Abstract

BASDEO-HILL, Amelia Rebecca. Sights and Sounds of Death Valley: A Close Reading of Ezekiel 37:1-14. Old testam. essays [online]. 2018, vol.31, n.3, pp.534-552. ISSN 2312-3621.  http://dx.doi.org/10.17159/2312-3621/2018/v31n3a8.

Owing to the visual and auditory elements found in Ezekiel's vision of the valley of dry bones, this article employs the themes of seeing and hearing as a fitting biblical approach to Ezekiel 37:1-14. A meticulous study of the text demonstrates that Ezekiel intentionally used visual and auditory language to organize the literary structure of the vision, to invite the reader to see, hear, and experience the event along with him, and to intimately encounter the presence of YHWH.

Keywords : seeing; hearing; dry bones; hope; restoration; Ezekiel.
