The relevant passages predict: At the time of the end the king of the south shall attack him. [And]47 the king of the north will rush upon him like a whirlwind, with chariots and horsemen and many ships. . But reports from the east . . will alarm him, and he shall go out in great fury to bring ruin and complete destruction to many.

Scofield was raised an Episcopalian, served in the Confederate army, started life as an attorney, fell on hard times, and turned to premillennialism as a result of a conversion experience. He was not formally trained as a clergyman, but he served as a Congregationalist minister in Dallas, Texas, and Northfield, Massachusetts, and then as a Southern Presbyterian minister in New York. 72 Scofield’s major contribution was his Study Bible, first published in 1909 by Oxford University Press, revised and expanded in 1917, and further revised by others in 1967.
