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.
2O LORD my God, I cried to thee, and thou hast healed me. 3O LORD, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit. 4Sing to the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
at...: or, to the memorial
5For 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

6And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved. 7LORD, 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
8I cried to thee, O LORD; and to the LORD I made supplication. 9What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth? 10Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me: LORD, be thou my helper. 11Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness; 12To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks to thee for ever.
my glory: that is, my tongue, or, my soul
