Psalm 30  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 5
A Psalm and Song at the dedication of the house of David.
I will extol thee, O Jehovah; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.
O Jehovah my Elohim, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.
O Jehovah, 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 Jehovah, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favor is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.
Jehovah, by thy favor thou hast made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled.
I cried to thee, O Jehovah; and unto Jehovah 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?
Hear, O Jehovah, and have mercy upon me: Jehovah, be thou my helper.
Thou hast, turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;
To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O Jehovah my Elohim, I will give thanks unto thee forever.
30:1-3 I praise Jehovah for deliverance; 4, 5 saints to praise; 6-11 a deliverance, to the end that 12 I might praise him.
