39 1And thou, son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith
the Lord Jehovah: Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, prince of Rosh, Meshech,
2and I will turn thee about, and will lead thee on, and will
cause thee to come up from the uttermost parts of the north; and I will bring
thee upon the mountains of Israel;
3and I will smite thy bow out of thy
left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.
4Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy hordes,
and the peoples that are with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds
of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.
fall upon the open field; for I have spoken it, saith the Lord Jehovah.
6And I will send a fire on Magog, and on them that dwell securely in the
isles; and they shall know that I am Jehovah.
7And my holy name will I
make known in the midst of my people Israel; neither will I suffer my holy
name to be profaned any more: and the nations shall know that I am Jehovah,
the Holy One in Israel.
8Behold, it cometh, and it shall be done, saith
the Lord Jehovah; this is the day whereof I have spoken.
9And they that
dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall make fires of the
weapons and burn them, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the
arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall make fires of them
10so that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither
cut down any out of the forests; for they shall make fires of the weapons;
and they shall plunder those that plundered them, and rob those that robbed
them, saith the Lord Jehovah.
11And it shall come to pass in that day,
that I will give unto Gog a place for burial in Israel, the valley of them
that pass through on the east of the sea; and it shall stop them that pass
through: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude; and they shall
call it The valley of Hamon-gog.
12And seven months shall the house of
Israel be burying them, that they may cleanse the land.
13Yea, all the
people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown in the
day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord Jehovah.
14And they shall
set apart men of continual employment, that shall pass through the land, and,
with them that pass through, those that bury them that remain upon the face
of the land, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search.
15And they that pass through the land shall pass through; and when any
seeth a man's bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have
buried it in the valley of Hamon-gog.
16And Hamonah shall also be the
name of a city. Thus shall they cleanse the land.
17And thou, son of man,
thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Speak unto the birds of every sort, and to every
beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every
side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon
the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh and drink blood.
shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the
earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of
19And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye
be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.
shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and
with all men of war, saith the Lord Jehovah.
21And I will set my glory
among the nations; and all the nations shall see my judgment that I have
executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them.
22So the house of
Israel shall know that I am Jehovah their God, from that day and forward.
23And the nations shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity
for their iniquity; because they trespassed against me, and I hid my face
from them: so I gave them into the hand of their adversaries, and they fell
all of them by the sword.
24According to their uncleanness and according
to their transgressions did I unto them; and I hid my face from them.
25Therefore thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Now will I bring back the
captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel; and I will
be jealous for my holy name.
26And they shall bear their shame, and all
their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they shall
dwell securely in their land, and none shall make them afraid;
have brought them back from the peoples, and gathered them out of their
enemies' lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations.
28And they shall know that I am Jehovah their God, in that I caused them
to go into captivity among the nations, and have gathered them unto their own
land; and I will leave none of them any more there;
29neither will I hide
my face any more from them; for I have poured out my Spirit upon the house of
Israel, saith the Lord Jehovah.
