The hand of the Lord was on me, and He brought me out by His Spirit and set me down in the middle of the valley; it was full of bones.
He led me all around them. There were a great many of them on the surface of the valley, and they were very dry.
Then He said to me, "Son of man, can these bones live?" I replied, "Lord God , [only] You know."
He said to me, "Prophesy concerning these bones and say to them: Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord!
This is what the Lord God says to these bones: I will cause breath to enter you, and you will live.
I will put tendons on you, make flesh grow on you, and cover you with skin. I will put breath in you so that you come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord."
