Ezekiel 38:2 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Son of man, turn your face against Gog[a] of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him.

Footnotes:

  1. 38:2 Gog: the name is symbolic, probably derived from Gyges, king of Lydia. The gloss Magog may be an Akkadian expression, mat-Gog, “the land of Gog.” Meshech and Tubal, as well as Gomer and Beth-togarmah (v. 6), were countries around the Black Sea, the northernmost countries known to the Israelites. The north was the traditional direction from which invasion was expected; cf. Jer 1:13–15.
