And it came to pass on the fourth day that they arose early in the morning and prepared to leave, but the young woman’s father said to his son-in-law, “Strengthen your heart with a piece of bread, and after that you can go.” Bible

“Strengthen your heart.” The Hebrew word translated “strengthen” can be related to strength, or even comfort (KJV); and the usage of “heart” is idiomatic. “Fortify yourself” (NRSV).
