Then he said to me, “Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel.
Behold, they say, ‘Our bones are dried up, and our hope is lost. We are completely cut off.’ Therefore prophesy, and tell them, ‘The Lord Yahweh says:
“Behold, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, my people;
and I will bring you into the land of Israel.
You will know that I am Yahweh, when I have opened your graves, and caused you to come up out of your graves, my people.
I will put my Spirit in you, and you will live. Then I will place you in your own land;
and you will know that I, Yahweh, have spoken it and performed it,” says Yahweh.’ ”
