Ezekiel 37:1-14 is known as the “Valley Of Dry Bones”. In this passage, God calls Ezekiel to prophesy about the dry bones in the field. The prophet Ezekiel received a vision from the Lord in which he saw a valley full of dry bones. God asked Ezekiel if the bones could live again and Ezekiel replied that only God could know. God then told Ezekiel to prophesy over the bones and the bones came together, formed skeletons, and then were clothed with flesh and skin. God then breathed spirit into the bones and they lived.

Ezekiel 37:1,2 – The hand of the LORD was upon me, and he brought me out in the Spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of a valley that was full of bones.

And made me pass around them; and, behold, they were very many upon the face of the valley, and, behold, they were very dry.

 The bones that Ezekiel saw represented the nation of Israel, which was spiritually dry and dead. Ezekiel’s vision represents the restoration of the people of Israel. God promises that He will bring the Israelites back to their land and that He will restore their nation. God is able to do the impossible and bring the dead to life. This vision shows the hope that God gives to his people and their faithfulness to his promise.

The people of Israel were going through a very difficult time. They had been exiled from their land and were living among heathen nations. They were suffering and appeared to be spiritually dead. But God had not abandoned them. He had a plan to restore his nation and to bring them back to their land.

God then asks Ezekiel to prophesy about the bones and say that they would live again. 

Ezekiel 37:4-6 – Then he said to me, Prophesy about these bones, and say to them, Dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.

Thus says the Lord GOD to these bones: Behold, I will cause the spirit to enter you, and you shall live.

And I will put sinews upon you, and I will make flesh grow upon you, and I will spread skin upon you, and I will put a spirit in you, and ye shall live, and ye shall know that I am the Lord.
