Gog, in the Bible. In the Book of Ezekiel, Gog is a leader, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal who will attack Israel and be defeated in the last days. Magog is his country. The same theme surfaces in the Book of Revelation, where the assailants are Gog and Magog. They represent the nations of the world pitted against God in the final days.
