    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 37:12

    I will open your graves - Here is a pointed allusion to the general resurrection; a doctrine properly credited and understood by the Jews, and to which our Lord refers, John 5:25, John 5:28, John 5:29 : "The hour is coming when they that are in their graves shall hear his voice, and come forth."

    And cause you to come up out of your graves - I am determined that ye shall be restored; so that were ye even in your graves, as mankind at the general resurrection, yet my all-powerful voice shall call you forth.

    Wesley's Notes on Ezekiel 37:12
