Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 37:3

_ _ can these bones live? ... thou knowest — implying that, humanly speaking, they could not; but faith leaves the question of possibility to rest with God, with whom nothing is impossible (Deuteronomy 32:39). An image of Christian faith which believes in the coming general resurrection of the dead, in spite of all appearances against it, because God has said it (John 5:21; Romans 4:17; 2 Corinthians 1:9).

Matthew Henry's Commentary
