The following entry is part of a commentary on Ezekiel 36-39, which is fictionalized in my book, The Last Aliyah – Book 1 of The Time of Jacob’s Trouble trilogy.
Ezekiel 39:13 – Yea, all the people of the land shall bury [them]; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord GOD.
In making all the people of the land bury the corpses of the invaders, it will be a continual reminder to them of how dramatically God has saved them, and they will see His salvation first-hand, and not just on television.
Ezekiel 39:14 – And they shall sever out men of continual employment, passing through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search.
The huge hordes of soldiers and such will be the first to be buried, but after 7 months, they will be finished burying them and then will need to comb through the entire land and bury those enemies who were scattered (from plane crashes and such).
Not only will the “professionals” of Israel be searching and burying the dead, but there will be foreign professionals helping them also.
Ezekiel 39:15 – And the passengers [that] pass through the land, when [any] seeth a man’s bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in the valley of Hamongog.
These “passengers” will probably be tourists from all over the world who have come to see the destruction first-hand for themselves.
The marking of a discovered bone implies that they may be radioactive or be tainted with biogical or chemical weapons residue. In a toxic cleanup, people mark the dangerous areas and then have the professionals safely come in and dispose of the material/remains.
