Chapter Summary

Our textual-comparative methodology identifies five oracles in Ezekiel chapter 38. First oracle describes what God will do. In Second oracle, the Lord speaks to Gog, revealing Gog's personal reasons for attacking Israel. God is presented as being in complete control. The third oracle now reverts back to the Lord speaking through the prophet to Gog, informing what will happen in his upcoming gathering for the intended plunder of Israel. Fourth oracle, If v. 17 is a rhetorical question about Gog as the beginning of God's speech to the prophet, then it also anticipates a ?yes' answer as it reflects on the prophetic oracles of judgement against Israel's enemies. Fifth oracle, addressed to the prophet, focuses on what the Lord will do when Gog finally attacks, and on the three spheres of sea, air and earth that will be impacted.
