Psalm 30 The Blessedness of Answered Prayer A Psalm. A Song At the Dedication of the House of David. 30 1I will extol You, O Lord, for You have lifted me up, And have not let my foes rejoice over me. 2O Lord my God, I cried out to You, And You healed me. 3O Lord, You brought my soul up from the grave; You have kept me alive, [N]that I should not go down to the pit. 4Sing praise to the Lord, you saints of His, And give thanks at the remembrance of [O]His holy name. 5For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But [P]joy comes in the morning. 6Now in my prosperity I said, “I shall never be [Q]moved.” 7Lord, by Your favor You have made my mountain stand strong; You hid Your face, and I was troubled. 8I cried out to You, O Lord; And to the Lord I made supplication: 9“What profit is there in my blood, When I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise You? Will it declare Your truth? 10Hear, O Lord, and have mercy on me; Lord, be my helper!” 11You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have put off [R]my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, 12To the end that my [S]glory may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.
