Here are the 40 most comforting Bible scriptures on healing a broken heart.
The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.
“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
1 Corinthians 10:13
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
1 Corinthians 13:7
Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
1 Peter 2:24
He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.
2 Corinthians 12:9

2 Corinthians 5:7
For we walk by faith, not by sight.
3 John 1:2
Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul.
Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”
Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
“Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old.”
But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his stripes we are healed.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”
“Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father.”
“Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.”
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.”
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end.
“Nothing is covered up that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known.”
And the Lord said, “If you had faith like a grain of mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.”
“Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him.”
“They will pick up serpents with their hands; and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”
I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
Wisdom cries aloud in the street, in the markets she raises her voice.
Who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases.
He sent out his word and healed them, and delivered them from their destruction.
As for me, I said, “O Lord, be gracious to me; heal me, for I have sinned against you!”
Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved.
So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
