Chapter 37

Translation and Transliteration of 

1The hand of Hashem came upon me. He took me out by the spirit of Hashem and set me down in the valley. It was full of bones.

2He led me all around them; there were very many of them spread over the valley, and they were very dry.

3He said to me, “O mortal, can these bones live again?” I replied, “O Hashem, only You know.”

 37:3 ‘O mortal, can these bones live again?’

The Masada Valley.

This chapter contains Yechezkel’s well-known vision of the valley in which dry bones come to life. There could be no greater metaphor for the restoration of the Jewish people to their land. Yisrael and Yehuda have been destroyed, the people scattered to the four corners of the earth. Just as no one could imagine that dead bones could live again, the exiles cannot imagine that they will survive as a nation, let alone ever return to their homeland. Yet, when God asks Yechezkel “can these bones live?” he doesn’t express doubt or hopelessness. He answers that anything can happen if it is God’s will. And so the dry bones arise from the dead. In a similarly miraculous fashion, in the years immediately following the Holocaust, the People of Israel cameback to life in the Land of Israel. In fact, these verses are read on Israeli radio every year on Holocaust Remembrance Day.

4And He said to me, “Prophesy over these bones and say to them: O dry bones, hear the word of Hashem!

vai-YO-mer e-LAI, hi-NA-ve al ha-a-TZA-mot ha-E-leh, va-a-mar-TA a-LE-hem, ha-a-TZA-mot ha-ye-VE-shot, shim-U d'-var a-do-NAI

5Thus said Hashem to these bones: I will cause breath to enter you and you shall live again.

6I will lay sinews upon you, and cover you with flesh, and form skin over you. And I will put breath into you, and you shall live again. And you shall know that I am Hashem!”

7I prophesied as I had been commanded. And while I was prophesying, suddenly there was a sound of rattling, and the bones came together, bone to matching bone.

8I looked, and there were sinews on them, and flesh had grown, and skin had formed over them; but there was no breath in them.

9Then He said to me, “Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, O mortal! Say to the breath: Thus said Hashem: Come, O breath, from the four winds, and breathe into these slain, that they may live again.”

10I prophesied as He commanded me. The breath entered them, and they came to life and stood up on their feet, a vast multitude.

11And He said to me, “O mortal, these bones are the whole House of Yisrael. They say, ‘Our bones are dried up, our hope is gone; we are doomed.'

12Prophesy, therefore, and say to them: Thus said Hashem: I am going to open your graves and lift you out of the graves, O My people, and bring you to the land of Yisrael.

37:19   They shall be joined in My hand

Members of the Bnei Menashe tribe arrive in Israel

Yechezkel again prophesies about the ingathering of the exiles. He stresses that this a promise for all of Israel; not only for the members of the kingdom of Yehuda, but also for the tribes from kingdom of Yisrael whose people have been considered lost since the Assyrian conquest of the northern kingdom. During the final redemption, all twelve tribes of Israel will return to the Promised Land, and they will re-unite to form one nation unified under one leader. Today, Jews are returning to Eretz Yisrael from all over the world, and are joining together to reestablish the Nation of Israel in the Land of Israel.
