Heal the brokenhearted

 

The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed and qualified me to preach the Gospel of good tidings
to the meek, the poor, and afflicted;
 
He has sent me to bind up and heal the brokenhearted,
to proclaim liberty to the [physical and spiritual] captives and
the opening of the prison and of the eyes to those who are bound,
 
To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord [the year of His favor]
and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,
 
To grant [consolation and joy] to those who mourn in Zion—
to give them an ornament (a garland or diadem) of beauty instead of ashes,
 the oil of joy instead of mourning,
the garment [expressive] of praise instead of a heavy, burdened, and failing spirit
 
—that they may be called oaks of righteousness [lofty, strong, and magnificent, distinguished for uprightness, justice, and right standing with God], the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.
 
Isaiah 61:1-3 Amplified Bible
