Ezekiel 38:1 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying: Ezekiel 38:2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Mosoch and Thubal: and prophesy of him, Ezekiel 38:3 And say to him: Thus saith the Lord God: Behold, I come against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Mosoch and Thubal. Ezekiel 38:4 And I will turn thee about, and I will put a bit in thy jaws: and I will bring thee forth, and all thy army, horses and horsemen all clothed with coats of mail, a great multitude, armed with spears and shields and swords. Ezekiel 38:5 The Persians, Ethiopians, and Libyans with them, all with shields and helmets. Ezekiel 38:6 Gomer, and all his bands, the house of Thogorma, the northern parts and all his strength, and many peoples with thee. Ezekiel 38:7 Prepare and make thyself ready, and all thy multitude that is assembled about thee, and be thou commander over them.

Ezekiel 38:8 After many days thou shalt be visited: at the end of years thou shalt come to the land that is returned from the sword, and is gathered out of many nations, to the mountains of Israel which have been continually waste: but it hath been brought forth out of the nations, and they shall all of them dwell securely in it. Ezekiel 38:9 And thou shalt go up and come like a storm, and like a cloud to cover the land, thou and all thy bands and many people with thee. Ezekiel 38:10 Thus saith the Lord God: In that day projects shall enter into thy heart, and thou shalt conceive a mischievous design. Ezekiel 38:11 And thou shalt say: I will go up to the land which is without a wall, I will come to them that are at rest, and dwell securely: all these dwell without a wall, they have no bars nor gates: Ezekiel 38:12 To take spoils, and lay hold on the prey, to lay thy hand upon them that had been wasted, and afterwards restored, and upon the people that is gathered together out of the nations, which hath begun to possess and to dwell in the midst of the earth. Ezekiel 38:13 Saba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tharsis, and all the lions thereof shall say to thee: Art thou come to take spoils? behold, thou hast gathered thy multitude to take a prey, to take silver, and gold, and to carry away goods and substance, and to take rich spoils.
God's judgment against him.
Ezekiel 38:14 Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy and say to Gog: Thus saith the Lord God: Shalt thou not know, in that day, when my people of Israel shall dwell securely? Ezekiel 38:15 And thou shalt come out of thy place from the northern parts, thou and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company and a mighty army. Ezekiel 38:16 And thou shalt come upon my people of Israel like a cloud, to cover the earth. Thou shalt be in the latter days, and I will bring thee upon my land: that the nations may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes. Ezekiel 38:17 Thus saith the Lord God: Thou then art he, of whom I have spoken in the days of old, by my servants the prophets of Israel, who prophesied in the days of those times that I would bring thee upon them. Ezekiel 38:18 And it shall come to pass in that day, in the day of the coming of Gog upon the land of Israel, saith the Lord God, that my indignation shall come up in my wrath. Ezekiel 38:19 And I have spoken in my zeal, and in the fire of my anger, that in that day there shall be a great commotion upon the land of Israel: Ezekiel 38:20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the birds of the air, and the beasts of the field, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the ground, and all men that are upon the face of the earth, shall be moved at my presence: and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the hedges shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground. Ezekiel 38:21 And I will call in the sword against him in all my mountains, saith the Lord God: every man's sword shall be pointed against his brother. Ezekiel 38:22 And I will judge him with pestilence, and with blood, and with violent rain, and vast hailstones: I will rain fire and brimstone upon him, and upon his army, and upon the many nations that are with him. Ezekiel 38:23 And I will be magnified, and I will be sanctified: and I will be known in the eyes of many nations and they shall know that I am the Lord.
