [hauing] neither barres nor gates; Ezekiel 38:12 To take a spoile, and to take a praye, to turne thine hand vpon the desolate places that are [now] inhabited, and vpon the people that are gathered out of the nations which haue gotten cattel and goods, that dwell in the middest of the land. Ezekiel 38:13 Sheba, and Dedan, and the marchants of Tarshish, with all the young lyons thereof, shall say vnto thee, Art thou come to take a spoile? hast thou gathered thy company to take a praye? to carie away siluer and gold, to take away cattell and goods, to take a great spoile?
God's judgment against him.
Ezekiel 38:14 Therefore, sonne of man, prophecie and say vnto Gog, Thus saith the Lord GOD; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it? Ezekiel 38:15 And thou shalt come from thy place out of the North parts, thou and many people with thee, all of them riding vpon horses, a great company, and a mighty armie. Ezekiel 38:16 And thou shalt come vp against my people of Israel, as a cloud to couer the land; it shall be in the latter dayes, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes. Ezekiel 38:17 Thus saith the Lord GOD; [Art] thou hee, of whom I haue spoken in old time by my seruants the prophets of Israel, which prophecied in those dayes [many] yeeres, that I would bring thee against them? Ezekiel 38:18 And it shall come to passe at the same time, when Gog shal come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, [that] my furie shall come vp in my face. Ezekiel 38:19 For in my iealousie, [and] in the fire of my wrath haue I spoken: surely in that day, there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel. Ezekiel 38:20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the foules of the heauen, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creepe vpon the earth, and all the men that are vpon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountaines shall be throwen downe, and the steepe places shall fall, and euery wall shall fall to the ground. Ezekiel 38:21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountaines, saith the Lord GOD: euery mans sword shalbe against his brother. Ezekiel 38:22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood, and I will raine vpon him and vpon his bands, and vpon the many people that [are] with him, an ouerflowing raine, and great hailestones, fire, and brimstone. Ezekiel 38:23 Thus will I magnifie my selfe, and sanctifie my selfe, and I will be knowen in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I [am] the LORD.
