Ezekiel 39:1-29 NIV

1“Son of man, prophesy against Gog and say: 

I AM Against you, Gog, chief prince ofa Meshek and Tubal. 2I Will Turn you Around and Drag you Along. I Will Bring you from the far north and Send you against the mountains of Israel.3Then I Will Strike your bow from your left hand and Make your arrows drop from your right hand. 4On the mountains of Israel you will fall, you and all your troops and the nations with you. I Will Give you as food to all kinds of carrion birds and to the wild animals. 5You will fall in the open field, for I Have Spoken, 


6I Will Send fire on Magog and on those who live in safety in the coastlands, and 
they will know that 


7“ ‘I Will Make Known MY HOLY Name among MY people Israel. I Will No Longer Let MY HOLY Name Be Profaned, and 

the nations will know that 

I The LORD AM The HOLY ONE in Israel. 

8It is coming! It will surely take place, 


This Is The Day I Have Spoken of.

9“ ‘Then those who live in the towns of Israel will go out and use the weapons for fuel and burn them up—the small and large shields, the bows and arrows, the war clubs and spears. For seven years they will use them for fuel. 

 10They will not need to gather wood from the fields or cut it from the forests, because they will use the weapons for fuel. And they will plunder those who plundered them and loot those who looted them, 


11“ ‘On that day I Will Give Gog a burial place in Israel, in the valley of those who travel east of the Sea. It will block the way of travelers, because Gog and all his hordes will be buried there. So it will be called the Valley of Hamon Gog.b

12“ ‘For seven months the Israelites will be burying them in order to cleanse the land. 13All the people of the land will bury them, and the Day I display My Glory Will Be a memorable day for them, 


14People will be continually employed in cleansing the land. They will spread out across the land and, along with others, they will bury any bodies that are lying on the ground.

“ ‘After the seven months they will carry out a more detailed search. 15As they go through the land, anyone who sees a human bone will leave a marker beside it until the gravediggers bury it in the Valley of Hamon Gog, 16near a town called Hamonah.c And so they will cleanse the land.’

17“Son of man,  

‘This Is What The SOVEREIGN LORD Says: 

Call out to every kind of bird and all the wild animals: ‘Assemble and come together from all around to the sacrifice I AM preparing for you, the great sacrifice on the mountains of Israel. There you will eat flesh and drink blood. 18You will eat the flesh of mighty men and drink the blood of the princes of the earth as if they were rams and lambs, goats and bulls—all of them fattened animals from Bashan. 19At the sacrifice I AM preparing for you, you will eat fat till you are glutted and drink blood till you are drunk. 20At My table you will eat your fill of horses and riders, mighty men and soldiers of every kind,’ 


21I Will Display MY Glory among the nations, and all 

the nations will see the Punishment I Inflict and The 

Hand I Lay on them.

 22 From that day forward the people of Israel will know that 

I AM The LORD their GOD.

23And the nations will know that the people of Israel went into exile for their sin, because they were unfaithful to ME. So I Hid MY Face from them and handed them over to their enemies, and they all fell by the sword. 24I Dealt With them according to their uncleanness and their offenses, and I Hid MY Face from them.


‘This Is What The SOVEREIGN LORD Says:

I Will Now Restore the fortunes of Jacobd and Will Have Compassion On all the people of Israel, and I Will Be Zealous For Mㅛ Holy Name. 26They will forget their shame and all the unfaithfulness they showed toward ME when they lived in safety in their land with no one to make them afraid. 27When I Have Brought them Back from the nations and have gathered them from the countries of their enemies, I Will Be Proved HOLY through them in the sight of many nations. 

28 Then they will know that 

I AM The LORD their GOD, 

for though I Sent them into exile among the nations, I Will Gather them to their own land, not leaving any behind. 29I Will No Longer Hide MY Face from them, for I Will Pour Out MY SPIRIT on the people of Israel, 


This chapter is a continuation of the prophecy of the destruction of Gog, which is both repeated, and more largely described, Ezekiel 39:1, then follows an account of the burning of his weapons of war, which will last seven years in burning, during which time there will be no need of the use of wood, Ezekiel 39:9, and of the burial of him, and many of his army; the place where, and the time that will be taken up in doing this, even seven months, are observed, Ezekiel 39:11, and every feathered fowl and beast of the field are called upon to feed on the flesh of those that are left unburied, Ezekiel 39:17

And by all this The Glory of The LORD JESUS Will Be Seen, Known, and Acknowledged, both by the gentile nations, and by the house of Israel, Ezekiel 39:21, and the former will also be informed that the present captivity of the Jews has been for their sins and transgressions, Ezekiel 39:23, and the chapter is concluded with a promise of their return from captivity, when they shall know The LORD, and their interest in HIM; WHO Will after this no more Hide HIS Face from them, but Pour Out HIS SPIRIT Upon them, under whose influence they shall ever continue, Ezekiel 39:25.
