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.
2 He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry.
2 And he led me around among them, and behold, there were very many on the surface of the valley, and behold, they were very dry.
2 He led me around and among them - a lot of bones! There were bones all over the plain - dry bones, bleached by the sun.
2 Then He caused me to pass by them all around, and behold, there were very many in the open valley; and indeed they were very dry.
2 He led me all around among the bones that covered the valley floor. They were scattered everywhere across the ground and were completely dried out.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Ezekiel 37:2
Commentary on Ezekiel 37:1-14
(Read Ezekiel 37:1-14)
No created power could restore human bones to life. God alone could cause them to live. Skin and flesh covered them, and the wind was then told to blow upon these bodies; and they were restored to life. The wind was an emblem of the Spirit of God, and represented his quickening powers. The vision was to encourage the desponding Jews; to predict both their restoration after the captivity, and also their recovery from their present and long-continued dispersion. It was also a clear intimation of the resurrection of the dead; and it represents the power and grace of God, in the conversion of the most hopeless sinners to himself. Let us look to Him who will at last open our graves, and bring us forth to judgment, that He may now deliver us from sin, and put his Spirit within us, and keep us by his power, through faith, unto salvation.
