Psalms 30

Joy Comes with the Morning

A Psalm of David. A song at the dedication of a  the temple.

1 I will b  extol you, O  Lord, for you have drawn me up
and have not let my foes c  rejoice over me.
2O  Lord my God, I d  cried to you for help,
and you have e  healed me.
3O  Lord, you have brought up my soul from f  Sheol;
you restored me to life from among those who g  go down to the pit.
Or  to life, that I should not go down to the pit

4 Sing praises to the  Lord, O you i  his saints,
and j  give thanks to his holy name.
Hebrew  to the memorial of his holiness (see Exodus 3:15)

5 l  For his anger is but for a moment,
and m  his favor is for a lifetime.
Or  and in his favor is life

o  Weeping may tarry for the night,
but p  joy comes with the morning.
6 As for me, I said in my q  prosperity,
“I shall never be r  moved.”
7By your favor, O  Lord,
you made my s  mountain stand strong;
you t  hid your face;
I was u  dismayed.
8 To you, O  Lord, I cry,
and v  to the Lord I plead for mercy:
9“What profit is there in my death
Hebrew  in my blood

if I go down to the pit?
Or  to corruption

Will y  the dust praise you?
Will it tell of your faithfulness?
10 z  Hear, O  Lord, and be merciful to me!
O  Lord, be my helper!”
11 You have turned for me my mourning into aa  dancing;
you have loosed my sackcloth
and clothed me with gladness,
12that my ab  glory may sing your praise and not be silent.
O  Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever!
