Psalm 30

Thanksgiving for Recovery from Grave Illness

A Psalm. A Song at the dedication of the temple. Of David.

1

I will extol you, O Lord, for you have drawn me up,

and did not let my foes rejoice over me.

2

O Lord my God, I cried to you for help,

and you have healed me.

3

O Lord, you brought up my soul from Sheol,

restored me to life from among those gone down to the Pit.

 

4

Sing praises to the Lord, O you his faithful ones,

and give thanks to his holy name.

5

For his anger is but for a moment;

his favor is for a lifetime.

Weeping may linger for the night,

but joy comes with the morning.

 

6

As for me, I said in my prosperity,

“I shall never be moved.”

7

By your favor, O Lord,

you had established me as a strong mountain;

you hid your face;

I was dismayed.

 

8

To you, O Lord, I cried,

and to the Lord I made supplication:

9

“What profit is there in my death,

if I go down to the Pit?

Will the dust praise you?

Will it tell of your faithfulness?

10

Hear, O Lord, and be gracious to me!

O Lord, be my helper!”

 

11

You have turned my mourning into dancing;

you have taken off my sackcloth

and clothed me with joy,

12

so that my soul may praise you and not be silent.

O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever.
