Psalms 30

For the end, A Psalm and Song at the dedication of the house of David.

I will exalt You, O Lord; for You have lifted me up, and not caused my enemies to rejoice over me. O Lord my God, I cried to You, and You healed me. O Lord, You have brought up my soul from Hades, You have delivered me from among them that go down to the pit. Sing to the Lord, you His saints, and give thanks for the remembrance of His holiness. For anger is in His wrath, but life in His favor; weeping shall tarry for the evening, but joy comes in the morning. And I said in my prosperity, I shall never be moved. O Lord, in Your good pleasure You added strength to my beauty; but You turned away Your face, and I was troubled. To You, O Lord, will I cry; and to my God will I make supplication. What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to destruction? Shall the dust give praise to You? Or shall it declare Your truth? 10 The Lord heard, and had compassion upon me; the Lord has become my helper. 11 You have turned my mourning into joy for me; You have removed my sackcloth, and have clothed me with gladness; 12 that my glory may sing praise to You, and I may not be pierced with sorrow. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.
