Summary of Psalm 147:3

Psalm 147:3 (ESV)

3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.

The Lord also heals wounds, spiritually and physically. It literally says here that the Lord heals those with a broken heart. For broken heart, see also Psalm 51:17. The focus of this verse is on someone who is broken deep inside because he wandered away from God’s ways.

Psalm 147:3b connects with this. This is a beautiful verse that says that the Lord, despite all that has happened and all that went wrong, wants to grant healing. This verse shows us the heart of our God, especially as we see it in the life of Jesus Christ.
