All the trees of the field shall know that I, Yahweh, have brought down the high tree, have exalted the low tree, have dried up the green tree, and have made the dry tree to flourish; I, Yahweh, have spoken and have done it.
I will judge you, everyone according to his ways, says Yahweh. Return, and turn yourselves from your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin. I have no pleasure in the death of him who dies, says Yahweh: therefore turn yourselves, and live.
Tell them, As I live, says the Lord Yahweh, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn, turn from your evil ways; for why will you die, house of Israel?
I will seek that which was lost, and will bring back that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick: but the fat and the strong I will destroy; I will feed them in justice.
Yahweh set me down in the valley; and it was full of bones. Behold, there were very many in the open valley; and behold, they were very dry. He said, Son of man, can these bones live? I answered, Lord Yahweh, you know.
