Holman Christian Standard Bible
1A psalm; a dedication song for the house. Davidic. I will exalt You, LORD, because You have lifted me up and have not allowed my enemies to triumph over me.
2 LORD my God, I cried to You for help, and You healed me.
3 LORD, You brought me up from Sheol; You spared me from among those going down to the Pit.
4Sing to Yahweh, you His faithful ones, and praise His holy name.
5For His anger lasts only a moment, but His favor, a lifetime. Weeping may spend the night, but there is joy in the morning.
6When I was secure, I said," I will never be shaken."
7 LORD, when You showed Your favor, You made me stand like a strong mountain; when You hid Your face, I was terrified.
8 LORD, I called to You; I sought favor from my Lord:"
9What gain is there in my death, if I go down to the Pit? Will the dust praise You? Will it proclaim Your truth?
10 LORD, listen and be gracious to me; LORD, be my helper."
11You turned my lament into dancing; You removed my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness,
12so that I can sing to You and not be silent. LORD my God, I will praise You forever.
