God's judgment upon Gog.
Ezekiel 39:1 Therfore O thou sonne of man, prophecye agaynste Gog, and speake: Thus sayeth the Lorde God: Behold, O Gog: thou chefe prince at Mesech and Tubal, I wyll vpon the, Ezekiel 39:2 and turne the aboute, & carie the forth, and leade the from the north partes, and bringe the vp to the mountaynes of Israell. Ezekiel 39:3 As for thy bowe, I wyll smyte it out of thy left hande, and cast thyne arowes out of thy ryght hande. Ezekiel 39:4 Thou wyth all thyne heape, and all the people that is wyth the, muste, fall vpon the mountaynes of Israell. Then wyll I geue þe vnto the foules & wylde beastes of þe felde, to be deuoured: Ezekiel 39:5 there must thou lye vpon the felde: for euen I the Lorde haue spoken it, sayeth the Lorde God. Ezekiel 39:6 In to Magog, and amonge those that syt so carelesse in the Iles: will I sende a fyre, & they shall know, that I am the Lorde. Ezekiel 39:7 I wyll make also the name of my holynesse to be knowne amonge my people of Israell: and I wyll not let my holy name be euell spoken of enymore: but þe very Heathen also shal knowe, that I am the Lorde, the holye one of Israell
Ezekiel 39:8 Beholde, it commeth, and shalbe fulfylled in dede, sayeth the Lord God. This is the daye wherof I haue spoken: Ezekiel 39:9 They that dwell in þe cyties of Israel, shall go forth & set fyre vpon the weapens, & burne them: shyldes & speres bowes and arowes, bylles & clubbes: seuen yeares Ezekiel 39:10 shall they be burnynge therof, so that they shall els bringe no styckes from the felde, nether haue nede to hew downe eny out of the wodde: For they shal haue weapens ynow to burne. They shall robbe those that robbed them, & spoyle those that spoyled them sayeth the Lorde God.
Gog's burial in Hamon-gog.
Ezekiel 39:11 At the same tyme wyll I geue vnto Gog, a place to be buried in, in Israel: euen the valley where thorow men go from the east to the see warde. Those that trauayle therby, shall abhorre it. There shall Gog and all hys people be buried: and it shalbe called the valleye of the people of Gog. Ezekiel 39:12 Seuen monethes longe shall the house of Israell be burienge of them that they maye clense the lande. Ezekiel 39:13 Yee al þe people of the lande shall burye them. O it shall be a glorious daye, when I gett me that honoure, sayeth the Lorde God. Ezekiel 39:14 They shall ordene men also to be deed buriers, euer going thorow the lande, & appoynte them certayne places to bury those in, which remayne vpon the felde, that the lande maye be clensed. From ende to ende shall they seke, and that .vij. monethes longe. Ezekiel 39:15 Now those that go thorow the land, where they se a mans bone, they shall set vp a token by it, till the deed buriers haue buried it also, in þe valleys of þe people of Gog. Ezekiel 39:16 And the name of the cytye shalbe called. Hamonah: Thus shalt they make the land clene.
The feast of the fowls.
Ezekiel 39:17 And thou sonne of man: thus sayth the Lorde God: Speake vnto all the foules and euery byrde, yee and to all the wylde 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 þe flesh of the worthies, and drynke the bloude of the prynces of the lande: of the wethers, of the lambes of the goates, and of the oxen that be al slayne at Basan. Ezekiel 39:19 Eate the fat youre belyfull, & dryncke bloud, tyll ye be dronken of the slaughter, whyche I haue slayne vnto you. Ezekiel 39:20 Fyll you at my table, with horses and stronge horsmen: with captaynes and all men of warre, sayeth the Lorde God. Ezekiel 39:21 I wyll bringe my glorye also amonge the Gentyles, that all the Heathen maye se my iudgement, that I haue kepte, and my hande which I haue layed vpon them: Ezekiel 39:22 that the house of Israell maye knowe, how that I am the Lorde theyr 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 in to captyuite: it was for their wickednes sake, because they offended me. For the whych cause I hyd my face from them, and delyuered them in to the handes of their enemyes, that they myght all be slayne with the swearde. Ezekiel 39:24 Accordinge to their vnclennesse and vnfaithfull dealinges, so haue I entreated them, and hyd my face from them. Ezekiel 39:25 Therfore thus sayeth the Lorde God: Now wyll I brynge agayne the captiues of Iacob and haue mercy vpon the whole house of Israell, 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: and so safely shall 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 enemyes landes, & am praysed in them before many Heathen: Ezekiel 39:28 then shall they knowe, that I am the Lorde their God, which suffred them to be led in to cautyuyte amonge the Heathen, but now haue brought them agayne in to their owne lande, and not left one of them yonder. Ezekiel 39:29 After that, wyll I hyde my face nomore from them, but will poure out my sprete vpon the house of Israell, sayeth the Lorde God.
