Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

מָגוֹג [Magog], pr.n. of a son of Japhet, Genesis 10:2 also of a region, and a great and powerful people of the same name, inhabiting the extreme recesses of the north, who are at some time to invade the Holy Land (Eze. chap. 38, 39 ). We are to understand just the same nations as the Greeks comprised under the name of Scythians (Joseph. Arch. i. 6, § 1). The Arabs call them يَأْجُوجُ وَمَأْجُوجُ Yajûj and Majûj, and they have many fables about them. Their king is called גּוֹנ, which see. See Koran, Sur. xviii. 94-99; xxi. 96; Assemani Biblioth. Orient. t. iii. p. ii. pp. 16, 17, 20; D’Herbelot, Biblioth. Orient. art. Jagiugh. In the same manner are joined حين وماحين Chin and Machin, i.e. the Chinese. The syllable ma in these names denoting place, region, has of late been learnedly discussed by Frähn, De Musei Spreviziani Nummis Cuficis, page 95.
