1 Samuel 2:6
"The LORD kills and makes alive; He brings down to Sheol and raises up.
He heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds.
The light of the moon will be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun will be seven times brighter, like the light of seven days, on the day the LORD binds up the fracture of His people and heals the bruise He has inflicted.
"Come, let us return to the LORD. For He has torn us, but He will heal us; He has wounded us, but He will bandage us.
