Proverbs ESV (English Standard Version)
A man’s spirit will endure sickness, but a crushed spirit who can bear? 18:14
A joyful heart is good medicine,
but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. 17:22
A glad heart makes a cheerful face, but by sorrow of heart the spirit is crushed. 15:13
The light of the eyes rejoices the heart, and good news refreshes the bones. 15:30
