לח:יח   וְהָיָה בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא, בְּיוֹם בּוֹא גוֹג עַל-אַדְמַת יִשְׂרָאֵל--נְאֻם, א-דני יקוק:  תַּעֲלֶה חֲמָתִי, בְּאַפִּי.38:18 And it shall come to pass in that day, when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that My fury shall arise up in My nostrils.
יט   וּבְקִנְאָתִי בְאֵשׁ-עֶבְרָתִי, דִּבַּרְתִּי:  אִם-לֹא בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא, יִהְיֶה רַעַשׁ גָּדוֹל, עַל, אַדְמַת יִשְׂרָאֵל.19 For in My jealousy and in the fire of My wrath have I spoken: Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;
כ   וְרָעֲשׁוּ מִפָּנַי דְּגֵי הַיָּם וְעוֹף הַשָּׁמַיִם וְחַיַּת הַשָּׂדֶה, וְכָל-הָרֶמֶשׂ הָרֹמֵשׂ עַל-הָאֲדָמָה, וְכֹל הָאָדָם, אֲשֶׁר עַל-פְּנֵי הָאֲדָמָה; וְנֶהֶרְסוּ הֶהָרִים, וְנָפְלוּ הַמַּדְרֵגוֹת, וְכָל-חוֹמָה, לָאָרֶץ תִּפּוֹל.20 so that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field and all creeping things that creep upon the ground, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at My presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.
כא   וְקָרָאתִי עָלָיו לְכָל-הָרַי חֶרֶב, נְאֻם א-דני יקוק:  חֶרֶב אִישׁ, בְּאָחִיו תִּהְיֶה.21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD; every man's sword shall be against his brother.
כב   וְנִשְׁפַּטְתִּי אִתּוֹ, בְּדֶבֶר וּבְדָם; וְגֶשֶׁם שׁוֹטֵף וְאַבְנֵי אֶלְגָּבִישׁ אֵשׁ וְגָפְרִית, אַמְטִיר עָלָיו וְעַל-אֲגַפָּיו, וְעַל-עַמִּים רַבִּים, אֲשֶׁר אִתּוֹ.22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will cause to rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many peoples that are with him, an overflowing shower, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.
כג   וְהִתְגַּדִּלְתִּי, וְהִתְקַדִּשְׁתִּי, וְנוֹדַעְתִּי, לְעֵינֵי גּוֹיִם רַבִּים; וְיָדְעוּ, כִּי-אֲנִי יקוק23 Thus will I magnify Myself, and sanctify Myself, and I will make Myself known in the eyes of many nations; and they shall know that I am the LORD.
לט:א   וְאַתָּה בֶן-אָדָם, הִנָּבֵא עַל-גּוֹג, וְאָמַרְתָּ, כֹּה אָמַר א-דני יקוק:  הִנְנִי אֵלֶיךָ, גּוֹג--נְשִׂיא, רֹאשׁ מֶשֶׁךְ וְתֻבָל.39:1 And thou, son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say: Thus saith the Lord GOD: Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal;
ב   וְשֹׁבַבְתִּיךָ, וְשִׁשֵּׁאתִיךָ, וְהַעֲלִיתִיךָ, מִיַּרְכְּתֵי צָפוֹן; וַהֲבִאוֹתִךָ, עַל-הָרֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל.2 and I will turn thee about and lead thee on, and will cause thee to come up from the uttermost parts of the north; and I will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel;
ג   וְהִכֵּיתִי קַשְׁתְּךָ, מִיַּד שְׂמֹאולֶךָ; וְחִצֶּיךָ, מִיַּד יְמִינְךָ אַפִּיל.3 and I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.
ד   עַל-הָרֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל תִּפּוֹל, אַתָּה וְכָל-אֲגַפֶּיךָ, וְעַמִּים, אֲשֶׁר אִתָּךְ:  לְעֵיט צִפּוֹר כָּל-כָּנָף וְחַיַּת הַשָּׂדֶה, נְתַתִּיךָ לְאָכְלָה.4 Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the peoples that are with thee; I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort and to the beasts of the field, to be devoured.
ה   עַל-פְּנֵי הַשָּׂדֶה, תִּפּוֹל:  כִּי אֲנִי דִבַּרְתִּי, נְאֻם א-דני יקוק.5 Thou shalt fall upon the open field; for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.
ו   וְשִׁלַּחְתִּי-אֵשׁ בְּמָגוֹג, וּבְיֹשְׁבֵי הָאִיִּים לָבֶטַח; וְיָדְעוּ, כִּי-אֲנִי יקוק.6 And I will send a fire on Magog, and on them that dwell safely in the isles; and they shall know that I am the LORD.
ז   וְאֶת-שֵׁם קָדְשִׁי אוֹדִיעַ, בְּתוֹךְ עַמִּי יִשְׂרָאֵל, וְלֹא-אַחֵל אֶת-שֵׁם-קָדְשִׁי, עוֹד; וְיָדְעוּ הַגּוֹיִם כִּי-אֲנִי יקוק, קָדוֹשׁ בְּיִשְׂרָאֵל.7 And My holy name will I make known in the midst of My people Israel; neither will I suffer My holy name to be profaned any more; and the nations shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.
ח   הִנֵּה בָאָה וְנִהְיָתָה, נְאֻם א-דני יקוק:  הוּא הַיּוֹם, אֲשֶׁר דִּבַּרְתִּי.8 Behold, it cometh, and it shall be done, saith the Lord GOD; This is the day whereof I have spoken.
ט   וְיָצְאוּ יֹשְׁבֵי עָרֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, וּבִעֲרוּ וְהִשִּׂיקוּ בְּנֶשֶׁק וּמָגֵן וְצִנָּה בְּקֶשֶׁת וּבְחִצִּים, וּבְמַקֵּל יָד, וּבְרֹמַח; וּבִעֲרוּ בָהֶם אֵשׁ, שֶׁבַע שָׁנִים.9 And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall make fires of the weapons and use them as fuel, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the hand-staves, and the spears, and they shall make fires of them seven years;
י   וְלֹא-יִשְׂאוּ עֵצִים מִן-הַשָּׂדֶה, וְלֹא יַחְטְבוּ מִן-הַיְּעָרִים--כִּי בַנֶּשֶׁק, יְבַעֲרוּ-אֵשׁ; וְשָׁלְלוּ אֶת-שֹׁלְלֵיהֶם, וּבָזְזוּ אֶת-בֹּזְזֵיהֶם--נְאֻם, א-דני יקוק10 so that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests, for they shall make fires of the weapons; and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord GOD.
יא   וְהָיָה בַיּוֹם הַהוּא אֶתֵּן לְגוֹג מְקוֹם-שָׁם קֶבֶר בְּיִשְׂרָאֵל, גֵּי הָעֹבְרִים קִדְמַת הַיָּם, וְחֹסֶמֶת הִיא, אֶת-הָעֹבְרִים; וְקָבְרוּ שָׁם, אֶת-גּוֹג וְאֶת-כָּל-הֲמוֹנֹה, וְקָרְאוּ, גֵּיא הֲמוֹן גּוֹג.11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place fit for burial in Israel, the valley of them that pass through on the east of the sea; and it shall stop them that pass through; and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude; and they shall call it the valley of Hamon-gog.
יב   וּקְבָרוּם בֵּית יִשְׂרָאֵל, לְמַעַן טַהֵר אֶת-הָאָרֶץ, שִׁבְעָה, חֳדָשִׁים.12 And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying them, that they may cleanse the land.
יג   וְקָבְרוּ כָּל-עַם הָאָרֶץ, וְהָיָה לָהֶם לְשֵׁם--יוֹם, הִכָּבְדִי, נְאֻם, א-דני יקוק.13 Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them, and it shall be to them a renown; in the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord GOD.
יד   וְאַנְשֵׁי תָמִיד יַבְדִּילוּ, עֹבְרִים בָּאָרֶץ, מְקַבְּרִים אֶת-הָעֹבְרִים אֶת-הַנּוֹתָרִים עַל-פְּנֵי הָאָרֶץ, לְטַהֲרָהּ--מִקְצֵה שִׁבְעָה-חֳדָשִׁים, יַחְקֹרוּ.14 And they shall set apart men of continual employment, that shall pass through the land to bury with them that pass through those that remain upon the face of the land, to cleanse it; after the end of seven months shall they search.
טו   וְעָבְרוּ הָעֹבְרִים, בָּאָרֶץ, וְרָאָה עֶצֶם אָדָם, וּבָנָה אֶצְלוֹ צִיּוּן--עַד קָבְרוּ אֹתוֹ הַמְקַבְּרִים, אֶל-גֵּיא הֲמוֹן גּוֹג.15 And when they that pass through shall pass through the land, and any seeth a man's bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in the valley of Hamon-gog.
טז   וְגַם שֶׁם-עִיר הֲמוֹנָה, וְטִהֲרוּ הָאָרֶץ. 16 And Hamonah shall also be the name of a city. Thus shall they cleanse the land.
