Psalm 30

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

A    I will extol thee, O LORD;
for thou hast lifted me up,
and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.

B  2  O LORD my God, I cried unto thee,
and thou hast healed me.
3  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.

C  4  Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his,
and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
5  For his anger endureth but a moment;
in his favour  is life:

D weeping may endure for a night,
but joy cometh in the morning.

C’ 6   And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.
LORD, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong:

B’  thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled.
I cried to thee, O LORD;
and unto the LORD I made supplication.
9  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.

A’ 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.
