30 1 When David was delivered, from great danger, he rendered thanks to God, exhorting others to do the like, and to learn by his example, that God is rather merciful than severe and rigorous towards his children. 7 And also that the fall from prosperity to adversity is sudden. 8 This done, he returneth to prayer, promising to praise God forever.
A Psalm or song of the dedication of the [a]house of David.
1 I will magnify thee, O Lord: [b]thou hast exalted me, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.
2 O Lord my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast [c]restored me.
3 O Lord, thou hast brought up my [d]soul out of the grave: thou hast revived me from them that go down into the pit.
4 Sing praises unto the Lord, ye [e]his Saints, and give thanks [f]before the remembrance of his Holiness.
5 For he endureth but a while in his anger: but in his favor is life: weeping may abide at evening, but joy cometh in the morning.
6 And in my [g]prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.
7 For thou Lord of thy goodness hadst made my [h]mountain to stand strong: but thou didst hide thy face, and I [i]was troubled.
8 Then cried I unto thee, O Lord, and prayed to my Lord.
9 What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit! shall the [j]dust give thanks unto thee? or shall it declare thy truth?
10 Hear, O Lord, and have mercy upon me: Lord, be thou mine helper.
11 Thou hast turned my mourning into joy: thou hast loosed my sack, and girded me with gladness.
12 Therefore shall my[k]tongue praise thee and not cease: O Lord my God, I will give thanks unto thee forever.
Psalm 30:1After that Absalom had polluted it with most filthy fornication.
