By the resurrection of dry bones,
Ezekiel 37:1 The hand of Yahweh, being upon me, he carried me forth in the spirit of Yahweh, and set me down in the midst of a plain,and, the same, was full of bones; Ezekiel 37:2 and he caused me to pass near them, round about on every side,and lo! they were very many on the face of the plain, and lo! they were very dry. Ezekiel 37:3 Then said he unto me, Son of man, Can these bones, live? And I said, My Lord, Yahweh, thou, knowest! Ezekiel 37:4 Then said he unto me, Prophesy, over these bones,and thou shalt say unto them, Ye bones so dry! hear ye the word of Yahweh! Ezekiel 37:5 Thus, saith My Lord, Yahweh, Unto these bones,Lo! I am about to bring into youspirit, and ye shall live; Ezekiel 37:6 Yea I will lay upon yousinews, And bring up over youflesh, And cover over youskin, And put in youspirit, And ye shall live, Then shall ye know, that, I, am Yahweh. Ezekiel 37:7 And, when I prophesied, as I was commanded, then was there a noise, as I prophesied, and lo! a rattling, and the bones, came near, each bone unto its own bone. Ezekiel 37:8 And, when I looked, then lo! upon them were sinews, and, flesh, had come up, and there had spread, over them skin, above,but, spirit, was there none, within them. Ezekiel 37:9 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the spirit,Prophesy, Son of man, and thou shalt say unto the spirit, Thus, saith My Lord, YahwehFrom the four winds, come thou, O spirit, And breathe into these slain, That they may live. Ezekiel 37:10 And, when I prophesied, as he commanded me, then came into them the spirit, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceeding, great army.
the dead hope of Israel is revived.
Ezekiel 37:11 Then said he unto me, Son of man, These bones, are, all the house of Israel,Lo! they are saying, Dried, are our bones, and lost, is our hope, We are quite cut off! Ezekiel 37:12 Therefore, prophesy and thou shalt say unto them, Thus, saith My Lord, Yahweh, Lo! I myself, am going to open your graves, And will cause you to come up out of your graves, O my people,And will bring you upon the soil of Israel. Ezekiel 37:13 So shall ye know, that, I, am Yahweh,When I open your graves, And cause you to come up out of your graves, O my people, Ezekiel 37:14 And I will put my spirit within you, and ye shall live, And I will settle you upon your own soil, So shall ye know, that, I, Yahweh, have spoken and have performed, Declareth Yahweh.
By the uniting of two sticks,
Ezekiel 37:15 And the word of Yahweh came, unto me, saying: Ezekiel 37:16 Thou, therefore, Son of man, Take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the sons of Israel his companions, Then take thou another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and all the house of Israel, his companions. Ezekiel 37:17 Then bring them nearthe one to the otherfor thee, into one stick,And they shall become united in thy hand.
is shewed the incorporation of Israel into Judah.
Ezekiel 37:18 And, when the sons of thy people, speak unto thee, saying,Wilt thou not tell us, what, these things, are, to thee? Ezekiel 37:19 speak unto them, Thus, saith My Lord, Yahweh, Lo! I myself, am going to take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel, his companions,And I will place them upon it, even upon the stick of Judah, And will make of them one, stick, And they shall become one, in my hand.
The promises of Christ's Kingdom.
Ezekiel 37:20 And the sticks whereon thou shalt write shall remain in thy hand, before their eyes. Ezekiel 37:21 Therefore speak thou unto them, Thus, saith My Lord, Yahweh, Lo! I myself, am going to take the sons of Israel, from among the nations, whither they have gone,And I will gather them from every side, And will bring them in upon their own soil; Ezekiel 37:22 And will make of them one, nation in the land, among the mountains of Israel, And, one king, shall they all, have, for king,And they shall remain no longer, two nations, Nor shall they be divided into two kingdoms, any more. Ezekiel 37:23 Neither shall they defile themselves any more, With their manufactured gods, or, With their detestable things, or, With any of their transgressions,But I will save them out of all their dwelling-places, wherein they have sinned, And I will cleanse them, And they shall become my, people, And, I, will become their, God. Ezekiel 37:24 And, my servant David, shall be king over them, And, one shepherd, shall they all, have,And, in my regulations, shall they walk, And, my statutes, shall they observe, and do them. Ezekiel 37:25 And they shall dwell upon the land, which I gave to my servantto Jacob, Wherein your fathers, dwelt,Yea they shall dwell thereupon, They, and their children, and their children's children, Unto times age-abiding, And, David my servant, shall be prince unto them, Unto times age-abiding. Ezekiel 37:26 And I will solemnise to them a covenant of prosperity, A covenant age-abiding, shall it be with them,And I will place them, And multiply them, And set my sanctuary in the midst of them, Unto times age-abiding. Ezekiel 37:27 And my habitation shall be over them, And I will become their, God,And, they, shall become my, people. Ezekiel 37:28 So shall the nations know, that, I, Yahweh, am hallowing Israel,When my sanctuary is in the midst of them, Unto times age-abiding.
