A Psalm; a Song at the Dedication of the House (Temple). A Psalm of David.
30 I will extol and praise You, O Lord, for You have lifted me up, And have not let my enemies rejoice over me. 2 O Lord my God, I cried to You for help, and You have healed me. 3 O Lord, You have brought my life up from Sheol (the nether world, the place of the dead); You have kept me alive, so that I would not go down to the pit (grave). 4 Sing to the Lord, O you His godly ones, And give thanks at the mention of His holy name. 5 For His anger is but for a moment, [a]His favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may endure for a night, But a shout of joy comes in the morning.
6 As for me, in my prosperity I said, “I shall never be moved.” 7 By Your favor and grace, O Lord, you have made my mountain stand strong; You hid Your face, and I was horrified. 8 I called to You, O Lord, And to the Lord I made supplication (specific request). 9 “What profit is there in my blood (death), if I go down to the pit (grave)? Will the dust praise You? Will it declare Your faithfulness [to man]?
10 “Hear, O Lord, be gracious and show favor to me; O Lord, be my helper.” 11 You have turned my mourning into dancing for me; You have taken off my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, 12 That my soul may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.
