: : Anyone have info about the origin of this similie?
: I'd start with Ezekiel 37:1 thru 37:6, in the Bible of your choice.
Bible Gateway (advanced search) is a good place to look up scripture. http://bible.gospelcom.net/
"The valley...was full of bones...and, lo, they were very dry." Ezekiel 37:1-2; and "O ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord." Ezekiel 37:4.
