Psalms 30
New Living Translation

A psalm of David. A song for the dedication of the Temple.

30I will exalt you, LORD, for you rescued me. You refused to let my enemies triumph over me.

2O LORD my God, I cried to you for help, and you restored my health.

3You brought me up from the grave[1], O LORD. You kept me from falling into the pit of death.

4Sing to the LORD, all you godly ones! Praise his holy name.

5For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime! Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning.

6When I was prosperous, I said, "Nothing can stop me now!"

7Your favor, O LORD, made me as secure as a mountain. Then you turned away from me, and I was shattered.

8I cried out to you, O LORD. I begged the Lord for mercy, saying,

9"What will you gain if I die, if I sink into the grave? Can my dust praise you? Can it tell of your faithfulness?

10Hear me, LORD, and have mercy on me. Help me, O LORD."

11You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing. You have taken away my clothes of mourning and clothed me with joy,

12that I might sing praises to you and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give you thanks forever!



[1] Psalms 30:3Hebrew from Sheol
