Psalm 30 New King James Version

Thanksgiving for Deliverance from Death

30 A Psalm. A Song at the dedication of the house of David. I will extol You, O Lord, for You have lifted me up, And have not let my foes rejoice over me. 2  O Lord my God, I cried out to You, And You healed me. 3  O Lord, You brought my soul up from the grave; You have kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit. 4  Sing praise to the Lord, You saints of His, And give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name. 5  For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning.

6  Now in my prosperity I said, "I shall never be moved." 7  Lord, by Your favor You have made my mountain stand strong; You hid Your face, and I was troubled. 8  I cried out to You, O Lord; And to the Lord I made supplication: 9  "What profit is there in my blood, When I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise You? Will it declare Your truth? 10  Hear, O Lord, and have mercy on me; Lord, be my helper!" 11  You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, 12  To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.
