CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
And when ye see this - This great accession to the church from the Gentile world.
Your bones shall flourish like an herb - This is an image which is often employed in the Scriptures. When the vigor of the body fails, or when it is much afflicted, the bones are said to be feeble or weakened, or to be dried Psalm 6:2; Psalm 51:8; Psalm 22:14, Psalm 22:17; Psalm 38:3; Lamentations 1:13; Proverbs 14:30; Proverbs 17:22. like manner, prosperity, health, vigor, are denoted by making the bones fat (see the notes at Isaiah 58:11; Proverbs 15:20), or by imparting health, marrow, or strength to them Proverbs 3:8; Proverbs 16:24. The sense here is, that their vigor would be greatly increased.
The hand of the Lord shall be known - That is, it shall be seen that he is powerful to defend his people, and to punish their enemies.

Mr. Bunyan's Last Sermon:
"So Then they that are in the Flesh Cannot Please God. "
For on the first of the first month he began to go up from Babylon; and on the first of the fifth month he came to Jerusalem, because the good hand of his God was upon him.
Then we journeyed from the river Ahava on the twelfth of the first month to go to Jerusalem; and the hand of our God was over us, and He delivered us from the hand of the enemy and the ambushes by the way.
It will be healing to your body And refreshment to your bones.
Woe to Assyria, the rod of My anger And the staff in whose hands is My indignation,
They are coming from a far country, From the farthest horizons, The LORD and His instruments of indignation, To destroy the whole land.
Come, my people, enter into your rooms And close your doors behind you; Hide for a little while Until indignation runs its course.
Behold, the name of the LORD comes from a remote place; Burning is His anger and dense is His smoke; His lips are filled with indignation And His tongue is like a consuming fire;
