PSALM 30 Thanksgiving for Deliverance from Death. A Psalm; a Song at the Dedication of the House. A Psalm of David. 30 1I will extol You, O Lord, for You have lifted me up, And have not let my enemies rejoice over me. 2O Lord my God, I cried to You for help, and You healed me. 3O Lord, You have brought up my soul from [N]Sheol; You have kept me alive, [O]that I would not go down to the pit. 4Sing praise to the Lord, you His godly ones, And give thanks to His holy [P]name. 5For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for a lifetime; Weeping may last for the night, But a shout of joy comes in the morning. 6Now as for me, I said in my prosperity, “I will never be moved.” 7O Lord, by Your favor You have made my mountain to stand strong; You hid Your face, I was dismayed. 8To You, O Lord, I called, And to the Lord I made supplication: 9“What profit is there in my blood, if I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise You? Will it declare Your faithfulness? 10“Hear, O Lord, and be gracious to me; O Lord, be my helper.” 11You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have loosed my sackcloth and girded me with gladness, 12That my [Q]soul may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.
