Ezekiel 37:1-10

The hand of the Lord came upon me, and he brought me out by the spirit of the Lord and set me down in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. He led me all around them; there were very many lying in the valley, and they were very dry. He said to me, “Mortal, can these bones live?” I answered, “O Lord God, you know.” Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them: O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord. Thus says the Lord God to these bones: I will cause breath to enter you, and you shall live. I will lay sinews on you, and will cause flesh to come upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and you shall live; and you shall know that I am the Lord.” So I prophesied as I had been commanded; and as I prophesied, suddenly there was a noise, a rattling, and the bones came together, bone to its bone. I looked, and there were sinews on them, and flesh had come upon them, and skin had covered them; but there was no breath in them. Then he said to me, “Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, mortal, and say to the breath: Thus says the Lord God: Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.” I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood on their feet, a vast multitude. 

 

La mano de Yahveh fue sobre mí y, por su espíritu, Yahveh me sacó y me puso en medio de la vega, la cual estaba llena de huesos. Me hizo pasar por entre ellos en todas las direcciones. Los huesos eran muy numerosos por el suelo de la vega, y estaban completamente secos. Me dijo: “Hijo de hombre, ¿podrán vivir estos huesos?” Yo dije: “Señor Yahveh, tú lo sabes.” Entonces me dijo: “Profetiza sobre estos huesos. Les dirás: Huesos secos, escuchad la palabra de Yahveh. Así dice el Señor Yahveh a estos huesos: He aquí que yo voy a hacer entrar el espíritu en vosotros, y viviréis. Os cubriré de nervios, haré crecer sobre vosotros la carne, os cubriré de piel, os infundiré espíritu y viviréis; y sabréis que yo soy Yahveh.” Yo profeticé como se me había ordenado, y mientras yo profetizaba se produjo un ruido. Hubo un estremecimiento, y los huesos se juntaron unos con otros. Miré y vi que estaban recubiertos de nervios, la carne salía y la piel se extendía por encima, pero no había espíritu en ellos. El me dijo: “Profetiza al espíritu, profetiza, hijo de hombre. Dirás al espíritu: Así dice el Señor Yahveh: Ven, espíritu, de los cuatro vientos, y sopla sobre estos muertos para que vivan.” Yo profeticé como se me había ordenado, y el espíritu entró en ellos; revivieron y se incorporaron sobre sus pies: era un enorme, inmenso ejército.

 

여호와께서 권능으로 내게 임하시고 그 신으로 나를 데리고 가서 골짜기 가운데 두셨는데 거기 뼈가 가득하더라 나를 그 뼈 사방으로 지나게 하시기로 본즉 그 골짜기 지면에 뼈가 심히 많고 아주 말랐더라 그가 내게 이르시되 인자야 이 뼈들이 능히 살겠느냐 하시기로 내가 대답하되 주 여호와여 주께서 아시나이다 또 내게 이르시되 너는 이 모든 뼈에게 대언하여 이르기를 너희 마른 뼈들아 여호와의 말씀을 들을지어다 주 여호와께서 이 뼈들에게 말씀하시기를 내가 생기로 너희에게 들어가게 하리니 너희가 살리라 너희 위에 힘줄을 두고 살을 입히고 가죽으로 덮고 너희 속에 생기를 두리니 너희가 살리라 또 나를 여호와인 줄 알리라 하셨다 하라 이에 내가 명을 좇아 대언하니 대언할 때에 소리가 나고 움직이더니 이 뼈, 저 뼈가 들어 맞아서 뼈들이 서로 연락하더라 내가 또 보니 그 뼈에 힘줄이 생기고 살이 오르며 그 위에 가죽이 덮이나 그 속에 생기는 없더라 또 내게 이르시되 인자야 너는 생기를 향하여 대언하라 생기에게 대언하여 이르기를 주 여호와의 말씀에 생기야 사방에서부터 와서 이 사망을 당한 자에게 불어서 살게 하라 하셨다 하라 이에 내가 그 명대로 대언하였더니 생기가 그들에게 들어가매 그들이 곧 살아 일어나서 서는데 극히 큰 군대더라

 

Life-giving God,

     we need you every hour.

We are sick with worry and strife.

We want answers to questions we don’t know how to ask.

We need you to breathe into us new life.

Learning to live anew is challenging and heartbreaking.

We must let go of what was and learn to live in this new reality.

It’s painful, Lord, 

     but you send your Spirit to knit us together

     and teach us to breathe again.

Remain with us as we are reborn more fully into your image.

In Jesus’ name we pray,

Amen.
