Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 38:8

_ _ thou shall be visited — in wrath, by God (Isaiah 29:6). Probably there is allusion to Isaiah 24:21, Isaiah 24:22, “The host of the high ones ... shall be gathered ... as prisoners ... in the pit ... and after many days shall they be visited.” I therefore prefer English Version to Grotius rendering, “Thou shalt get the command” of the expedition. The “after many days” is defined by “in the latter years,” that is, in the times just before the coming of Messiah, namely, under Antiochus, before His first coming; under Antichrist, before His second coming.

_ _ the mountains of Israel ... always waste — that is, waste during the long period of the captivity, the earnest of the much longer period of Judea’s present desolation (to which the language “always waste” more fully applies). This marks the impious atrocity of the act, to assail God’s people, who had only begun to recover from their protracted calamities.

_ _ but it is brought ... and they shall dwell — rather, “And they (the Israelites) were brought ... dwelt safely” [Fairbairn]. English Version means, “Against Israel, which has been waste, but which (that is, whose people) is now (at the time of the invasion) brought forth out of the nations where they were dispersed, and shall be found by the invader dwelling securely, so as to seem an easy prey to him.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 38:1-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 38:8

After many days — In the latter days of the Messiah's kingdom among men. In the later years — These must be cotemporary with the many days already mentioned. Thou — Gog with all thy numbers. The land — The land of the Jews, a people recovered from captivity, into which the sword of their enemy had brought them. Always waste — It is already two thousand four hundred years since the ten tribes were carried away by Salmanezer. But it — The land of Canaan, that is, the people of it.
