39 “And ayou, son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, 1the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal; 2 and I will bturn you around and lead you on, cbringing you up from the far north, and bring you against the mountains of Israel. 3 Then I will knock the bow out of your left hand, and cause the arrows to fall out of your right hand. 4 dYou shall 2fall upon the mountains of Israel, you and all your troops and the peoples who are with you; eI will give you to birds of prey of every sort and to the beasts of the field to be devoured. 5 You shall 3fall on 4the open field; for I have spoken,” says the Lord God. 6 f“And I will send fire on Magog and on those who live 5in security in gthe coastlands. Then they shall know that I am the Lord. 7 hSo I will make My holy name known in the midst of My people Israel, and I will not let them iprofane My holy name anymore. jThen the nations shall know that I am the Lord, the Holy One in Israel. 8 kSurely it is coming, and it shall be done,” says the Lord God. “This is the day lof which I have spoken.
9 “Then those who dwell in the cities of Israel will go out and set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and bucklers, the bows and arrows, the 6javelins and spears; and they will make fires with them for seven years. 10 They will not take wood from the field nor cut down any from the forests, because they will make fires with the weapons; mand they will plunder those who plundered them, and pillage those who pillaged them,” says the Lord God.
About The New King James Version
The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
