|<< Psalm 30 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
I shall bless you, Lord Jehovah, for you have exalted me, and you have not gladdened my enemies against me.
2Lord Jehovah, my God, I begged of you and you healed me
3And you raised my soul up from Sheol, and you have saved me from those who go down to the pit.
4Sing to Lord Jehovah, his Elect Ones, and give thanks for the remembrance of his Holiness.
5Because rebuke is in his anger, and life is in his pleasure; at evening, weeping will spend the night, and in the morning - joy!
6I said in my quietness, “I shall never be moved.”
7God, in your pleasure you established power upon my glory, and you turned your face and I was shaken.
8And I called you, Lord Jehovah, and I begged of you, my Lord:
9“What profit is there in my blood that I should descend to destruction? The dust does not give thanks to you, neither does it show your faithfulness.
10Hear, God, and show mercy to me”; Lord Jehovah has been a helper to me!
11For you turned my griefs into joy; you took off my sackcloth and you clothed me with joy!
12Therefore I shall sing praise to you and I shall not be silent. Lord Jehovah, my God, I shall confess you for eternity!
