1 Facta est super me manus Domini et eduxit me in spiri tu Domini et posuit me in medio campi, qui erat plenus ossibus,
2 et circumduxit me per ea in gyro: erant autem multa valde super faciem campi siccaque vehementer.
3 Et dixit ad me: "Fili hominis, putasne vivent ossa ista?". Et dixi: "Domine, tu nosti".
4 Et dixit ad me: "Vaticinare super ossa ista et dices eis: Ossa arida, audite verbum Domini.
5 Haec dicit Dominus Deus ossibus his: Ecce ego intromittam in vos spiritum, et vivetis,
6 et dabo super vos nervos et succrescere faciam super vos carnes et superextendam in vobis cutem et dabo vobis spiritum, et vivetis et scietis quia ego Dominus".
7 Et prophetavi, sicut praeceperat mihi. Factus est autem sonitus, prophetante me, et ecce commotio; et accesserunt ossa ad ossa, unumquodque ad iuncturam suam.
8 Et vidi: et ecce super ea nervi et carnes ascenderunt, et extenta est in eis cutis desuper, sed spiritum non habebant.
9 Et dixit ad me: "Vaticinare ad spiritum; vaticinare, fili hominis, et dices ad spiritum: Haec dicit Dominus Deus: A quattuor ventis veni, spiritus, et insuffla super interfectos istos, ut reviviscant".
10 Et prophetavi, sicut praeceperat mihi, et ingressus est in ea spiritus; et vixerunt steteruntque super pedes suos, exercitus grandis nimis valde.
11 Et dixit ad me: "Fili hominis, ossa haec universa domus Israel est. Ipsi dicunt: "Aruerunt ossa nostra, et periit spes nostra, et abscissi sumus".
12 Propterea vaticinare et dices ad eos: Haec dicit Dominus Deus: Ecce ego aperiam tumulos vestros et educam vos de sepulcris vestris, populus meus, et inducam vos in terram Israel;
13 et scietis quia ego Dominus, cum aperuero sepulcra vestra et eduxero vos de tumulis vestris, populus meus.
14 Et dabo spiritum meum in vobis, et vivetis, et collocabo vos super humum vestram, et scietis quia ego Dominus. Locutus sum et facio", ait Dominus Deus.
15 Et factus est sermo Domini ad me dicens:
16 "Et tu, fili hominis, sume tibi lignum unum et scribe super illud: Iudae et filiis Israel sociis eius. Et tolle lignum alterum et scribe super illud: Ioseph, lignum Ephraim, et cunctae domui Israel sociis eius.
17 Et adiunge illa unum ad alterum tibi in lignum unum; et erunt in unionem in manu tua.
18 Cum autem dixerint ad te filii populi tui loquentes: "Nonne indicas nobis, quid in his tibi velis?",
19 loqueris ad eos: Haec dicit Dominus Deus: Ecce ego assumam lignum Ioseph, quod est in manu Ephraim, et tribus Israel, quae iunctae sunt ei, et dabo eas pariter cum ligno Iudae et faciam eas in lignum unum, et erunt unum in manu mea.
20 Erunt autem ligna, super quae scripseris, in manu tua in oculis eorum,
21 et dices ad eos: Haec dicit Dominus Deus: Ecce ego assumam filios Israel de medio nationum, ad quas abierunt, et congregabo eos undique et adducam eos ad humum suam
22 et faciam eos in gentem unam in terra, in montibus Israel; et rex unus erit omnibus imperans, et non erunt ultra duae gentes nec dividentur amplius in duo regna.
23 Neque polluentur ultra in idolis suis et abominationibus suis et in cunctis iniquitatibus suis, et salvos eos faciam de universis aversionibus suis, quibus peccaverunt, et mundabo eos, et erunt mihi populus, et ego ero eis Deus.
24 Et servus meus David rex super eos, et pastor unus erit omnium eorum; in iudiciis meis ambulabunt et mandata mea custodient et facient ea.
25 Et habitabunt super terram, quam dedi servo meo Iacob, in qua habitaverunt patres vestri; et habitabunt super eam, ipsi et filii eorum et filii filiorum eorum usque in sempiternum, et David servus meus princeps eorum in perpetuum.
26 Et percutiam illis foedus pacis, pactum sempiternum erit eis, et fundabo eos et multiplicabo; et dabo sanctuarium meum in medio eorum in perpetuum,
27 et erit habitaculum meum in eis, et ero eis Deus, et ipsi erunt mihi populus;
28 et scient gentes quia ego Dominus sanctificator Israel, cum fuerit sanctuarium meum in medio eorum in perpetuum".
King James Version
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 which was full of bones,
2 And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.
3 And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest.
4 Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.
5 Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:
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 ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
7 So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.
8 And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.
9 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.
10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.
11 ¶ Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.
12 Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.
13 And ye shall know that I am the LORD, 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 ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith the LORD.
15 ¶ The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,
16 Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions:
17 And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand.
18 ¶ And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee, saying, Wilt thou not shew us what thou meanest by these?
19 Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand.
20 ¶ And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand before their eyes.
21 And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:
22 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all:
23 Neither shall they defile themselves 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: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.
24 And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe 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 therein, even they, and their children, and their children's children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince for ever.
26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.
27 My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
28 And the heathen shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.
