Psalm 51:8; Isaiah 38:13; Jeremiah 50:17

Let me hear joy and gladness;

jlet the bones kthat you have broken rejoice.

13  eI calmed myself1 until morning;

like a lion fhe breaks all my bones;

from day to night you bring me to an end.

17 lIsrael is a hunted sheep mdriven away by lions. nFirst the king of Assyria odevoured him, and now at last pNebuchadnezzar king of Babylon qhas gnawed his bones.
