I felt the power of the Lord on me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the Lord and put me down in the middle of a valley. It was full of bones.
He led me around among the bones, and I saw that there were many bones in the valley and that they were very dry.
Then he asked me, "Human, can these bones live?" I answered, "Lord God, only you know."
He said to me, "Prophesy to these bones and say to them, 'Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.
This is what the Lord God says to the bones: I will cause breath to enter you so you will come to life.
I will put muscles on you and flesh on you and cover you with skin. Then I will put breath in you so you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord.'"
