Commentary on
Ezekiel 37:1-10

Vision of the Valley of Dry Bones

37:1  The hand of Yehuveh was upon Me, and carried Me out in the spirit of Yehuveh, and set Me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones,
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.
37:3  And He said unto Me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Yehuveh Elohim, Thou knowest.
37:4  Again He said unto Me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of Yehuveh.
37:5  Thus saith Yehuveh Elohim unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:
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 Yehuveh.
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.
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.
37:9  Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith Yehuveh Elohim; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.
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.
