Psalm 30 New American Standard Bible

Thanksgiving for Deliverance from Death

30 I will extol You, O Lord , for You have lifted me up, And have not let my enemies rejoice over me. 2  O Lord my God , I cried to You for help , and You healed me. 3  O Lord , You have brought up my soul from Sheol ; You have kept me alive , that I would not go down to the pit . 4  Sing praise to the Lord , you His godly ones , And give thanks to His holy name . 5  For 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 .

6  Now as for me, I said in my prosperity , "I will never e be moved ." 7  O Lord , by Your favor You have made my mountain to stand strong ; You hid Your face , I was dismayed . 8  To 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 ." 11  You have turned for me my mourning into dancing ; You have loosed my sackcloth and girded me with gladness , 12  That my soul may sing praise to You and not be silent . O Lord my God , I will give thanks to You forever .
