Magog

Additional Links

Ma'gog. (region of Gog). In Genesis 10:2, Magog appears as the second son of Japheth; in Ezekiel 38:2; Ezekiel 39:1; Ezekiel 39:6, it appears as a country or people of which Gog was the prince. The notices of Magog would lead us to fix a northern locality: it is expressly stated by Ezekiel that "he was to come up from the sides of the north," Ezekiel 39:2, from a country adjacent to that of Togarmah or Armenia, , and not far from "the isles" or maritime regions of Europe. Ezekiel 39:6. The people of Magog further appear as having a force of cavalry, Ezekiel 38:16, and as armed with the bow. Ezekiel 39:3. From the above data, may conclude that Magog represents the important race of the Scythians.
