JPS Tanakh 1917
1A Psalm; a Song at the Dedication of the House; of David.
2I will extol thee, O LORD, for Thou hast raised me up,
And hast not suffered mine enemies to rejoice over me.
3O LORD my God,
I cried unto Thee, and Thou didst heal me;
4O LORD, Thou broughtest up my soul from the nether-world;
Thou didst kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.
5Sing praise unto the LORD, O ye His godly ones,
And give thanks to His holy name.
6For His anger is but for a moment, His favour is for a life-time;
Weeping may tarry for the night,
But joy cometh in the morning.
7Now I had said in my security:
‘I shall never be moved.’
8Thou hadst established, O LORD, in Thy favour my mountain as a stronghold—
Thou didst hide Thy face; I was affrighted.
9Unto Thee, O LORD, did I call,
And unto the LORD I made supplication:
10‘What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit?
Shall the dust praise Thee? Shall it declare Thy truth?
11Hear, O LORD, and be gracious unto me;
LORD, be Thou my helper.’
12Thou didst turn for me my mourning into dancing;
Thou didst loose my sackcloth, and gird me with gladness;
13So that my glory may sing praise to Thee, and not be silent;
O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto Thee for ever.
