Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
but He will deliver them from them all.
The Lord shall guard all their bones;
not one of them shall be broken.
Brethren, let us not receive this carnally.
Bones are the firm supports of the faithful.
For as in flesh our bones give firmness, so in the heart of a Christian it is faith that gives firmness.
The patience then which is in faith, is as the bones of the inner man:
this is that which cannot be broken…
[So He speaks of those] bones which we call the firm supports of faith,
that is, patience and endurance in all tribulations.
These are the bones which are not broken.
