Magog

Magog [N] [E] [H]

(region of Gog ). In ( Genesis 10:2 ) Magog appears as the second son of Japheth; in ( Ezekiel 38:2 ; Ezekiel 39:1 Ezekiel 39:6 ) it appears as a country or people of which Gog was the prince. The notices of Magog would lead us to fix a northern locality: it is expressly stated by Ezekiel that "he was to come up from the sides of the north," ( Ezekiel 39:2 ) from a country adjacent to that of Togarmah or Armenia, ch. 58:6 and not far from "the isles" or maritime regions of Europe. ch. ( Ezekiel 39:6 ) The people of Magog further appear as having a force of cavalry, ( Ezekiel 38:16 ) and as armed with the bow. ch. ( Ezekiel 39:3 ) From the above data, may conclude that Magog represents the important race of the Scythians.
