Ezekiel 39:5 Meaning and Commentary

Ezekiel 39:5

Thou shalt fall upon the open field
Some part of his army should fall upon the mountains, and others upon the plain; wherever they will be found, they will be destroyed, either by the sword of the Jews and Christian princes, or by God's judgments from heaven: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord God;
and therefore it should surely come to pass, since no word of his ever fails; this is added to assure of the truth of it, since it might be thought incredible that so large an army should be destroyed.

Ezekiel 39:5 In-Context

3 Then I will knock your bow from your left hand and make your arrows drop from your right hand.
4 You, all your troops, and the peoples who are with you will fall on the mountains of Israel. I will give you as food to every kind of predatory bird and to the wild animals.
5 You will fall on the open field, for I have spoken." [This is] the declaration of the Lord God .
6 "I will send fire against Magog and those who live securely on the coasts and islands. Then they will know that I am the Lord.
7 So I will make My holy name known among My people Israel and will no longer allow it to be profaned. Then the nations will know that I am the Lord, the Holy One in Israel.
