About Magog / מגוג .

This is the Biblical Magog. For Magog, legendary ancestor of the Irish kings, see Magog.

Magog, son of Japheth. According to the Jewish historian Josephus (37-c. 100), Magog was the ancestor of the Scythians, the collective name for the people north of the Black Sea. Later scholars, relying on the order of tribal names in Ezekiel 38, thought Magog was probably intended originally to be the ancestor of a people who lived between Cappadocia and Media.

In the Bible

"The sons of Japheth: Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras." Genesis 10:2

"The sons of Japheth: Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras." Chronicles 1:5

"And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying: 'Son of man, set thy face toward Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, and say: Thus saith the Lord GOD: Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal; and I will turn thee about, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed most gorgeously, a great company with buckler and shield, all of them handling swords: Persia, Cush, and Put with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah in the uttermost parts of the north, and all his bands; even many peoples with thee." Ezekiel 38:1-6

"And I will send a fire on Magog, and on them that dwell safely in the isles; and they shall know that I am the LORD." Ezekiel 39:6

"And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea." Revelation 20:8

"And the sons of Magog were Elichanaf and Lubal." Jasher 7:4; ספר הישר - פרשת נח. Jasher (Sefer haYashar) is a Hebrewe midrash first published in 1552. The link here is to the 1887 English edition, Salt Lake City, edited by J. H. Parry.

Children: Baoth

Magog, Hebrew מגוג, Greek Μαγωγ, [ ma'gog ], is the second of the seven sons of Japheth mentioned in the Table of Nations in Genesis 10. It may represent Hebrew for "from Gog", though this is far from certain.

Josephus identified the offspring of Magog as the Scythians, a name used in antiquity for peoples north of the Black Sea.[1] According to him, the Greeks called Scythia Magogia (Ant., bk. I, 6).

Isidore of Seville, writing some centuries later, adds that he is also considered ancestor of the Goths, but notes that this is "because of the similarity of the last syllable" (Etymologiae, IX, 89). Johannes Magnus (1488–1544) stated that Magog's sons were Sven and Gethar, who became the ancestors of the Swedes and the Goths.[2] Queen Christina of Sweden reckoned herself as number 249 in a list of kings going back to Magog.

Daniel Juslenius (1676–1752) derived the roots of the Finns from Magog, whose descendants he said migrated to Finland.

It has also been variously conjectured that Magog's offspring were the progenitors of the Slavic peoples known to history.

According to several mediaeval Irish chronicles, most notably the Auraicept na n-Éces and Lebor Gabála Érenn, the Irish race are a composite including descendants of Japheth's son Magog from "Scythia". Baath (Boath), Jobhath, and Fathochta are the three sons of Magog. Partholón, Nemed, Iobath, and Fenius Farsa are among Magog's descendants. Magog was also supposed to have had a grandson called Heber, whose offspring spread throughout the Mediterranean.

There is also a mediaeval Hungarian legend that says the Huns, as well as the Magyars, are descended from twin brothers named Hunor and Magor respectively, who lived by the sea of Azov in the years after the flood, and took wives from the Alans. The version of this legend in the 14th century Chronicon Pictum equates this Magor with Magog, son of Japheth.
