Here are 30 verses from the Bible about depression. May this give you hope and strength as you wait for God to bring you out of the Valley of Darkness. Reading the acts and words of Jesus is incredible, but I found it very powerful to see Jesus in that series doing and saying the things of the Scriptures.

Although reading the Psalms can be a little strange because it can also be very sad, don't read it and focus on the sad parts. If you're a religious person, turning to the Bible in difficult times may also come naturally to you. If reading Bible verses for inspiration, reading Bible verses about anxiety, or praying to help relieve anxiety has helped you in the past, knowing that there are Bible verses that address depression could also be helpful. Although the word “depression” is not a biblical word, in the Bible it is often referred to in terms such as “depressed”, “heartbroken”, etc.
The Bible is primarily the great story of God's plan to redeem a people for themselves to the glory of their name.
