EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)
out of your graves—out of your politically dead state, primarily in Babylon, finally hereafter in all lands (compare Eze 6:8; Ho 13:14). The Jews regarded the lands of their captivity and dispersion as their "graves"; their restoration was to be as "life from the dead" (Ro 11:15). Before, the bones were in the open plain (Eze 37:1, 2); now, in the graves, that is, some of the Jews were in the graves of actual captivity, others at large but dispersed. Both alike were nationally dead.The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,
EXEGETICAL (ORIGINAL LANGUAGES)15–28. Prophecy of the reunion of the restored Israel into one kingdom, ruled by one king, even David
(1) Ezekiel 37:15-23. Symbol of the union of Judah and Israel into one kingdom, with its explanation.
(2) Ezekiel 37:24-25. There shall be one king over the new nation, even David.
(3) Ezekiel 37:26-28. Jehovah’s covenant with the people shall be everlasting, and his presence will sanctify them.Verses 15-28. - The "word" embodied in this section was probably communicated to the prophet at the close of the preceding vision. Its connection with this is apparent, treating as it does of the union of the then severed branches of the house of Israel, and of the subsequent prosperity which should attend united Israel under the rule of the Messianic King of the future. That this oracle, like the former, had only a temporary and partial accomplishment in the return from captivity is so obvious as to stand in no need of demonstration. Its true fulfillment must be sought in the future ingathering of Israel to the Christian Church.
