Psalms 30


A Psalm and Song at the dedication of the house of David.

I will extol thee, O  Lord; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me. O  Lord my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me. O  Lord, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit. Sing unto the  Lord, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
at…: or, to the memorial
For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
his anger…: Heb. there is but a moment in his anger
for a night: Heb. in the evening
joy: Heb. singing
And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.  Lord, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled.
made…: Heb. settled strength for my mountain
I cried to thee, O  Lord; and unto the  Lord I made supplication. What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth? 10 Hear, O  Lord, and have mercy upon me:  Lord, be thou my helper. 11 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness; 12 To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O  Lord my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.
my glory: that is, my tongue, or, my soul
