Ezekiel 38:18

Ezekiel 38:18

And it shall come to pass at the same time, when Gog shall
come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord God
As before prophesied of and described: that my fury shall come up in my face;
as a man's blood rises up in his face, and his colour appears, when he is wroth and angry: or, "in my nose" F19; as men when they are angry puff and blow, expand their nose, breathe through it; but against whom is all this wrath and fury? Starckius, a modern interpreter, thinks it is against the land of Israel, against the church; but it rather seems to be against Gog himself; the Lord being provoked at his attempt against the land of Israel, and the wicked designs he had to spoil and plunder it.
