1 復生的異象耶和華的按在我身上;耶和華藉著他的靈領我出去,把我放在平原上,這平原布滿了骸

2 他帶我在骸骨的四圍經過;我看見平原上面有很多骸骨,都非常枯乾。

3 他問我:“人子啊!這些骸能活過來嗎?”我回答:“耶和華啊!唯有你才知道。”

4 他又對我:“你要向這些骸預言,對它們:‘枯乾的骸啊!你們要耶和華的

5 耶和華對這些骸這樣:看哪!我必使氣息進入你們裡面,你們就活過來了

6 我必使你們生你們包上,又把氣息放入你們裡面,你們必活過來;你們就知道我是耶和華。’”

7 於是我遵命說預言;我正在說預言的時候,就聽見有響聲,骨頭骨頭互相結合起來,格格作響。

8 我觀,見骸骨生了,長了,又有包在上面,只是它們裡面還沒有氣息。

9 他對我:“你要向氣息預言。人子啊!你要預言。你要向氣息:‘耶和華這樣:氣息啊!你要從方(“方”原文作“”)而,吹在這些被殺的人身上,使它們活過。’”

10 於是我遵命說預言,氣息就進入骸骨裡面,骸骨就活過,並且站起,成了一支極軍隊

11 的寓意他對我:“人子啊!這些骸就是以色列全家;他們常:‘我們的骸枯乾了,我們的盼望消失了;我們都滅亡了。’

12 因此,你要預言,對他們:‘耶和華這樣:我的子民哪!我要打開你們的墳墓,把你們從墳墓中領上你們回以色列地去。

13 我的子民哪!我打開你們的墳墓,把你們從墳墓中領上來的時候,你們就知道我是耶和華

14 我要把我的靈放在你們裡面,你們就活過來;我要把你們安頓在你們的土地上,你們就知道耶和華了,就必實行。這是耶和華的宣告。’”

15 兩杖合一的比喻耶和華的又臨到我說:

16 “人子啊!你要拿杖,在上面猶大和那些與他起的以色列人’;又拿另杖,在上面以法蓮杖,就是約瑟和與他起的以色列全家’。

17 你要把這兩根杖連接在起,使它們在你裡成為根。

18 如果你本國的人民問你:‘你不告訴我們這些木杖是甚麼意思嗎?’

19 你就要回答他們:‘耶和華這樣:看哪!我要拿約瑟和與他起的以色列眾支派的杖,就是在以法蓮裡的,跟猶大杖連接在起,使它們在我裡成為根。’

20 上了字的那兩根杖,要在他們眼前握在裡;

21 你要對他們:‘耶和華這樣:看哪!我要把以色列人從他們所到的列國中領出,又從四圍聚集他們,把他們領回故土。

22 我要使他們在那地上,在以色列的上,成為國;必有統治他們眾人;他們不再是兩個國,不再分為兩個邦。

23 他們必不再因自己的偶像和可憎的像,以及一切過犯,而玷污自己;我必拯他們脫離一切背道的罪(“背道的罪”有古卷作“他們在其中犯罪處”);我必潔淨他們,他們就必作我的子民,我必作他們的

24 永遠的約“‘我的僕人大衛必作他們的;他們眾人只有個牧者。他們必遵行我的典章,謹守實行我的律例。

25 他們必在我所賜僕人雅各的地上,就是你們列祖所的地。他們和他們的子孫,以及子孫的子孫,都必永遠在那裡;我的僕人大衛永遠作他們的領袖。

26 我要與他們立平安的約,是一個永遠的約;我必堅立他們,使他們人數增多,又在他們中間設立我的聖所,直到永遠

27 我的居所必在他們當中;我要作他們的,他們要作我的子民。

28 我的所必永遠在他們中間,列國就知道我是耶和華,是我使以色列成聖的。’”
