Ezek. 37:1 The hand of the LORD
 was upon me, and
 carried me out in the spirit of the LORD, and
 set me down in the midst of the valley
[a.] which [was] full of bones,
37:2 And [11.] caused me to pass by them round about: and,
[12.] behold, [there were] very many in the open valley; and,
[13.] lo, [they were] very dry [they had no spiritual life or relationship with God].
 he [the Spirit of the Lord] said unto me,
[a.] Son of man,
[11.] can these bones live? And
 I answered,
[a.] O Lord GOD, thou knowest.
 Prophesy upon these bones, and
[a.] say unto them,
[11.] O ye dry bones,
[aa.] hear the word of the LORD.
37:5 Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold,
 I will cause breath to enter into you, and
37:6 And I will
 lay sinews upon you, and will
 bring up flesh upon you, and
 cover you with skin, and
 put breath in you, and
[a.] ye shall live; and
[b.] ye shall know that
[11.] I [am] the LORD.
 I prophesied as I was commanded [God cannot work His will on earth without the obedience of His servants the prophets to speak His will into the earth realm]: and
 as I prophesied [as the prophet spoke the Spirit of God began to move], there was
[a.] a noise, and behold
[b.] a shaking, and
[11.] the bones came together,
[aa.] bone to his bone.
37:8 And when I beheld, lo,
 the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and
 the skin covered them above [outwardly they appeared to be alive]:
[a.] but [there was] no breath in them [no spiritual life yet].
 Prophesy unto the wind,
 prophesy, son of man, and
[a.] say to the wind,
[11.] Thus saith the Lord GOD;
[aa.] Come from the four winds [the coming lifeblood of Israel shall be in the re-gathering of her people from the four corners of the earth], O breath, and
[ab.] breathe upon these slain,
[111.] that they may live.
 the breath came into them [miracles are the results of obedience to the Word of the Lord], and
 they lived, and
 [they]stood up upon their feet,
[a.] an exceeding great army.
