Then He said to me,
    "Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. 
 They indeed say,
    'Our bones are dry, our hope is lost!'  

 Therefore say to them, 'Thus says the Lord God:  
    "You shall know that I am the Lord,
    when I have brought you up from your graves.  
    I will put My Spirit in you, and you shall live,
    and I will place you in your own land.    
    I, the Lord, have spoken it and performed it."'"
