The fall of Gog (Ezek 39:3-39:5)

“‘I will strike

Your bow

From your left hand.

I will make

Your arrows

Drop out

Of your right hand.

You shall fall

Upon the mountains

Of Israel.

You!

All your troops!

The people

That are with you!

I will give you

To the birds

Of prey

Of every sort.

I will give you

To the wild animals

To be devoured.

You shall fall

In the open field.

I have spoken.’

Says Yahweh God!”

Suddenly, after enticing Gog to attack the Israelite mountains, Yahweh struck back at him. Yahweh was going to knock the bow out of his left hand and, at the same time, he was going to have him drop the arrows from his right hand. Gog and his army were then going to fall in the mountains of Israel. Not just Gog, but all his troops and all the people with them would be given over to the birds of prey and the wild animals to be devoured in the open fields. There should be no doubt, because Yahweh God has spoken.

The death of King Ahab (2 Chr 18:33-18:34)

But a certain man drew his bow and unknowingly struck the king of Israel between the scale armor and the breastplate. So King Ahab said to the driver of his chariot. ‘Turn around. Carry me out of the battle, for I am wounded.’ The battle grew hot that day. The king of Israel propped himself up in his chariot facing the Arameans, until evening. Then at sunset he died.”

Once again, this is almost word for word from 1 Kings, chapter 22. King Ahab was struck by a stray arrow that caused him to bleed in his chariot. He stayed in his chariot as he tried to leave the battle field. He died at sunset that day. Here there is no mention of his blood dripping to the bottom of his chariot, nor is there any indication that the troops scattered. However, the prophecy of Micaiah was happening as he said it would.
