(每日读经5/23) 以西结书 - Ezekiel 37.1-14
The hand of Jehovah came upon me, and He brought me out in the Spirit of Jehovah and set me down in the midst of the valley; and it was full of bones.
And He caused me to pass all around among them, and there were very many on the surface of the valley, and they were also very dry.
And He said to me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord Jehovah, You know.
Then He said to me, Prophesy over these bones, and say to them, O dry bones, hear the word of Jehovah.
Thus says the Lord Jehovah to these bones: I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live.
And I will put sinews on you and bring flesh back on you and cover you with skin and put breath in you, and you shall live; and you will know that I am Jehovah.
So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I prophesied, there was a noise, and suddenly, a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to its bone.
And I looked, and there were sinews on them, and flesh came back, and skin covered them over; but there was no breath in them.
Then He said to me, Prophesy to the wind; prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus says the Lord Jehovah, Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.
So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath came into them; and they lived and stood up upon their feet, an exceedingly great army.
Then He said to me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. Now they say, Our bones are dried up, and our hope is lost; we are cut off completely.
Therefore prophesy, and say to them, Thus says the Lord Jehovah, Now I will open your graves and cause you to come up out of your graves, O My people; and I will bring you into the land of Israel.
And you will know that I am Jehovah, when I open your graves and bring you up out of your graves, O My people.
And I will put My Spirit in you, and you shall live; and I will place you in your own land. Then you will know that I, Jehovah, have spoken and that I have performed it declares Jehovah.
