"Son of man, prophesy against Gog1 and say: 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I am against you, O Gog, chief prince ofa Meshech2 and Tubal.32
I will turn you around and drag you along. I will bring you from the far north4 and send you against the mountains of Israel.53
Then I will strike your bow6 from your left hand and make your arrows7 drop from your right hand.
On 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 birds8 and to the wild animals.95
You will fall in the open field, for I have spoken, declares the Sovereign LORD.106
I will send fire11 on Magog12 and on those who live in safety in the coastlands,13 and they will know14 that I am the LORD.
" 'I will make known my holy name among my people Israel. I will no longer let my holy name be profaned,15 and the nations will know16 that I the LORD am the Holy One in Israel.178
It is coming! It will surely take place, declares the Sovereign LORD. This is the day18 I have spoken of.
" '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,19 the war clubs and spears. For seven years they will use them for fuel.2010
They 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 plunder21 those who plundered them and loot those who looted them, declares the Sovereign LORD.22
