No references listed for this verse.









(8) No breath in them.--The restoration of the dry bones to life is described as taking place in two stages, with evident reference to the record of the creation of man in Genesis 2:7. In the first, they are restored to perfect form, but yet without life; in the second, they receive breath and become "living creatures," as in Genesis 1:20-21; Genesis 1:24; Genesis 2:7, in all which the same expression is used.
