    In his vision, Ezekiel sees himself standing in the valley full of dry human bones. He asks if these bones could live again, and the lord commands him to prophecy over the bones. Before him the bones connect into human figures, then the bones become covered with tendon tissues, flesh and skin. Then God reveals the bones to the prophet as the People of Israel in exile and commands the Prophet to carry another prophecy in order to revitalize these human figures, to resurrect them and to bring them to the Land of Israel.
