Psalm 30

Psalm 30[a]

A psalm. A song. For the dedication of the temple.[b] Of David.

I will exalt you, Lord,
    for you lifted me out of the depths
    and did not let my enemies gloat over me.
Lord my God, I called to you for help,
    and you healed me.
You, Lord, brought me up from the realm of the dead;
    you spared me from going down to the pit.

Sing the praises of the Lord, you his faithful people;
    praise his holy name.
For his anger lasts only a moment,
    but his favor lasts a lifetime;
weeping may stay for the night,
    but rejoicing comes in the morning.

When I felt secure, I said,
    “I will never be shaken.”
Lord, when you favored me,
    you made my royal mountain[c] stand firm;
but when you hid your face,
    I was dismayed.

To you, Lord, I called;
    to the Lord I cried for mercy:
“What is gained if I am silenced,
    if I go down to the pit?
Will the dust praise you?
    Will it proclaim your faithfulness?
10 Hear, Lord, and be merciful to me;
    Lord, be my help.”

11 You turned my wailing into dancing;
    you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,
12 that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent.
    Lord my God, I will praise you forever.

诗篇 30

感恩的祷告

大卫的诗,作献殿之歌。

1耶和华啊,我要赞美你,
因为你救我脱离危难,
不让我的仇敌幸灾乐祸。
我的上帝耶和华啊,
我呼求你,你就医治了我。
耶和华啊,你从阴间把我救出,
没有让我落入坟墓。
耶和华忠心的子民啊,
你们要歌颂祂,
赞美祂的圣名。
因为祂的怒气瞬间消逝,
祂的恩惠却持续一生。
我们虽然整夜哭泣,
早晨必定欢呼。
我在顺境中曾说:
“我永不动摇。”
耶和华啊,
你向我施恩,我便稳固如山;
你掩面不理我,我就惊慌失措。
耶和华啊,我向你呼求,
恳求你怜悯,说:
“耶和华啊,
我被毁灭、落入坟墓有何益处?
我归于尘土,还能赞美你、
宣扬你的信实吗?
10 耶和华啊,求你垂听我的呼求,怜悯我!
耶和华啊,求你帮助我!”
11 你把我的哀哭变成了舞步,
为我脱下悲伤的麻衣,
披上喜乐的外袍,
12 好叫我从心底歌颂你,
不致默然无声。
我的上帝耶和华啊,
我要永远向你感恩!
