JEHOVAH Protected All HIS SON'S Bones From Being Broken

Psalm 34

Of David. When he pretended to be insane before Abimelek, who drove him away, and he left.

1I will extol The LORD at all times;
HIS Praise Will always Be on my lips.
2I will glory In The LORD;
Let the afflicted hear and rejoice.
3Glorify The LORD with me;
let us exalt HIS Name together.
4I sought The LORD, and HE Answered me;
HE Delivered me from all my fears.
5Those who look to HIM are radiant;
their faces are never covered with shame.
6This poor man called, and The LORD heard him;
HE Saved him out of all his troubles.
7The ANGEL of The LORD Encamps around those who fear HIM,
and HE Delivers them.

8Taste and see that The LORD Is Good;
blessed is the one who takes refuge in HIM.
9Fear The LORD, you HIS holy people,
for those who fear HIM lack nothing.
10The lions may grow weak and hungry,
but those who seek The LORD lack no good thing.
11Come, my children, listen to me;
I will teach you The Fear of The LORD.

12Whoever of you loves life
and desires to see many good days,
13keep your tongue from evil
and your lips from telling lies.
14Turn from evil and do good;
seek peace and pursue it.
15The Eyes of The LORD Are On the righteous,
and His Ears Are Attentive To their cry;
16but the Face of The LORD Is Against those who do evil,
To Blot out their name from the earth.
17The righteous cry out, and The LORD Hears them;
HE Delivers them from all their troubles.
18The LORD Is Close To the brokenhearted
and Saves those who are crushed in spirit.
19The righteous person may have many troubles,
But The LORD Delivers him from them all;

20 HE Protects All His Bones,
Not One of Them Will Be Broken.

21Evil will slay the wicked;
the foes of the righteous will be condemned.
22The LORD Will Rescue His servants;
no one who takes refuge in Him will be condemned.

Psalm 34

The title of this Psalm tells us both who penned it and upon what occasion it was penned. David, being forced to flee from his country by the rage of Saul, sought shelter as near it as he could, in the land of the Philistines. There it was soon discovered who he was, and he was brought before the king, who, in the narrative, is called Achish (his proper name), here Abimelech (his title); and lest he should be treated as a spy, he faked himself to be a madman so that Achish might dismiss him as a contemptible man, rather than see him as a dangerous man. And it had the effect he desired and David escaped the hand of Achish.  See 1 Samuel 21:13.

Verse 20

HE Protects All HIS Bones,Not One of Them Will Be Broken

This is literally true of CHRIST, in whom the type of the Passover LAMB had its accomplishment.

It must be eaten inside the house; take none of the meat outside the house. Do not break any of the bones.”

 This precept was also given to point out a most remarkable circumstance which 1500 years after was to take place in the crucifixion of The SAVIOR of mankind, who was the True Passover LAMB, that LAMB of GOD that takes away the sin of the world; who, though HE Was Crucified as a common malefactor, and it was a universal custom to break the legs of such on the cross, yet so did the Providence of GOD order it that a Bone of HIM was not broken.

See the fulfillment of this wondrously expressive type;

John 19:32-36

The soldiers therefore came and broke the legs of the first man who had been crucified with JESUS, and then those of the other. But when they came to JESUS and found that HE Was already Dead, they did not break His Legs. Instead, one of the soldiers pierced JESUS’ side with a spear, bringing a sudden flow of blood and water. 

The man who saw it has given testimony, and his testimony is true. He knows that he tells the truth, and he testifies so that you also may believe.  These things happened so that the scripture would be fulfilled: “Not one of HIS bones will be broken,  and, as another scripture says, “They will look on The ONE they have pierced.”
