1 Minulle tuli tämä Herran sana:

2 "Ihmislapsi, käännä kasvosi kohti Googia Maagogin maassa, Roosin, Mesekin ja Tuubalin ruhtinasta, ja ennusta häntä vastaan

3 ja sano: Näin sanoo Herra, Herra: Katso, minä käyn sinun kimppuusi, Goog, sinä Roosin, Mesekin ja Tuubalin ruhtinas.

4 Minä kuljetan sinua, panen koukut sinun leukoihisi ja nostatan sotaan sinut ja kaiken sinun sotaväkesi: hevoset ja ratsumiehet, kaikki pulskasti puettuja, suuren joukon suurine ja pienine kilpineen, miekankantajia kaikki.

5 Persia, Etiopia ja Puut ovat heidän kanssansa, kilvet ja kypärit on heillä kaikilla.

6 Goomer ja kaikki sen sotalaumat, Toogarman heimo pohjan periltä ja kaikki sen sotalaumat-lukuisat kansat ovat sinun kanssasi.

7 Ole valmis, varustaudu, sinä ja kaikki joukkosi, jotka ovat kokoontuneet sinun luoksesi, ja ole sinä varalla heitä varten.

8 Pitkien aikojen perästä sinä saat määräyksen, vuotten lopulla sinun on karattava maahan, joka on tointunut miekan jäljiltä, koottu monien kansain seasta, -mentävä Israelin vuorille, jotka kauan aikaa olivat olleet rauniomaana; se on tuotu pois kansojen seasta, ja he asuvat turvallisina kaikki tyynni.

9 Sinä hyökkäät kuin rajuilma, tulet kuin pilvi, pettääksesi maan, sinä ja kaikki sotalaumasi ja lukuisat kansat, jotka ovat sinun kanssasi.

10 Näin sanoo Herra, Herra: Mutta sinä päivänä tulee mieleesi jotakin, ja sinä mietit pahan juonen

11 ja sanot: Minä hyökkään suojattomaan maahan, karkaan rauhallisten ihmisten kimppuun, jotka asuvat turvallisina-asuvat muuria vailla kaikki tyynni, ja joilla ei ole salpoja, ei ovia.

12 Sinä aiot saalista saada, ryöstettävää ryöstää, ojentaa kätesi raunioita kohti, jotka on saatu asutuiksi, ja kansaa kohti, joka on koottu pakanakansain seasta, joka on hankkinut karjaa ja omaisuutta ja asuu maan navassa.

13 Saba ja Dedan ja Tarsiin kauppiaat ja kaikki heidän nuoret jalopeuransa kyselevät sinulta: 'Oletko sinä menossa saalista saamaan, ryöstettävää ryöstämään? Oletko koonnut joukkosi kantamaan hopeata ja kultaa, ottamaan karjaa ja omaisuutta, suurta saalista saamaan?'

14 Sentähden ennusta, ihmislapsi, ja sano Googille: Näin sanoo Herra, Herra: Sinä päivänä sinä kyllä huomaat, että minun kansani Israel asuu turvallisena,

15 ja lähdet asuinpaikastasi pohjan periltä, sinä ja sinun kanssasi lukuisat kansat, jotka kaikki ratsastavat hevosilla: suuri joukko, lukuisa sotaväki.

16 Sinä hyökkäät minun kansani Israelin kimppuun kuin pilvi, peittääksesi maan. Päivien lopulla on tämä tapahtuva. Ja minä annan sinun karata maahani, että pakanakansat tulisivat tuntemaan minut, kun minä osoitan pyhyyteni sinussa, Goog, heidän silmäinsä edessä.

17 Näin sanoo Herra, Herra: Etkö se ole sinä, josta minä muinaisina päivinä puhuin palvelijaini, Israelin profeettain, kautta, jotka niinä päivinä ennustivat, vuodesta vuoteen, että minä annan sinun karata heidän kimppuunsa?

18 Mutta sinä päivänä, jona Goog karkaa Israelin maahan, sanoo Herra, Herra, nousee minun vihani hehku.

19 Kiivaudessani, tuimuuteni tulessa minä sanon: Totisesti tulee sinä päivänä suuri maanjäristys Israelin maahan.

20 Ja minun edessäni vapisevat meren kalat ja taivaan linnut ja metsän eläimet ja kaikki maassa liikkuvat matelijat ja kaikki ihmiset, jotka maan pinnalla ovat; ja vuoret luhistuvat, ja vuorenpengermät sortuvat, ja kaikki muurit sortuvat maahan.

21 Ja minä kutsun häntä vastaan kaikille vuorilleni miekan, sanoo Herra, Herra: toisen miekka on oleva toista vastaan.

22 Minä käyn oikeutta hänen kanssansa rutolla ja verellä. Ja minä annan sataa kaatosadetta, raekiviä, tulta ja tulikiveä hänen päällensä, hänen sotalaumojensa päälle ja lukuisain kansojen päälle, jotka hänen kanssansa ovat.

23 Niin minä osoitan suuruuteni ja pyhyyteni sekä teen itseni tunnetuksi lukuisain pakanakansain silmien edessä. Ja he tulevat tietämään, että minä olen Herra."

Apocalypse Revealed (Rogers translation)

405. And a third of the living creatures in the sea died. (8:9) This symbolically means that those who had lived that faith and continued to live it could not be reformed and receive life.

A third symbolizes all such, as said above. Creatures mean people who can be reformed (no. 290). The reason is that to create means, symbolically, to reform (no. 254). Their living means, symbolically, to be able by reformation to receive life. That they died means, symbolically, that people who live that faith alone cannot receive life. They cannot, because people are all reformed by a faith united to charity, thus by a faith accompanying charity, and none by faith alone; for charity is the life of faith.

(Verweise: Ezekiel 47:8-11)


[2] Since in the spiritual world the affections and consequent perceptions and thoughts of spirits and angels appear at a distance in the forms of animals or creatures on the earth called beasts, of creatures in the air called birds, and of creatures in the sea called fish, therefore the Word so often mentions beasts, birds, and fish, which nevertheless have precisely the meaning stated. So for example in the following places:

...Jehovah has a quarrel with the inhabitants of the land, for there is no truth or mercy or knowledge of God... And everyone who dwells in it will waste away along with the beast of the field and the bird of the air; even the fish of the sea will be gathered up. (Hosea 4:1, 3)

I will consume man and beast..., the bird of the heavens, the fish of the sea, ...the stumbling blocks along with the impious... (Zephaniah 1:3)

There shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel, and the fish of the sea, the bird of the heavens, and the beast of the field... shall tremble before Me. (Ezekiel 38:18-20)

You have made Him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet... the beasts of the fields, the bird of the air, and the fish of the sea that pass through the path of the seas. (Psalms 8:6-8)

The latter is said of the Lord.

Pray ask the beasts, and they will teach you; or the birds of the air, and they will inform you...; and the fish of the sea will tell you. Who of all these does not know that the hand of Jehovah has done this? (Job 12:7-9)

And in many other places as well.

(Verweise: Acts of the Apostles 12:7-9)


[3] Fish, moreover, and creatures of the sea, as they are called here, mean the affections and consequent thoughts of such people as are concerned with general truths, and so who take more from a natural source than from a spiritual one. These people are meant by fish in the preceding passages, and also in the following ones:

By My rebuke I dry up the sea, I make the rivers a wilderness; their fish stink... and die of thirst. (Isaiah 50:2)

...the king of Egypt, a great whale, you who lie in the midst of your rivers, you said, "The river is mine; I made myself..".. (Therefore) I will cause the fish of your rivers to stick to your scales..., and I will leave you in the wilderness, you and all the fish of your rivers. (Ezekiel 29:3-5)

This was addressed to the king of Egypt, because Egypt symbolizes the natural level divorced from the spiritual one, and so the fish of his rivers mean people governed by doctrines, who because of them are caught up in faith separated from charity, a faith that is simply knowledge.

Because of that separation, moreover, one of the miracles in Egypt was the turning of their waters into blood, so that the fish died (Exodus 7:17-25, Psalms 105:29).

[4] Furthermore:

Why do You make mankind like fish of the sea...? Everyone draws them up with a hook, and gathers them in a net... (Habakkuk 1:14-16)

Fish here stand for people concerned with general truths and caught up in faith divorced from charity. In contrast, fish stand for people concerned with general truths and governed by a faith conjoined with charity in Ezekiel:

He said to me: "These waters flowing to the eastern boundary... enter the sea, (from which comes) every living soul that creeps... and very much fish... ...fishermen will stand by it... with a spreading of their nets. Its fish will be of the same kinds as the fish of the Great Sea, exceedingly many. (Ezekiel 47:1, 8-10)

In Matthew:

(Jesus said,) the kingdom of heaven is like a net cast into the sea, and they gathered (fish).... And they put the good ones into vessels and threw the bad away. (Matthew 13:47-49)

And in Jeremiah:

I will bring (the children of Israel) back into their land... And I will send for many fishermen...(who) shall fish them. (Jeremiah 16:15-16)

(Verweise: Jeremiah 16:16; Matthew 13:47-48)


[5] Consequently, anyone who knows that fish symbolize people and things of the kind stated, can see the following: Why the Lord chose fishermen to be His disciples, and said,

Come after Me, and I will make you fishers of men. (Matthew 4:18-19)

Why the disciples, with the Lord's blessing, caught a huge multitude of fish, and the Lord said to Peter,

Do not be afraid. From now on you will catch men. (Luke 5:2-10)

Why, when they wished to exact tribute from the Lord, He told Peter to go to the sea and draw out a fish, and to give them the coin found in it for Him and for himself (Matthew 16:24-27).

Why, after His resurrection, the Lord gave His disciples fish and bread to eat (John 21:2-13).

And why He told them to "go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature" (Mark 16:15). For the nations they were converting possessed only general truths, and were concerned more with natural things than spiritual ones.
