A person’s spirit can endure his sickness,
but a broken spirit, who can bear that? Bible see other translations

“person’s.” The word “person” is iysh (#0376 אִישׁ), which most literally refers to a man, but it can also be used to refer to men and women, and it makes sense to translate it in a gender-neutral way in this context (see commentary on Prov. 2:12, “the one”).
