A-Z: Common sayings from the Bible: Dry bones


Refers to the outline or skeleton of an idea which must be 'fleshed out'.


Ezekiel's vision is of God's power to resurrect the dead bones and give them life: in the same way, Ezekiel is to prophesy to God's despairing people that they will live in their own land, bringing life to their dead hopes.
