As the flock for sacrifice, as the flock of Jerusalem in her appointed feasts, so the waste cities will be filled with flocks of men. Then they will know that I am Yahweh.’ ”
Yahweh’s hand was on me, and he brought me out in Yahweh’s Spirit, and set me down in the middle of the valley; and it was full of bones.
He caused me to pass by them all around: and behold, there were very many in the open valley; and behold, they were very dry.
He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I answered, “Lord Yahweh, you know.”
Again he said to me, “Prophesy over these bones, and tell them, ‘You dry bones, hear Yahweh‘s word. The Lord Yahweh says to these bones: “Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and you will live.
I will lay sinews on you, and will bring up flesh on you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and you will live.
Then you will know that I am Yahweh.” ’ ”
