Gog and Magog

Gog and Magog: do you know what modern nations would correspond to this? Or are they symbolical? Or nations we cannot identify? Perhaps Ezekiel refers to literal nations, while Revelation’s use of those terms is symbolical of nations rebelling against God? Here are the texts, your comments are welcome.

  1. “Son of man, set your face toward Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him…

  2. and will come out to deceive the nations that are at the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them for battle; their number is like the sand of the sea.

Do you believe Gog and Magog refer to specific nations?
