Psalms Chapter 30 - New International Version

1. Psalm 30 A psalm. A song. For the dedication of the temple. [1] Of David.

1. I will exalt you, O LORD, for you lifted me out of the depths and did not let my enemies gloat over me.

2. O LORD my God, I called to you for help and you healed me.

3. O LORD, you brought me up from the grave [2] ; you spared me from going down into the pit.

4. Sing to the LORD, you saints of his; praise his holy name.

5. For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.

6. When I felt secure, I said, "I will never be shaken."

7. O LORD, when you favored me, you made my mountain [3] stand firm; but when you hid your face, I was dismayed.

8. To you, O LORD, I called; to the Lord I cried for mercy:

9. "What gain is there in my destruction, [4] in my going down into the pit? Will the dust praise you? Will it proclaim your faithfulness?

10. Hear, O LORD, and be merciful to me; O LORD, be my help."

11. You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,

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