The following is a list of causes of sickness from scripture. If you can think of anymore additions to this list, please add. Bread (Isa. 3:7; Acts 27:34). Clothing (Isa. 3:7). Envy (Prov. 14:30). (Sophocles said, that "despair often breeds disease"). Sin (James 5:14-15). Poor social support (Prov. 12:25; 17:22; 13:20; Eccles. 4:10). Testing from God (Job 1-2). Physical object (Mark 16:18). Ecclesiastes says that there are righteous men who are rewarded with what the evil deserve (Eccles. 8:14). Maybe this should fall in with Job 1-2 above though.
