Sick, Sickness To have an illness or disease. In the scriptures, physical illness sometimes serves as a symbol for a lack of spiritual well-being (Isa. 1:4–7; 33:24). I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will heal thee, 2 Kgs. 20:1–5 (2 Chr. 32:24; Isa. 38:1–5). Jesus went about healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease, Matt. 4:23–24 (1 Ne. 11:31; Mosiah 3:5–6). They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick, Matt. 9:10–13 (Mark 2:14–17; Luke 5:27–32). Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders, James 5:14–15. Christ will take upon him the pains and sicknesses of his people, Alma 7:10–12. Jesus healed all the sick among the Nephites, 3 Ne. 26:15. Nourish the sick with tenderness, herbs, and mild food, D&C 42:43 (Alma 46:40). Remember in all things the sick and the afflicted, D&C 52:40. Lay your hands upon the sick, and they shall recover, D&C 66:9.
