Rosh Means "Head"

The Hebrew term ‘ROSH’ in the book of Ezekiel is not a proper name, but the common Hebrew noun for “head.”   Certain interpretative schools claim the Hebrew word ‘ rosh ’ in the 38 th  chapter of  Ezekiel  refers to  Rus , the name of the medieval kingdom of Kievan  Rus . From this, it is argued, Ezekiel’s prophecy refers to modern Russia. However, in the Hebrew Bible ‘ rosh ’ consistently means “head,” including in  Ezekiel 38 .

Gog and Magog

Revelation identifies Gog and Magog as the nations from the four corners of the Earth that attack the saints .  The prophet Ezekiel received a vision of an invading army composed of regional nations that attacked Israel from the north. The force was led by “ Gog of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal ” - ( KJV ). But before it succeeded, this army was destroyed by Yahweh “ on the mountains of Israel .”
