The hand of the Lord was upon me, and brought me forth in the spirit of the Lord: and set me down in the midst of a plain that was full of bones.
And he led me about through them on every side: now they were very many upon the face of the plain, and they were exceeding dry.
And he said to me: Son of man, dost thou think these bones shall live and I answered: O Lord God, thou knowest.
And he said to me: Prophesy concerning these bones; and say to them: Ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.
Thus saith the Lord God to these bones: Behold, I will send spirit into you, and you shall live.
And I will lay sinews upon you, and will cause flesh to grow over you, and will cover you with skin: and I will give you spirit and you shall live, and you shall know that I am the Lord.
