And it shall come to pass at the same time, when Gog
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.
F19 (ypab) "in nasum meum", Piscator, Cocceius, Starckius.
