The Valley of Dry Bones


Ezekiel 37:1- 4:

1 The hand of the Lord was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones,

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.

3 And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord God, thou knowest.

4 Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.

Your Say

Loved hearing this verse today.

This song is now forever associated with it:


Mark Heard, Dry Bones Dance. Enjoy.

No, not dance. Puzzle and ponder and wonder.
What caused such fantastic words to be written? What is meant by them, other than a plea for BELIEF! and FAITH!? Was it a psychedelic dream or the product of a tumor? Given the time of the writing what kernel of an idea could have grown into scenes like those?

Illusion of immortality?
What ever happened to the practice of "indexing" mere mentions of a mere mortals name, found scratched into the latest Golden Calf descendant's poop?
