Psalm 30 King James Version

Thanksgiving for Deliverance from Death

30 I will extol thee, O Lord; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me. 2  O Lord my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me. 3  O Lord, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit. 4  Sing unto the Lord, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness. 5  For his anger [1] endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

6  And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved. 7  Lord, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled. 8  I cried to thee, O Lord; and unto the Lord I made supplication. 9  What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth? 10  Hear, O Lord, and have mercy upon me: Lord, be thou my helper. 11  Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness; 12  To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.
