and caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.
And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bonds live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest.
Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bonds, and say unto them, O ye dry bonds, hear the word of the LORD.
Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bonds; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:
and I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bonds came together, bond to his bond:
The Collateralized Mortage Obligation bond connected to the real estate mortgage investment conduit bond.And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no confidence in them.
The real estate mortgage investment conduit bond connected to the interest-only security bond.
The interest only security bond connected to the principal-only security bond.
The principal-only security bond connected to the pass-through mortgage-backed securities with senior/subordinated structures bond.
Oh hear the word of the Lord!
Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O Hot Air, and blow hard upon these slain toxic assets, that they may live.
So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the confidence came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great investment.
Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bonds are the whole Financial System: behold, the bankers say, Our bonds are dried, and our hope is lost: our derivatives are cut off from one another.
Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my toxic assets, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves to reinflate your bubbles, and return you into the land of high finance.
And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my collateralized securities, 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 bad bank: then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith the Secretary of the Treasury.
