Ezekiel 37 : 1 - 15

Chapter 37

1The hand of the LORD came upon me and brought me out in the Spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley; and it was full of bones.
2Then He caused me to pass by them all around, and behold, there were very many in the open valley; and indeed they were very dry.
