God uses the word "contrite" to describe the broken heart. It literally means to be crushed. In Isaiah 53:10 the word is used in reference to Jesus Christ ". . . Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin" The word "bruise" is the same word "contrite, meaning to be crushed, broken."
