Psalm 30
New American Standard Bible
Thanksgiving for Deliverance from Death.

A Psalm; a Song at the Dedication of the House. A Psalm of David.

1I will extol You, O LORD, for You have lifted me up,
            And have not let my enemies rejoice over me.

      2O LORD my God,
            I cried to You for help, and You healed me.

      3O LORD, You have brought up my soul from Sheol;
            You have kept me alive, that I would not go down to the pit.

      4Sing praise to the LORD, you His godly ones,
            And give thanks to His holy name.

      5For His anger is but for a moment,
            His favor is for a lifetime;
            Weeping may last for the night,
            But a shout of joy comes in the morning.

      6Now as for me, I said in my prosperity,
            “I will never be moved.”

      7O LORD, by Your favor You have made my mountain to stand strong;
            You hid Your face, I was dismayed.

      8To You, O LORD, I called,
            And to the Lord I made supplication:

      9“What profit is there in my blood, if I go down to the pit?
            Will the dust praise You? Will it declare Your faithfulness?

      10“Hear, O LORD, and be gracious to me;
            O LORD, be my helper.”

      11You have turned for me my mourning into dancing;
            You have loosed my sackcloth and girded me with gladness,

      12That my soul may sing praise to You and not be silent.
            O LORD my God, I will give thanks to You forever.
