Psalms - Chapter 30 | New King James Version

  • 1. A Psalm. A Song at the dedication of the house of David. I will extol You, O Lord, for You have lifted me up, And have not let my foes rejoice over me.
  • 2. O Lord my God, I cried out to You, And You healed me.
  • 3. O Lord, You brought my soul up from the grave; You have kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit. {cf2super [23]}
  • 4. Sing praise to the Lord, You saints of His, And give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name. {cf2super [24]}
  • 5. For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning.
  • 6. Now in my prosperity I said, "I shall never be moved."
  • 7. Lord, by Your favor You have made my mountain stand strong; You hid Your face, and I was troubled.
  • 8. I cried out to You, O Lord; And to the Lord I made supplication:
  • 9. "What profit is there in my blood, When I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise You? Will it declare Your truth?
  • 10. Hear, O Lord, and have mercy on me; Lord, be my helper!"
  • 11. You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness,
  • 12. To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.
