I have broken several bones during my lifetime. I have known people with arthritis and leukemia. Osteoporosis is a plague to many people.

As I read proverbs, it seemed to address several problems with bones. I went through Strong's Concordance and found what I could about bones. I have presented the verses here along with a few comments.

Before I completed this paper I fell and broke my pelvis. As I was recovering I found comfort in the section about broken bones.


Proverbs 12:7 A woman that makes her husband ashamed is as a rottenness to his bones

Proverbs 14:30 Envy is the rottenness of the bones.

James 3:16 Where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.


Love one another.


Jeremiah 20:9 If you do not declare the goodness of God and all that he has done, you will suffer a burning in your bones and a weariness of spirit.

Psalms 32:3 When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through roaring all day long.

Psalms 6:2 Oh Lord, Heal me for my bones are vexed.

Psalms 118:17 I shall not die but live and declare the works of the Lord.


Proverbs:7-8 Be not wise in your own eyes: fear the Lord and depart from evil. It shall be health to thy navel and marrow to thy bones.


Repent of the evil that you have done and are doing and ask Jesus to forgive you and be the boss of your life.

Proverbs 16:24 Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul and health to the bones.


Does Honey give health to the bones? Yes, see attachment.

Matthew 12:34. Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.

James 3:6. The tongue sets on fire the whole course of nature.


Speak good things about people.

Psalms 51:8. Make me to hear joy and gladness that the bones which you have broken may rejoice.

Proverbs 15:30. A good report makes the bones fat.


The New Testament is called the Good News Bible. It is a good report. Read it.

Isaiah 66:14. When you see that Jerusalem does well, your bones shall flourish.

Psalms 122:6. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.

Broken Bones:

Psalms 34:20. The Lord keeps all the righteous man's bones, not one of them shall be broken.

2 Corinthians 5:21. For God has made Jesus to be made sin for us, who knew no sin, that we might be made the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.


Therefore, because I am in Jesus, I am made the righteousness of God through Christ Jesus. Therefore, my bones cannot be broken. Bones get in line with the word of God. You are healed and strong. Amen.

Back Pain:

In the 38th Psalm of the NIV the Psalmist lists a series of ailments. In verse 7 he includes "searing back pain". He attributes these ailments to "sinful folly" verse 5. In verse 18 he confesses his sin, and in verses 21-22 he calls upon the Lord to not forsake him and to come quickly to help him.


As I try to put this together, it sounds like he did something stupid (sinful folly) and hurt his back. Now he repents (confesses his iniquity) or promises to never do that again, and asks the Lord to heal his back.


Dear God, in the name of Jesus, forgive me of my sins, I confess that I have sinned. Lord remind me of my sins so that I may repent. As you reveal them to me I repent. Dear God, Your word says that by your stripes I am healed. 1 Peter 2:24. I claim that healing for my back. Your word says that nothing shall by any means hurt me. Luke 10:19. Dear God, remind me of my foolishness and keep me from doing those things that would hurt my back. If I do foolish things, do not let my back be injured. Thank you Lord Jesus for my deliverance. Amen.

Raw honey is a so pure that bacteria cannot survive in it, and it contains essential pottasium and natural antioxidants.

- Recent Medical Research -

The Honey Research Unit at The University of Waikato, in New Zealand, has been studying the composition of honey and its antimicrobial activity. The antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of honey have now been fully documented.

Peter Molan of the HRU explains that the viscosity of honey draws fluid from a wound and forms a protective barrier over it. Honey made from the flowers of the manuka bush, a native of New Zealand has exceptionally good healing properties. The unique manuka factor gives it greater potency. The antibacterial action of manuka honey is highly stable and can penetrate deep into infected wounds, where it promotes the growth of white blood cells.

Researchers at the University of Copenhagen treated arthritis patients with a mixture of one tablespoon honey and half teaspoon cinnamon powder daily, before breakfast. Many patients experienced total relief from pain within two weeks. Within a month, some of those who were previously unable to walk or move around, because of the pain, began to walk again.

Honey has always been used in traditional remedies, and for a very good reason. It really works!
