Psalm 30
New American Standard Bible►► 

Thanksgiving for Rescue from Death.

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

1I will exalt You, LORD, for You have lifted me up,

And have not let my enemies rejoice over me.

2LORD my God,

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

3LORD, You have brought up my soul from [a]Sheol;

You have kept me alive, [b]that I would not go down to the pit.

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

And praise the mention of His holiness.

5For His anger is but for a moment,

His favor is for a lifetime;

Weeping may last for the night,

But a shout of joy comes in the morning.

6Now as for me, I said in my prosperity,

“I will never be moved.”

7LORD, by Your favor You have made my mountain to stand strong;

You hid Your face, I was dismayed.

8To You, LORD, I called,

And to the Lord I pleaded for compassion:

9“What gain is there in my blood, if I go down to the pit?

Will the dust praise You? Will it declare Your faithfulness?

10“Hear, LORD, and be gracious to me;

LORD, be my helper.”

11You have turned my mourning into dancing for me;

You have untied my sackcloth and encircled me with joy,

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

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

[a] 3 I.e., the netherworld
[b] 3 Some mss from among those who go down
[c] 12 Lit glory
