1 The hand of Jehovah was upon me, and brought· me ·out in the spirit of Jehovah, and rested me in the midst of the vale and it was full of bones,

2 and caused me to pass by them all around; and, behold, there were very many on the face of the vale; and behold, they were very dry.

3 And He said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I said, O Lord Jehovih*, Thou knowest.

4 And He said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of Jehovah.

5 Thus says the Lord Jehovih unto these bones; Behold, I will cause spirit to come into you, and you shall live;

6 and I will put sinews on you, and will bring·​·up flesh upon you, and cover over you with skin, and put spirit in you, and you shall live; and you shall know that I am Jehovah.

7 And I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a voice, and behold a quaking, and the bones came·​·near, a bone to its bone.

8 And I saw, and behold, sinews and flesh came·​·up on them, and skin covered over them above; but there was no spirit in them.

9 And He said unto me, Prophesy to the spirit, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus says the Lord Jehovih: Come from the four winds, O spirit*, and breathe into these that were killed, and they will live.

10 And I prophesied as He commanded me, and the spirit came into them, and they lived, and stood on their feet, a very, very great host.

11 And He said to me, Son of man, these bones are all the house of Israel; behold, they say, Our bones are dried·​·up, and our hope is·​·lost; for ourselves we are severed.

12 Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus says the Lord Jehovih: Behold, O My people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come·​·up out·​·of your graves, and bring you onto the ground of Israel.

13 And you shall know that I am Jehovah, when I have opened your graves, O My people, and brought· you ·up out·​·of your graves,

14 and shall put My spirit in you, and you shall live, and I shall place you on your own ground; and you shall know that I, Jehovah, have spoken it, and done it, says Jehovah.

15 And the word of Jehovah was unto me, saying,

16 And thou, son of man, take for thyself one piece of wood, and write on it, For Judah, and for the sons of Israel his friends; then take one piece of wood, and write on it, For Joseph, the piece of wood of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his friends:

17 and bring· them ·near, one to the other* one to thee, into one piece of wood, and they shall be one in thy hand.

18 And when the sons of thy people shall say unto thee, saying, Wilt thou not tell us what these mean to thee?

19 speak to them, Thus says the Lord Jehovih: Behold, I will take the wood of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his friends, and will put them upon him, with the wood of Judah, and make them one piece of wood, and they shall be one in My hand.

20 And the pieces of wood upon which thou writest shall be in thy hand before their eyes.

21 And speak to them, Thus says the Lord Jehovih: Behold, I will take the sons of Israel from among the nations, whither they be gone, and will bring· them ·together all around, and bring them onto their own ground;

22 and I will make them into one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be for a king to them all; and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be halved any·​·more into two kingdoms any·​·more.

23 Neither shall they make· themselves ·unclean any·​·more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions, but I will save them out·​·of all their dwellingplaces, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them; and they shall be to Me for a people, and I will be to them for a God.

24 And My servant David shall be king over them, and there shall be one shepherd for them all; and they shall walk in My judgments, and keep My statutes, and do them.

25 And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob My servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell in it, even they, and their sons, and their sons’ sons to eternity; and My servant David shall be chief to them to eternity.

26 And I will cut a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an eternal covenant with them; and I will give them and multiply them, and will put My sanctuary in their midst to eternity.

27 And My habitation shall be over them; and I will be to them for a God and they shall be to Me for a people.

28 And the nations shall know that I, Jehovah, shall sanctify Israel, when My sanctuary is in their midst to eternity.
