Ezekiel 38:1 And the worde of the Lorde came vnto me, saying: Ezekiel 38:2 Thou sonne of man, set thy face towarde Gog, the land of Magog, which is the chiefe prince at Mesech and Tubal: prophecie against him, Ezekiel 38:3 And say, thus sayth the Lorde God: O Gog, thou chiefe prince of Mesech and Tubal, beholde, I will vpon thee: Ezekiel 38:4 And I will turne thee backe, and put hookes in thy chawes, I will bring thee foorth and all thyne hoast, both horse and horsemen, all armed with all sortes of armour, a great multitude with speares and shieldes, all handling swordes. Ezekiel 38:5 They of Paras, of Cush, & Phut, with them [euen] all [hauing] shieldes and helmets. Ezekiel 38:6 Gomer and all his hoastes, the house of Togarma out of the north quarters and all his hoastes, yea and much people with thee. Ezekiel 38:7 Therfore prepare thee, set thy selfe in aray with all thy people that are come vnto thee by heapes, & be thou their defence.

Ezekiel 38:8 After many dayes thou shalt be visited, and in the latter yeres thou shalt come into the lande that hath ben turned [and cost] with the sworde, and gathered together againe out of many people vpon the mountaynes of Israel, which haue ben alwayes [subiect] to waste: but it is brought out of the people, and they dwell all safe. Ezekiel 38:9 Thou shalt ascend and come vp like a storme, as a cloude to couer the lande shalt thou be: thou with al thine hoastes, & a great multitude of people with thee. Ezekiel 38:10 Moreouer, thus sayth the Lorde God: At the same time shall thinges come into thy minde, so that thou shalt thinke euyll thoughtes. Ezekiel 38:11 And say, I will vp to the lande of vnwalled villages, I will go to them that be at rest, whiche dwell safely, all dwelling without walles, they haue neither barres nor gates: Ezekiel 38:12 To spoyle the pray, and to take a bootie, to turne thy hande vpon the desolate places that are [nowe] inhabited, & vpon that people that is gathered together from among the heathen, whiche haue gotten cattell and goodes, and dwell in the mids of the lande. Ezekiel 38:13 Then shall Saba and Dedan, and the marchauntes of Tharsis with all their lions, say vnto thee: Art thou come to spoyle a pray? hast thou gathered thy people together to take a bootie, to take away siluer and golde, to cary away cattel and good, and to haue a great pray?
God's judgment against him.
Ezekiel 38:14 Therfore, O thou sonne of man, thou shalt prophecie and say vnto Gog, thus sayth the Lord God: In that day when my people Israel dwelleth safe, shalt thou not knowe it? Ezekiel 38:15 And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north partes, thou and much people with thee, which ride al vpon horses, [euen] a great multitude and a mightie armie. Ezekiel 38:16 Yea thou shalt come vpon my people of Israel, as a cloude to couer the lande: this shall come to passe in the latter dayes, and I will bring thee vp into my land, that the heathen may knowe me, when I shalbe sanctified in thee O Gog, before their eyes. Ezekiel 38:17 Thus sayth the Lorde God: Art not thou he of whom I haue spoken in olde time by the handes of my seruauntes the prophetes of Israel, which prophecied in those dayes and yeres, that I should bring thee vpon them? Ezekiel 38:18 At the same time when Gog commeth vp into the lande of Israel, sayth the Lorde God, shall myne indignation rise in my wrath: Ezekiel 38:19 For in my ielousie and fire of my wrath haue I spoken it, surely at that time ther shalbe a great shaking in the lande of Israel. Ezekiel 38:20 The very fisshes in the sea, the foules in the ayre, the beastes of the fielde, and all that moue and crepe vpon the earth, and all the men that are vpon the earth, shall tremble at my presence: the hilles also shalbe turned vpside downe, the staires shall fall, and all walles shall fall downe to the grounde. Ezekiel 38:21 I will call for a sworde vpon hym in all my mountaynes, sayth the Lorde God: so that euery mans sworde shalbe vpon another. Ezekiel 38:22 With pestilence and blood wil I pleade against him: stormie rayne and haylestones, fire and brimstone wil I cause to rayne vpon him and all his hoastes, yea and vpon all that great people that is with him. Ezekiel 38:23 Thus will I be magnified, sanctified, and knowen in the eyes of many nations: and they shall knowe that I am the Lorde.
