What does Psalm 147:3 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Psalms 147:3

He healeth the broken in heart
Christ is a physician; many are the diseases of his people; he heals them all by his blood, stripes, wounds; and among the rest their broken hearts, which none can cure but himself; hearts broken by the word, as a hammer, accompanied with a divine power; which have a true sense of sin, and godly sorrow for it; are truly contrite, such as the Lord has a respect unto, dwells with, and accepts of; and these he heals, and only he, by pouring in oil and wine, as the good Samaritan; or by applying pardoning grace and mercy to them, streaming through his blood; and bindeth up their wounds;
or "griefs" F14; and so gives them ease, health, and peace, for which they have abundant reason to call upon their souls to bless his name and sing his praise; see ( Psalms 103:1-3 ) ; compare with this ( Isaiah 61:1 ) ( Luke 10:30-34 ) .
