Yes, he clothed himself with cursing like his garment
— let it come back into his inward parts like water and like oil into his bones! Bible

“like water and like oil into his bones.” The allusion that the psalmist is drawing upon is not known. Some commentators have made suggestions but the fact is no one really knows. We do know that the bones are the core of the body, and so now the curses this wicked person has spoken to others will come back upon him to his very core.
