God's judgment upon Gog.
Ezekiel 39:1 Therfore, O thou sonne of man, prophecie agaynst Gog, and speake. Thus sayeth the Lorde God: Beholde O Gog: thou chefe prince at Mesech and Tubal, I wyll vpon the, Ezekiel 39:2 and punyshe the with sixe plages, & leade the from the north partes, and bring the vp to the mountaines of Israell. Ezekiel 39:3 As for thy bowe, I will smyte it out of thy left hande, and cast thyne arowes out of thy ryght hande. Ezekiel 39:4 Thou with all thine heape, and all the people that is wt the, must fall vpon the mountaynes of Israell. Then will I geue the vnto foules and wilde beastes of the felde, to be deuoured: Ezekiel 39:5 there must thou lye vpon the felde: for euen I the Lord haue spoken it, sayeth the Lord God. Ezekiel 39:6 Into Magog, and among those that syt so carelesse in the Iles: will I send a fyre, & they shal knowe, that I am the Lord, Ezekiel 39:7 I wil make also þe name of my holinesse to be knowne among my people of Israel: and I will not let my holy name be euel spoken of enymore: but the very Heathen also shall knowe, that I am the Lord, the holy one of Israel.
Ezekiel 39:8 Beholde, it commeth, and shalbe fulfilled in dede, sayeth the Lord God. This is the daye wherof I haue spoken. Ezekiel 39:9 They that dwel in the cities of Israell, shall go forth and set fyre vpon the weapens, and burne them: shyldes and speres, bowes and arowes, bylles & clubbes: seuen yeares shal they be burnynge therof, Ezekiel 39:10 so that they shal els bringe no stickes from þe felde, nether haue nede to hewe downe eny out of þe wodde. For they shal haue weapens ynowe to burne. They shal robbe those that robbed them, & spoyle those that spoyled them sayeth the Lord God.
Gog's burial in Hamon-gog.
Ezekiel 39:11 At the same tyme wil I geue vnto God, a place to be buried in Israel, euen the valley, where thorow men go from the east to the see warde. Those þt trauayle therby, shall stoppe ther noses for stenche. There shall Gog & all hys people be buried: and it shalbe called the valley of the people of God. Ezekiel 39:12 Seuen monethes longe shall the house of Israell be buryenge of them that they maye clense the lande. Ezekiel 39:13 Yee, all the people of the lande shall burie them. O, it shall be a glorious daye, when I gett me that honoure, saieth þe Lord God. Ezekiel 39:14 They shal ordeyne men also to be deed buriers, euer goynge thorow the lande, & appoynte them certayne places to bury those in, which remayne vpon the felde, þt the lande maye be clensed. From ende to ende shall they seke, & that seuen monethes longe. Ezekiel 39:15 Now those þt go thorow þe lande, where they se a mans bone, they shalt set vp a token by it, tyll þe deed buryers haue buried it also, in þe valley of the people of Gog. Ezekiel 39:16 And þe name of the citie shalbe called, hamonah (þt is a multitude.) Thus shall they make the lande clene.
The feast of the fowls.
Ezekiel 39:17 And thou sonne of man: thus sayeth the Lord God. Speake vnto all the foules and euery byrde, yee, and to al the wilde beastes of the felde, heape you together and come, gather you rounde aboute vpon my slaughter, that I haue slayne for you: euen a greate slaughter vpon the mountaynes of Israell eate flesh and drincke bloude. Ezekiel 39:18 Ye shall eate the flesh of the worthies, & drinke the bloud of the princes of the lande: of the wethers, of the lambes, of the goates, and of the oxen þt be all slayne at Basan. Ezekiel 39:19 Eate the fat your belyfull, and drincke bloude, tyll ye be dronken of the slaughter, whych I haue slayne vnto you. Ezekiel 39:20 Fill you at my table with horses and stronge horsmen: with captaynes and men of warre, sayeth the Lord God. Ezekiel 39:21 I will bringe my glory also amonge the Gentyles, that all the heathen maye se my iudgement, that I haue kepte, and my hand which I haue layed vpon them: Ezekiel 39:22 that the house of Israell maye knowe, how that I am þe Lord their God from that daye forth.
Israel, having been plagued for their sins, shall be gathered again with eternal favour.
Ezekiel 39:23 And the heathen shall knowe, that where as the house of Israell were led into captiuyte: it was for their wyckednes sake, because they offended me. For the which cause I hyd my face from them, and delyuered them into the handes of their enemies, that they might all be slaine with the swearde. Ezekiel 39:24 Accordinge to their vnclennesse & vnfaithfull dealinges, so haue I entreated them, and hyd my face from them. Ezekiel 39:25 Therfore, thus sayeth the Lord God: Now will I bringe agayne the captiues of Iacob & haue mercy vpon the whole house of Israel, and be gelous for my holy names sake Ezekiel 39:26 All their confusion and offence that they haue done agaynst me shall be taken awaye: & so safely shal they dwell in their lande, that no man shall make them afrayed. Ezekiel 39:27 And when I haue brought them agayne from amonge the people, when I haue gathered them together out of their enemies landes, & am praysed in them before many Heathen: Ezekiel 39:28 then shal they knowe, that I am the Lord their God which suffred them to be led into captiuite amonge þe Heathen, but now haue I brought them agayne into their awne lande, and not left one of them yonder. Ezekiel 39:29 After that, will I hyde my face nomore from them but will poure out my sprete vpon the house of Israell, sayeth the Lorde God.
