Psalms Chapter 30 - New American Standard Bible

1. IWILL 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 [2] Sheol; You have kept me alive, [1] 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 [3] 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 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 [4] soul may sing praise to You and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks to You forever.
