25 Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop: but a good word maketh it glad.
25 Anxiety weighs down the heart, but a kind word cheers it up.
25 Anxiety in a man's heart weighs him down, but a good word makes him glad.
25 Worry weighs us down; a cheerful word picks us up.
25 Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, But a good word makes it glad.
25 Worry weighs a person down; an encouraging word cheers a person up.

Commentary on Proverbs 12:25
(Read Proverbs 12:25)
Care, fear, and sorrow, upon the spirits, deprive men of vigour in what is to be done, or courage in what is to be borne. A good word from God, applied by faith, makes the heart glad.
