Psalms 30

A psalm of David. A song for the dedication of the Temple.
 1  "I will exalt you, LORD, for you rescued me. You refused to let my enemies triumph over me."  2  O LORD my God, I cried to you for help,
  and you restored my health.
 3  You brought me up from the grave, [3]  O LORD.
  You kept me from falling into the pit of death.

 4  Sing to the LORD, all you godly ones!
  Praise his holy name.
 5  For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime! Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning.  6  When I was prosperous, I said,
  "Nothing can stop me now!"
 7  Your favor, O LORD, made me as secure as a mountain.
  Then you turned away from me, and I was shattered.

 8  I cried out to you, O LORD.
  I begged the Lord for mercy, saying,
 9  "What will you gain if I die,
  if I sink into the grave?
Can my dust praise you?
  Can it tell of your faithfulness?
 10  Hear me, LORD, and have mercy on me.
  Help me, O LORD."

 11  You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing.
  You have taken away my clothes of mourning and clothed me with joy,
 12  that I might sing praises to you and not be silent.
  O LORD my God, I will give you thanks forever!
<<  30:3 Hebrew from Sheol.
