The hand of the lord was upon me and carried me out in the spirit of the lord, and set me down in the midst
of the valley which was full of bones,
2 and caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley;
and, lo, they were very dry.
3 and he said unto me, son of man, can these bones live? i answered, oh lord god, thou knowest.
4 again he said unto me, prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, oh ye dry bones, hear
the word of the lord.
5 thus saith the lord god unto the bones; behold, i will cause breath to enter into you, and
ye shall live:
6 and I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin,
and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the lord. Ezekiel
