And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest.
 Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.
 Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:
 Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.
 And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,
 And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith the LORD.

Only the intervention of the Lamb of God entering the Gates of Death can reverse the movement into the depths of the abyss.
 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:
 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.
 Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.
 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!
 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
