37:1 The hand of Yahweh was on me, and he brought me out in the Spirit of Yahweh, and set me down in the midst of the valley; and it was full of bones.
37:2 And he caused me to pass by them round about: and, look, there were very many in the open valley; and, look, they were very dry.
37:3 And he said to me, Son of Man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Sovereign Yahweh, you know.
37:4 Again he said to me, Prophesy over these bones, and say to them, O you+ dry bones, hear the word of Yahweh.
37:5 Thus says the Sovereign Yahweh to these bones: Look, I will cause breath to enter into you+, and you+ will live.
37:6 And I will lay sinews on you+, and will bring up flesh on you+, and cover you+ with skin, and put breath in you+, and you+ will live; and you+ will know that I am Yahweh.
37:7 So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and, look, an earthquake; and the bones came together, bone to its bone.
37:8 And I looked, and saw that there were sinews on them, and flesh came up, and skin covered them above; but there was no breath in them.
37:9 Then he said to me, Prophesy to the wind, prophesy, Son of Man, and say to the wind, Thus says the Sovereign Yahweh: Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.
37:10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up on their feet, an exceedingly great army.
37:11 Then he said to me, Son of Man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: look, they say, Our bones are dried up, and our hope is lost; we are clean cut off.
37:12 Therefore prophesy, and say to them, Thus says the Sovereign Yahweh: Look, 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.
37:13 And you+ will know that I am Yahweh, when I have opened your+ graves, and caused you+ to come up out of your+ graves, O my people.
37:14 And I will put my Spirit in you+, and you+ will live, and I will place you+ in your+ own land: and you+ will know that I, Yahweh, have spoken it and performed it, says Yahweh.
37:15 The word of Yahweh came again to me, saying,
37:16 And you, Son of Man, take for yourself one stick, and write on it, For Judah, and for the sons of Israel his partners: then take another stick, and write on it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and [for] all the house of Israel his partners:
37:17 and join them for you one to another into one stick, that they may become one in your hand.
37:18 And when the sons of your people will speak to you, saying, Will you not show us what you mean by these?
37:19 Say to them, Thus says the Sovereign Yahweh: Look, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his partners; and I will put them with it, [even] with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they will be one in my hand.
37:20 And the sticks on which you write will be in your hand before their eyes.
37:21 And say to them, Thus says the Sovereign Yahweh: Look, I will take the sons of Israel from among the nations, where they have gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:
37:22 and I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel; and one king will be king to them all; and no more will they be two nations, neither will they be divided into two kingdoms anymore at all;
37:23 neither will they defile themselves anymore with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions; but I will save them out of all their backslidings, in which they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so they will be my people, and I will be their God.
37:24 And my slave David will be king over them; and all of them will have one shepherd: they will also walk in my ordinances, and observe my statutes, and do them.
37:25 And they will dwell in the land that I have given to Jacob my slave, in which your+ fathers dwelt; and they will dwell in it, they, and their sons, and the sons of their sons, forever: and David my slave will be their prince forever.
37:26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it will be an everlasting covenant with them; and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them forevermore.
37:27 My tabernacle also will be with them; and I will be their God, and they will be my people.
37:28 And the nations will know that I am Yahweh who sanctifies Israel, when my sanctuary will be in the midst of them forevermore.
