He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.

Psalm 147:3 (NKJV)

He healeth the broken in heart – Referring primarily to the fact that he had healed those who were crushed and broken in their long captivity and that he had given them comfort by returning them to their native land.

At the same time however, the language is made general and describes a characteristic of God that he does this; that it is his character to do this. Compare Isaiah 61:1; Luke 4:18.

And bindeth up their wounds – The word refers to those who are afflicted with griefs and troubles. The reference is to mental sorrows, to a troubled spirit; to a heart made sad in any way.

God has provided healing and to those he gives peace.
