Vision of the Valley of Dry Bones

1 The hand R1323 of the LORD was upon me, and He brought R1324 me out by F533 the Spirit of the LORD and set me down in the middle of the valley; R1325 and it was full of bones. 2 He caused me to pass among them round about, and behold, there were very many on the surface of the valley; and lo, they were very dry. 3 He said to me, "Son of man, can R1326 these bones live?" And I answered, "O Lord GOD F534 , You R1327 know." 4 Again He said to me, "Prophesy R1328 over these bones and say to them, `O dry bones, hear R1329 the word of the LORD.' 5 "Thus says the Lord GOD to these bones, `Behold, I will cause breath R1330 F535 to enter you that you may come to life. 6 `I will put sinews on you, make flesh grow back on you, cover you with skin and put breath in you that you may come alive; and you will know R1331 that I am the LORD.' "

7 So I prophesied as R1332 I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a noise, F536 and behold, a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to its bone. 8 And I looked, and behold, sinews were on them, and flesh grew and skin covered them; but there was no breath in them. 9 Then He said to me, "Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, `Thus says the Lord GOD, "Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe R1333 on these slain, that they come R1334 to life.""' 10 So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath R1335 came into them, and they came to life and stood on their feet, an exceedingly R1336 great army.

The Vision Explained

11 Then He said to me, "Son of man, these bones are the whole R1337 house of Israel; behold, they say, `Our bones R1338 are dried up and our hope has perished. We are completely F537 cut R1339 off.' 12 "Therefore prophesy and say to them, `Thus says the Lord GOD, "Behold, I will open your graves and cause R1340 you to come up out of your graves, My people; and I will bring you into the land of Israel. 13 "Then you will know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves and caused you to come up out of your graves, My people. 14 "I will put R1341 My Spirit F538 within you and you will come to life, and I will place you on your own land. Then you will know that I, the LORD, have spoken and done it," declares the LORD.' "

Reunion of Judah and Israel

15 The word of the LORD came again to me saying, 16 "And you, son of man, take for yourself one R1342 stick and write on it, `For Judah R1343 and for the sons of Israel, his companions'; then take another stick and write on it, `For Joseph, R1344 the stick of Ephraim and all the house of Israel, his companions.' 17 "Then join R1345 them for yourself one to another into one stick, that they may become one in your hand. 18 "When the sons of your people speak to you saying, `Will you not declare to us what R1346 you mean by these?' 19 say to them, `Thus says the Lord GOD, "Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel, his companions; and I will put them with it, with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they will be one in My hand."' 20 "The sticks on which you write will be in your hand before their eyes. 21 "Say to them, `Thus says the Lord GOD, "Behold, I will take R1347 the sons of Israel from among the nations where they have gone, and I will gather them from every side and bring them into their own land; 22 and I will make them one R1348 nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel; and one R1349 king will be king for all of them; and they will no longer be two nations and no longer be divided into two kingdoms. 23 "They will no R1350 longer defile themselves with their idols, or with their detestable things, or with any of their transgressions; but I R1351 will deliver them from all their dwelling F539 places in which they have sinned, and will cleanse them. And they will be My people, and I will be their God.

The Davidic Kingdom

24 "My servant David R1352 will be king over them, and they will all have one R1353 shepherd; and they will walk in My ordinances and keep My statutes and observe them. 25 "They will live on the land that I gave to Jacob My servant, in which your fathers lived; and they will live on it, they, and their sons and their sons' sons, forever; and David R1354 My servant will be their prince forever. 26 "I will make a covenant R1355 of peace with them; it will be an everlasting R1356 covenant with them. And I will place F540 them and multiply R1357 them, and will set My sanctuary R1358 in their midst forever. 27 "My dwelling R1359 place also will be with them; and I R1360 will be their God, and they will be My people. 28 "And the nations will know that I am the LORD who R1361 sanctifies Israel, when My sanctuary is in their midst forever.""'
