Psalm 30
Amplified Bible Par ▾ 

Thanksgiving for Deliverance from Death.

A Psalm; a Song at the Dedication of the House (Temple). A Psalm of David.

1I will extol and praise You, O LORD, for You have lifted me up,

And have not let my enemies rejoice over me.

2O LORD my God,

I cried to You for help, and You have healed me.

3O LORD, You have brought my life up from Sheol (the nether world, the place of the dead);

You have kept me alive, so that I would not go down to the pit (grave).

4Sing to the LORD, O you His godly ones,

And give thanks at the mention of His holy name.

5For His anger is but for a moment,

[a]His favor is for a lifetime.

Weeping may endure for a night,

But a shout of joy comes in the morning.

6As for me, in my prosperity I said,

“I shall never be moved.”

7By Your favor and grace, O LORD, you have made my mountain stand strong;

You hid Your face, and I was horrified.

8I called to You, O LORD,

And to the Lord I made supplication (specific request).

9“What profit is there in my blood (death), if I go down to the pit (grave)?

Will the dust praise You? Will it declare Your faithfulness [to man]?

10“Hear, O LORD, be gracious and show favor to me;

O LORD, be my helper.”

11You have turned my mourning into dancing for me;

You have taken off my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,

12That my soul may sing praise to You and not be silent.

O LORD my God, I will give thanks to You forever.

[a] 5 Or in His favor is life.
