Psalm 30

A Song at the Dedication of the House of David

 

1 I will extol Thee, O Lord, for Thou hast drawn me up,

   and hast not let my foes rejoice over me.

2 O Lord my God, I cried to Thee for help,

   and Thou hast healed me.

3 O Lord, Thou hast brought up my soul from Sheol,

   restored me to life from among those gone down to the Pit.

4 Sing praises to the Lord, O you His saints,

   and give thanks to His holy name.

5 For His anger is but for a moment,

   and His favor is for a lifetime.

Psalm 30 A Song at the Dedication of the House of David

Weeping may tarry for the night,

   but joy comes with the morning.

6 As for me, I said in my prosperity,

   “I shall never be moved.”

7 By Thy favor, O Lord,

   Thou hadst established me as a strong mountain;

Thou didst hide thy face,

   I was dismayed.

8 To Thee, O Lord, I cried;

   and to the Lord I made supplication:

9 “What profit is there in my death,

   if I go down to the Pit?

Will the dust praise Thee?

   Will it tell of Thy faithfulness?

10 Hear, O Lord, and be gracious to me!

   O Lord, be Thou my helper!”

11 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing;

   Thou hast loosed my sackcloth

   and girded me with gladness,

12 that my soul may praise Thee and not be silent.

   O Lord my God, I will give thanks to Thee for ever.

– Psalm 30
