38:1 耶和华的话临到我说,

And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

38:2 人子阿,你要面向玛各地的歌革,就是罗施,米设,土巴的王发预言攻击他,

Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,

38:3 说主耶和华如此说,罗施,米设,土巴的王歌革阿,我与你为敌。

And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

38:4 我必用钩子钩住你的腮颊,调转你,将你和你的军兵,马匹,马兵带出来,都披挂整齐,成了大队,有大小盾牌,各拿刀剑。

And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:

38:5 波斯人,古实人,和弗人(又作利比亚人),各拿盾牌,头上戴盔。

Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:

38:6 歌篾人和他的军队,北方极处的陀迦玛族和他的军队,这许多国的民都同着你。

Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.

38:7 那聚集到你这里的各队都当准备。你自己也要准备,作他们的大帅。

Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.

38:8 过了多日,你必被差派。到末后之年,你必来到脱离刀剑从列国收回之地,到以色列常久荒凉的山上。但那从列国中招聚出来的必在其上安然居住。

After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.

38:9 你和你的军队,并同着你许多国的民,必如暴风上来,如密云遮盖地面。

Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.

38:10 主耶和华如此说,到那时,你心必起意念,图谋恶计,

Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought:

38:11 说,我要上那无城墙的乡村,我要到那安静的民那里,他们都没有城墙,无门,无闩,安然居住。

And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,

38:12 我去要抢财为掳物,夺货为掠物,反手攻击那从前荒凉,现在有人居住之地,又攻击那住世界中间,从列国招聚,得了牲畜财货的民。

To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.

38:13 示巴人,底但人,他施的客商,和其间的少壮狮子都必问你说,你来要抢财为掳物吗。你聚集军队要夺货为掠物吗。要夺取金银,掳去牲畜,财货吗。要抢夺许多财宝为掳物吗。

Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?

38:14 人子阿,你要因此发预言,对歌革说,主耶和华如此说,到我民以色列安然居住之日,你岂不知道吗。

Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord GOD; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it?

38:15 你必从本地,从北方的极处率领许多国的民来,都骑着马,乃一大队极多的军兵。

And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army:

38:16 歌革阿,你必上来攻击我的民以色列,如密云遮盖地面。末后的日子,我必带你来攻击我的地,到我在外邦人眼前,在你身上显为圣的时候,好叫他们认识我。

And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.

38:17 主耶和华如此说,我在古时藉我的仆人以色列的先知所说的,就是你吗。当日他们多年预言我必带你来攻击以色列人。

Thus saith the Lord GOD; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days many years that I would bring thee against them?

38:18 主耶和华说,歌革上来攻击以色列地的时候,我的怒气要从鼻孔里发出。

And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face.

38:19 我发愤恨和烈怒如火说,那日在以色列地必有大震动,

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;

38:20 甚至海中的鱼,天空的鸟,田野的兽,并地上的一切昆虫,和其上的众人,因见我的面就都震动。山岭必崩裂,陡岩必塌陷,墙垣都必坍倒。

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 earth, 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.

38:21 主耶和华说,我必命我的诸山发刀剑来攻击歌革。人都要用刀剑杀害弟兄。

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.

38:22 我必用瘟疫和流血的事刑罚他。我也必将暴雨,大雹与火,并硫磺降与他和他的军队,并他所率领的众民。

And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.

38:23 我必显为大,显为圣,在多国人的眼前显现。他们就知道我是耶和华。

Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD.

以西结书38参考

歌革是个国家吗?还是一个人?
38章 以西结在37章里启示了以色列(神的百姓)将如何从世界各地回到家园。一旦以色列强壮起来,北部的联盟就要向它进攻,为首的是歌革(参启20:8)。他们的目的是要摧毁神的百姓。歌革的联盟从黑海东南部的山区和里海(土耳其中部)的西南部,到今天的伊朗、埃塞俄比亚、利比亚也许还有俄罗斯等地区。歌革可能是个人(他有时被认为是公元前660年路德的吉基王),或者是世间罪恶的象徵。无论是象徵性的还是字义上的,歌革代表了对抗神的全部军事力量。
  许多人说,以西结描述的战斗将在人类历史的最后阶段发生。但在启示录20章中描述的内容和在这里所描述的事件又有许多差别。无论这场战斗发生在哪儿,在何时,信息都是清清楚楚的:神要拯救自己的百姓,在神至高无上的能力前面没有能站得住的敌人。

示巴人、底但人、他施的客商是在维护以色列人的利益吗?
38:13 “示巴”和“底但”是阿拉伯的贸易中心。它们实际上在对歌革说:“你是谁,竟敢夺取我们在贸易上的领袖地位?”接著示巴和底但也会加入这一联盟。他施是西部的主要贸易中心。许多人认为它在西班牙。

不管歌革是来自何方的威胁,神都要介入保护……
38:21 神将直接介入以色列的防御。神要向从北面来的入侵者降下严重的自然灾害。那些受灾的异教国家最终将陷入混乱和痛苦之中。所有对抗神的人终遭毁灭。
