1The word of Yahweh came to me, saying,
2“Son of man, set your face toward Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief ruler of Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him,
3and say, This is what the Lord Yahweh says: Behold, I am against you, Gog, chief ruler of Meshech, and Tubal,
4and I will turn you about and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you forth with all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed in full armor, a great company with buckler and shield, all of them handling swords;
5Persia, Cush, and Put are with them, all of them with shield and helmet;
6Gomer, and all his hordes and Beth-togarmah from the uttermost parts of the north, and all his hordes; many peoples are with you.
7Be prepared, yes, prepare yourself, you and all your companies who are assembled to you, and you be a guard for them.
8After many days you will be mustered; in the latter years you will come against a land that has been restored from the sword, that has been gathered out of many peoples to the mountains of Israel that had long been a wasteland; but its people were brought out from the nations, and they are living securely, all of them.
9You will advance, you will come like a storm, you will be like a cloud covering the land, you and all your hordes, and many peoples with you.
10This is what the Lord Yahweh says: In that day, things will come into your mind, and you will plan an evil plan,
11and you will say, ‘I will go up against a land of unwalled villages; I will go against those who are at rest, who live securely, all of them living without walls and having no bars or gates,’
12to take the spoil and to take the plunder, to turn your hand against the waste places that are now inhabited, and against the people who have been gathered out of the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who live in the center of the land.
13Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions of it, will say to you, ‘Have you come to take the spoil? Have you assembled your hordes to take the plunder? To carry away silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods, to take great spoil?’
14Therefore, son of man, prophesy, and say to Gog, This is what the Lord Yahweh says: In that day when my people Israel are living securely, will you not know it?
15You will come from your place out of the uttermost parts of the north, you, and many peoples with you, all of them riding on horses, a huge horde, a mighty army,
16and you will come up against my people Israel as a cloud to cover the land; it will happen in the latter days that I will bring you against my land, that the nations may know me, when I will be sanctified in you, Gog, before their eyes.
17This is what the Lord Yahweh says: Are you he of whom I spoke in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, who prophesied in those days for many years that I would bring you against them?
18It will come to pass on that day, when Gog will come against the land of Israel, says the Lord Yahweh, that my wrath will come up into my nostrils.
19For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath I declare that on that day there will be a great shaking in the land of Israel,
20so that the fish of the sea, and the birds of heaven, and the animals of the field, and all creeping things that creep on the earth, and all the people who are on the surface of the earth will shake at my presence, and the mountains will be thrown down, and the steep places will fall, and every wall will fall to the ground.
21And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, says the Lord Yahweh; every man’s sword will be against his brother.
22With plague and with bloodshed I will enter into judgment against him, and I will pour out a flooding rain, and great hailstones, fire, and sulfur on him and on his hordes and on the many peoples who are with him,
23And so I will show my greatness and my holiness, and I will make myself known in the eyes of many nations, and they will know that I am Yahweh.”
