Psalm 30

Thanksgiving for Deliverance from Death.

A Psalm; a Song at the Dedication of the House. A Psalm of David.

1I will extol You, O Lord, for You have lifted me up,
And have not let my enemies rejoice over me.
O Lord my God,
I cried to You for help, and You healed me.
O Lord, You have brought up my soul from [a]Sheol;
You have kept me alive, [b]that I would not go down to the pit.
Sing praise to the Lord, you His godly ones,
And give thanks to His holy [c]name.
For 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.

Now as for me, I said in my prosperity,
“I will never be moved.”
O Lord, by Your favor You have made my mountain to stand strong;
You hid Your face, I was dismayed.
To You, O Lord, I called,
And to the Lord I made supplication:
“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.”
11 You have turned for me my mourning into dancing;
You have loosed my sackcloth and girded me with gladness,
12 That my [d]soul may sing praise to You and not be silent.
O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.

Psalm 30

Psalm 30

A psalm of David. A song for setting apart the completed temple to God.

Lord, I will give you honor.
    You brought me out of deep trouble.
    You didn’t give my enemies the joy of seeing me die.
Lord my God, I called out to you for help.
    And you healed me.
Lord, you brought me up from the place of the dead.
    You kept me from going down into the pit.

Sing the praises of the Lord, you who are faithful to him.
    Praise him, because his name is holy.
His anger lasts for only a moment.
    But his favor lasts for a person’s whole life.
Weeping can stay for the night.
    But joy comes in the morning.

When I felt safe, I said,
    “I will always be secure.”
Lord, when you gave me your help,
    you made Mount Zion stand firm.
But when you took away your help,
    I was terrified.

Lord, I called out to you.
    I cried to you for mercy.
I said, “What good will come if I become silent in death?
    What good will come if I go down into the grave?
Can the dust of my dead body praise you?
    Can it tell how faithful you are?
10 Lord, hear me. Have mercy on me.
    Lord, help me.”

11 You turned my loud crying into dancing.
    You removed my clothes of sadness and dressed me with joy.
12 So my heart will sing your praises. I can’t keep silent.
    Lord, my God, I will praise you forever.
