Psalm 30:3-4 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

O Lord, my God,
    I cried out to you for help and you healed[a] me.
Lord, you brought my soul up from Sheol;
    you let me live, from going down to the pit.[b]

Psalm 30:6-8 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

For his anger lasts but a moment;
    his favor a lifetime.
At dusk weeping comes for the night;
    but at dawn there is rejoicing.

III

Complacent,[a] I once said,
    “I shall never be shaken.”
Lord, you showed me favor,
    established for me mountains of virtue.
But when you hid your face
    I was struck with terror.

Footnotes:

  1. 30:7 Complacent: untroubled existence is often seen as a source of temptation to forget God, cf. Dt 8:10–18; Hos 13:6; Prv 30:9.
