Comforting Scriptures For The Brokenhearted

By Tercius

I put together this list of Bible verses about comfort because it is my desire and heart that this blog and my other websites would be a place where people could come and receive healing for the hurts that they have received. Having gone through some severe tragedies myself in the last 50 years, I have a heart to see people made whole. This list of Bible verses about comfort is broken down into 3 parts. The words of Kind David, The words of the Apostle Paul, and the words of the "Word of God" himself, Jesus Christ. I hope that you will find the comfort you are seeking in these pages. God is not done with you. He will heal and comfort your broken heart.

Bible Verses About Comfort from David, Paul and Jesus


 Psalm 23:4

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

Psalm 71:21

You shall increase my greatness, And comfort me on every side.

Psalm 94:19

In the multitude of my anxieties within me, Your comforts delight my soul.


 Romans 15:4-5

For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope. 5 Now may the God of patience and comfort grant you to be like-minded toward one another, according to Christ Jesus,

2 Corinthians 1:3-4

[ Comfort in Suffering ] Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.

2 Corinthians 7:6

Nevertheless God, who comforts the downcast, comforted us by the coming of Titus,

Philippians 2:1-3

Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, 2 fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. 3 Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.


Matthew 5:4

Blessed are those who mourn, For they shall be comforted.

John 14:16

And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

John 14:26

But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

John 15:26

But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

John 16:7

Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.

Jesus promised that we would not be left alone but that He would send the Holy Spirit to comfort us. The Holy Spirit is the most misunderstood member of the Godhead. Because He is not tangible, by sight sound or touch, many Christians forget to establish a relationship with the Holy Spirit. I would like to encourage you today to just ask Jesus to send the Comforter, the Holy Spirit to comfort you in your hour of need.

God Bless You
