Psalm 141: The Messiah's Bones Prophecies

"For we are members of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones"

The English-language word "bone" originated from an Anglo-Saxon word, bon, that meant the parts of the internal structure of vertebrates (living creatures that have skeletons).

"Bone" is used to translate the Hebrew word, pronounced eh-tsem, that meant bones, but was moreover used as a term for the substance of one's body in referring to children i.e. "my flesh and bones."

Eden The word was first recorded in the Holy Scriptures when the original man saw that the LORD (see The Identity Of The LORD God) had created the first woman. The "rib," as it is traditionally translated, from which the woman was created, was the Hebrew word pronounced min-nay, that meant both bone and side (see also Brides From Their Sides).

As we will see, Adam actually made two prophecies about their bones. Notice the different tense in "This is now bone of my bones" from "she shall be called Woman" and further, for people later (neither Adam or Eve had a biological father or mother), "Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh."

"2:21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; 2:22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

2:23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

2:25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed." (Genesis 2:21-25 KJV)

How and when did the Messiah ultimately fulfill Adam's prophecies? "For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones."

"5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 5:27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. 5:28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. 5:29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:

5:30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. 5:31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. 5:32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church." (Ephesians 5:25-32 KJV)

Further, the Sacrifice that made "For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones" possible specified that none of the bones were to be broken.

The original Passover instructions (see The First Passover):

"12:46 In one house shall it be eaten; thou shalt not carry forth ought of the flesh abroad out of the house; neither shall ye break a bone thereof." (Exodus 12:46 KJV)

"9:11 The fourteenth day of the second month at even they shall keep it, and eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs. 9:12 They shall leave none of it unto the morning, nor break any bone of it: according to all the ordinances of the passover they shall keep it." (Numbers 9:11-12 KJV)

The Crucifixion

It was from the Messiah's Sacrifice that the reason for not breaking any of the Lamb's bones was fulfilled (see The Day That The Messiah Was Crucified).

"19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost [see Giving Up The Ghost].

19:31 The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day [see Why Observe The True Sabbath? to understand that there were two Sabbaths that week]) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.

19:32 Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with him.19:33 But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs: 19:34 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water. 19:35 And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe. 19:36 For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken. 19:37 And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced." (John 19:30-37 KJV)

Many of the statements made by righteous people in the Holy Scriptures were of a greater intent and meaning. While David recognized that the dead are dead ("Our bones are scattered at the grave's mouth"; see Leaving The Soul Behind), he saw through and beyond it to the coming resurrection of the dead ("But mine eyes are unto thee, O GOD the Lord: in thee is my trust; leave not my soul destitute"; see David's Resurrection Prophecy).

"141:1 A Psalm of David.

LORD, I cry unto thee: make haste unto me; give ear unto my voice, when I cry unto thee. 141:2 Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.

141:3 Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips. 141:4 Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to practise wicked works with men that work iniquity: and let me not eat of their dainties.

141:5 Let the righteous smite me; it shall be a kindness: and let him reprove me; it shall be an excellent oil, which shall not break my head: for yet my prayer also shall be in their calamities.

141:6 When their judges are overthrown in stony places, they shall hear my words; for they are sweet. 141:7 Our bones are scattered at the grave's mouth, as when one cutteth and cleaveth wood upon the earth.

141:8 But mine eyes are unto thee, O GOD the Lord: in thee is my trust; leave not my soul destitute. 141:9 Keep me from the snares which they have laid for me, and the gins of the workers of iniquity. 141:10 Let the wicked fall into their own nets, whilst that I withal escape." (Psalm 141:1-10 KJV)
