The New Interpreter’s Dictionary of the Bible
In the modern sense of a person certified to engage in diagnosis and therapy through naturalistic/scientific means, physician has no exact equivalent in the Bible. The Hebrew term rofe' refers to a person who treats bodily injuries with medicinal substances (Jer 8:22; compare Exod 21: 19), as well as embalmers (Gen 50:2). Yahweh is called a rofe' in Exod 15:26 ("the LORD who heals you").
