1 By the resurrection of dry bones, 11 the dead hope of Israel

is revived. 15 By the uniting of two sticks, 18 is showed the
incorporation of Israel into Judah. 20 The promises of
Christ's kingdom. [BEFORE CHRIST 587.]

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? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest.

4 Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.

11 Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, hOur bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts. 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.


13 And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, my people, and brought you up out of graves,


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.

15 ¶ The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,

16 Moreover, thou son of man, "take 5 Thus saith the Lord God unto these thee one stick, and write upon it, For Jubones; Behold, I will cause breath to en-dah, and for "the children of Israel his ter 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 shall live; and ye shall know that I am the Lord.


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.

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.

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.
