9 And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the 7 hand-staves and the spears, and they shall 8 burn g them with fire seven years:

10 So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil h those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them. saith the Lord GOD.

11 ¶ And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of 10 Hamon-gog. 12 And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse i the land.

13 Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I k shall be glorified, saith the Lord GOD.
