1 And the hand of the Lord came upon me, and the Lord brought me forth by the Spirit, and set me in the midst of the plain, and it was full of human bones. 2 And he led me round about them every way: and, behold, [there were] very many on the face of the plain, very dry. 3 And he said to me, Son of man, will these bones live? and I said, O Lord God, thou knowest this. 4 And he said to me, Prophesy upon these bones, and thou shalt say to them, Ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord. 5 Thus saith the Lord to these bones; Behold, I [will] bring upon you the breath of life: 6 and I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and will spread skin upon you, and will put my Spirit into you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the Lord. 7 So I prophesied as [the Lord] commanded me: and it came to pass while I was prophesying, that, behold, [there was] a shaking, and the bones approached each one to his joint. 8 And I looked, and behold, sinews and flesh grew upon them, and skin came upon them above: but there was not breath in them. 9 And he said to me, Prophesy to the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord; Come from the four winds, and breathe upon these dead [men], and let them live. 10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath entered into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, a very great congregation. 11 And the Lord spoke to me, saying, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: and they say, Our bones are become dry, our hope has perished, we are quite spent. 12 therefore prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord; Behold, I [will] open your tombs, and will bring you up out of your tombs, and will bring you into the land of Israel. 13 And ye shall know that I am the Lord, when I have opened your graves, that I may bring up my people from [their] graves. 14 And I will put my Spirit within you, and ye shall live, and I will place you upon your own land: and ye shall know that I [am] the Lord; I have spoken, and will do [it], saith the Lord. 15 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 16 Son of man, take for thyself a rod, and write upon it, Juda, and the children of Israel his adherents; and thou shalt take for thyself another rod, and thou shalt inscribe it for Joseph, the rod of Ephraim, and all the children of Israel that belong to him. 17 And thou shalt join them together for thyself, so as that they should bind themselves into one stick; and they shall be in thine hand. 18 And it shall come to pass, when the children of thy people shall say to thee, Wilt thou not tell us what thou meanest by these things? 19 Then shalt thou say to them, Thus saith the Lord; behold, I will take the tribe of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel that belong to him, and I will add them to the tribe of Juda, and they shall become one rod in the hand of Juda. 20 And the rods on which thou didst write shall be in thine hand in their presence. 21 And thou shalt say to them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I [will] take the whole house of Israel out of the midst of the nations, among whom they have gone, and I will gather them from all that are round about them, and I will bring them into the land of Israel. 22 And I will make them a nation in my land, even on the mountains of Israel; and they shall have one prince: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided any more at all into two kingdoms: 23 that they may no more defile themselves with their idols; and I will deliver them from all their transgressions whereby they have sinned, and will cleanse them; and they shall be to me a people, and I the Lord will be to them a God. 24 And my servant David [shall be] a prince in the midst of them: there shall be one shepherd of [them] all; for they shall walk in mine ordinances, and keep my judgments, and do them. 25 And they shall dwell in their land, which I have given to my servant Jacob, where their fathers dwelt; and they shall dwell upon it: and David my servant [shall be their] prince forever. 26 And I will make with them a covenant of peace; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them; and I will establish my sanctuary in the midst of them for ever. 27 And my tabernacle shall be among them; and I will be to them a God, and they shall be my people. 28 And the nations shall know that I am the Lord that sanctifies them, when my sanctuary is in the midst of them for ever. ΚΑΙ ἐγένετο ἐπ’ ἐμὲ χεὶρ Κυρίου, καὶ ἐξήγαγέ με ἐν πνεύματι Κύριος καὶ ἔθηκέ με ἐν μέσῳ τοῦ πεδίου, καὶ τοῦτο ἦν μεστὸν ὀστέων ἀνθρωπίνων· 2 καὶ περιήγαγέ με ἐπ’ αὐτὰ κυκλόθεν κύκλῳ, καὶ ἰδοὺ πολλὰ σφόδρα ἐπὶ προσώπου τοῦ πεδίου, ξηρὰ σφόδρα. 3 καὶ εἶπε πρός με· υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου, εἰ ζήσεται τὰ ὀστέα ταῦτα; καὶ εἶπα· Κύριε Κύριε, σὺ ἐπίστῃ ταῦτα. 4 καὶ εἶπε πρός με· προφήτευσον ἐπὶ τὰ ὀστᾶ ταῦτα καὶ ἐρεῖς αὐτοῖς· τὰ ὀστᾶ τὰ ξηρά, ἀκούσατε λόγον Κυρίου. 5 τάδε λέγει Κύριος τοῖς ὀστέοις τούτοις· ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ φέρω ἐφ’ ὑμᾶς πνεῦμα ζωῆς 6 καὶ δώσω ἐφ’ ὑμᾶς νεῦρα καὶ ἀνάξω ἐφ’ ὑμᾶς σάρκας, καὶ ἐκτενῶ ἐφ’ ὑμᾶς δέρμα καὶ δώσω πνεῦμά μου εἰς ὑμᾶς, καὶ ζήσεσθε· καὶ γνώσεσθε ὅτι ἐγώ εἰμι Κύριος. 7 καὶ ἐπροφήτευσα καθὼς ἐνετείλατό μοι. καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ ἐμὲ προφητεῦσαι καὶ ἰδοὺ σεισμός, καὶ προσήγαγε τὰ ὀστᾶ ἑκάτερον πρὸς τὴν ἁρμονίαν αὐτοῦ. 8 καὶ εἶδον καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐπ’ αὐτὰ νεῦρα καὶ σάρκες ἐφύοντο, καὶ ἀνέβαινεν ἐπ’ αὐτὰ δέρμα ἐπάνω, καὶ πνεῦμα οὐκ ἦν ἐπ’ αὐτοῖς. 9 καὶ εἶπε πρός με· προφήτευσον ἐπὶ τὸ πνεῦμα, προφήτευσον, υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου, καὶ εἰπὸν τῷ πνεύματι· τάδε λέγει Κύριος· ἐκ τῶν τεσσάρων πνευμάτων ἐλθὲ καὶ ἐμφύσησον εἰς τοὺς νεκροὺς τούτους, καὶ ζησάτωσαν. 10 καὶ ἐπροφήτευσα καθότι ἐνετείλατό μοι· καὶ εἰσῆλθεν εἰς αὐτοὺς τὸ πνεῦμα, καὶ ἔζησαν καὶ ἔστησαν ἐπὶ τῶν ποδῶν αὐτῶν, συναγωγὴ πολλὴ σφόδρα. 11 καὶ ἐλάλησε Κύριος πρός με λέγων· υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου, τὰ ὀστᾶ ταῦτα πᾶς οἶκος ᾿Ισραήλ ἐστι, καὶ αὐτοὶ λέγουσι· ξηρὰ γέγονε τὰ ὀστᾶ ἡμῶν, ἀπόλωλεν ἡ ἐλπὶς ἡμῶν, διαπεφωνήκαμεν. 12 διὰ τοῦτο προφήτευσον καὶ εἰπὸν πρὸς αὐτούς· τάδε λέγει Κύριος· ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἀνοίγω τὰ μνήματα ὑμῶν καὶ ἀνάξω ὑμᾶς ἐκ τῶν μνημάτων ὑμῶν καὶ εἰσάξω ὑμᾶς εἰς τὴν γῆν τοῦ ᾿Ισραήλ, 13 καὶ γνώσεσθε ὅτι ἐγώ εἰμι Κύριος ἐν τῷ ἀνοῖξαί με τοὺς τάφους ὑμῶν τοῦ ἀναγαγεῖν με ἐκ τῶν τάφων τὸν λαόν μου. 14 καὶ δώσω πνεῦμά μου εἰς ὑμᾶς, καὶ ζήσεσθε, καὶ θήσομαι ὑμᾶς ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν ὑμῶν, καὶ γνώσεσθε ὅτι ἐγὼ Κύριος· λελάληκα καὶ ποιήσω, λέγει Κύριος. 15 Καὶ ἐγένετο λόγος Κυρίου πρός με λέγων· 16 υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου, λαβὲ σεαυτῷ ῥάβδον καὶ γράψον ἐπ’ αὐτὴν τὸν ᾿Ιούδαν καὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς ᾿Ισραὴλ τοὺς προσκειμένους ἐπ’ αὐτόν· καὶ ράβδον δευτέραν λήψῃ σεαυτῷ καὶ γράψεις αὐτὴν τῷ ᾿Ιωσήφ, ράβδον ᾿Εφραὶμ καὶ πάντας τοὺς υἰοὺς ᾿Ισραὴλ τοὺς προστεθέντας πρὸς αὐτόν. 17 καὶ συνάψεις αὐτὰς πρὸς ἀλλήλας σαυτῷ εἰς ράβδον μίαν τοῦ δῆσαι αὐτάς, καὶ ἔσονται ἐν τῇ χειρί σου. 18 καὶ ἔσται ὅταν λέγωσι πρὸς σὲ οἱ υἱοὶ τοῦ λαοῦ σου· οὐκ ἀναγγέλλεις ἡμῖν τί ἐστι ταῦτά σοι; 19 καὶ ἐρεῖς πρὸς αὐτούς· τάδε λέγει Κύριος· ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ λήψομαι τὴν φυλὴν ᾿Ιωσήφ, τὴν διὰ χειρὸς ᾿Εφραίμ, καὶ τὰς φυλὰς ᾿Ισραὴλ τὰς προσκειμένας πρὸς αὐτὸν καὶ δώσω αὐτοὺς ἐπὶ τὴν φυλὴν ᾿Ιούδα, καὶ ἔσονται εἰς ράβδον μίαν τῇ χειρὶ ᾿Ιούδα. 20 καὶ ἔσονται αἱ ράβδοι, ἐφ’ αἷς σὺ ἔγραψας ἐπ’ αὐταῖς, ἐν τῇ χειρί σου ἐνώπιον αὐτῶν, 21 καὶ ἐρεῖς αὐτοῖς· τάδε λέγει Κύριος Κύριος· ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ λαμβάνω πάντα οἶκον ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐκ μέσου τῶν ἐθνῶν, οὗ εἰσήλθοσαν ἐκεῖ, καὶ συνάξω αὐτοὺς ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν περικύκλῳ αὐτῶν καὶ εἰσάξω αὐτοὺς εἰς τὴν γῆν τοῦ ᾿Ισραήλ· 22 καὶ δώσω αὐτοὺς εἰς ἔθνος ἓν ἐν τῇ γῇ μου καὶ ἐν τοῖς ὄρεσιν ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ ἄρχων εἷς ἔσται αὐτῶν, καὶ οὐκ ἔσονται ἔτι εἰς δύο ἔθνη, οὐδὲ μὴ διαιρεθῶσιν οὐκέτι εἰς δύο βασιλείας, 23 ἵνα μὴ μιαίνωνται ἔτι ἐν τοῖς εἰδώλοις αὐτῶν. καὶ ρύσομαι αὐτοὺς ἀπὸ πασῶν τῶν ἀνομιῶν αὐτῶν, ὧν ἡμάρτοσαν ἐν αὐταῖς, καὶ καθαριῶ αὐτούς, καὶ ἔσονταί μοι εἰς λαόν, καὶ ἐγὼ Κύριος ἔσομαι αὐτοῖς εἰς Θεόν. 24 καὶ ὁ δοῦλός μου Δαυὶδ ἄρχων ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῶν ἔσται ποιμὴν εἷς πάντων· ὅτι ἐν τοῖς προστάγμασί μου πορεύσονται καὶ τὰ κρίματά μου φυλάξονται καὶ ποιήσουσιν αὐτά. 25 καὶ κατοικήσουσιν ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς αὐτῶν, ἣν ἐγὼ δέδωκα τῷ δούλῳ μου ᾿Ιακώβ, οὗ κατῴκησαν ἐκεῖ οἱ πατέρες αὐτῶν· καὶ κατοικήσουσιν ἐπ’ αὐτῆς αὐτοί, καὶ Δαυὶδ ὁ δοῦλός μου ἄρχων αὐτῶν ἔσται εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα. 26 καὶ διαθήσομαι αὐτοῖς διαθήκην εἰρήνης, διαθήκη αἰωνία ἔσται μετ’ αὐτῶν· καὶ θήσω τὰ ἅγιά μου ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῶν εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα. 27 καὶ ἔσται ἡ κατασκήνωσίς μου ἐν αὐτοῖς, καὶ ἔσομαι αὐτοῖς Θεός, καὶ αὐτοί μου ἔσονται λαός. 28 καὶ γνώσονται τὰ ἔθνη ὅτι ἐγώ εἰμι Κύριος ὁ ἁγιάζων αὐτοὺς ἐν τῷ εἶναι τὰ ἅγιά μου ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῶν εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα.
