Thanksgiving for Deliverance from Death.
A Psalm; a Song at the Dedication of the House (Temple). A Psalm of David.
I will extol and praise 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 have healed me.
O Lord, You have brought my life up from Sheol (the nether world, the place of the dead);
You have kept me alive, so that I would not go down to the pit (grave).
Sing to the Lord, O you His godly ones,
And give thanks at the mention of His holy name.
For His anger is but for a moment,
[a]His favor is for a lifetime.
Weeping may endure for a night,
But a shout of joy comes in the morning.
As for me, in my prosperity I said,
“I shall never be moved.”
By Your favor and grace, O Lord, you have made my mountain stand strong;
You hid Your face, and I was horrified.
- Psalm 30:5 Or in His favor is life.
