(Eze 37:1) 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,
(Eze 37:2) 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.
(Eze 37:3) And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? and I answered, O Lord God, thou knowest.
(Eze 37:4) Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.
(Eze 37:5) Thus saith the Lord God unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:
(Eze 37:6) 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.
(Eze 37:7) So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.
(Eze 37:8) And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but {there was} no breath in them.
(Eze 37:9) Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord God; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.
(Eze 37:10) So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.
(Eze 37:11) Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.
(Eze 37:12) Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.
(Eze 37:13) And ye shall know that I {am} the Lord, when I have opened your graves, O My people, and brought you up out of your graves,
(Eze 37:14) And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the Lord have spoken {it}, and performed {it}, saith the Lord.
(Eze 37:15) The word of the Lord came again unto me, saying,
(Eze 37:16) Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim and {for} all the house of Israel his companions:
(Eze 37:17) And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand.
(Eze 37:18) And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee, saying, Wilt thou not shew us what thou {meanest} by these?
(Eze 37:19) Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which {is} in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, {even} with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand.
(Eze 37:20) And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand before their eyes.
(Eze 37:21) And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:
(Eze 37:22) And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all.
(Eze 37:23) Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwellingplaces, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.
(Eze 37:24) And David my servant {shall be} king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them.
(Eze 37:25) And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, {even} they, and their children, and their children's children for ever: and my servant David {shall be} their prince for ever.
(Eze 37:26) Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.
(Eze 37:27) My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
(Eze 37:28) And the heathen shall know that I the Lord do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore. Previous chapter, Next chapter, Previous Book, Next Book
