20:11 Bones - His whole body, even the strongest parts of it. The sin - Of the punishment of it.

20:12 Mouth - To his taste; though it greatly please him for the present. Hide - As an epicure doth a sweet morsel, which he keeps and rolls about his mouth, that he may longer enjoy the pleasure of it.
