3 You, Lord, brought me up from the realm of the dead; you spared me from going down to the pit.
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.
3 O Lord, you have brought up my soul from Sheol; you restored me to life from among those who go down to the pit.
3 God, you pulled me out of the grave, gave me another chance at life when I was down-and-out.
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.
3 You brought me up from the grave, O Lord . You kept me from falling into the pit of death.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Psalm 30:3
Commentary on Psalm 30:1-5.
(Read Psalm 30:1-5.)
The great things the Lord has done for us, both by his providence and by his grace, bind us in gratitude to do all we can to advance his kingdom among men, though the most we can do is but little. God's saints in heaven sing to him; why should not those on earth do the same? Not one of all God's perfections carries in it more terror to the wicked, or more comfort to the godly, than his holiness. It is a good sign that we are in some measure partakers of his holiness, if we can heartily rejoice at the remembrance of it. Our happiness is bound up in the Divine favour; if we have that, we have enough, whatever else we want; but as long as God's anger continues, so long the saints' weeping continues.
