Ezekiel 39-40

Ezekiel 39-40

Chapter 39: Gog and Magog are destroyed

The slaughter and burial of the forces of Gog and Magog are described. For seven years they burn the weapons of war and for seven months they bury the dead. The Lord will have mercy on the whole house of Israel, and He shall restore it. The Lord will no longer hide His face from them.

Chapter 40: Ezekiel sees the Temple

In the fourteenth year after the destruction of Jerusalem, Ezekiel has a vision of a man with an appearance of brass, who had a line of flax in his hand and a measuring reed. The Temple is described: the exact dimensions of the east, north and south gates are given. There is further description of the eight tables for the preparation of sacrifices, the chambers, and the porch. All measurements are given precisely in cubits.
