This chapter continues and concludes the prophecy
against Gog and Magog, in whose destruction God crowns his favour
to his people Israel, which shines very brightly after the
scattering of that black cloud in the close of this chapter. Here
is, I. An express prediction of the utter destruction of Gog and
Magog, agreeing with what we had before, ver. 1-7. II. An illustration of the
vastness of that destruction, in three consequences of it: the
burning of their weapons (ver.
8-10), the burning of their slain (ver. 11-16), and the feasting of the
fowls with the dead bodies of those that were unburied, ver. 17-22. III. A declaration of
God's gracious purposes concerning his people Israel, in this and
his other providences concerning them, and a promise of further
mercy that he had yet in store for them, ver. 23-29.
