For as long as life is in me, And the breath of God is in my nostrils, (Job 27:3)

"The Spirit of God has made me, And the breath of the Almighty gives me life. (Job 33:4)

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 on these slain, that they come to life.""' (Ezekiel 37:9)

So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they came to life and stood on their feet, an exceedingly great army. (Ezekiel 37:10)

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 has perished. We are completely cut off.' (Ezekiel 37:11)

"Therefore prophesy and say to them, `Thus says the Lord GOD, "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. (Ezekiel 37:12)

"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. (Ezekiel 37:13)

"I will put My Spirit 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.' " (Ezekiel 37:14)
