Psalm 30

Psalm 30

A psalm of David. A song for the dedication of the Temple.

1 I will exalt you, Lord, for you rescued me. You refused to let my enemies triumph over me.

2 O Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you restored my health.

3 You brought me up from the grave, O Lord. You kept me from falling into the pit of death.

4 Sing to the Lord, all you godly ones! Praise his holy name.

5 For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime! Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning.

6 When I was prosperous, I said, “Nothing can stop me now!”

7 Your favor, O Lord, made me as secure as a mountain. Then you turned away from me, and I was shattered.

8 I cried out to you, O Lord. I begged the Lord for mercy, saying,

9 “What will you gain if I die, if I sink into the grave? Can my dust praise you? Can it tell of your faithfulness?

10 Hear me, Lord, and have mercy on me. Help me, O Lord.”

11 You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing. You have taken away my clothes of mourning and clothed me with joy,

12 that I might sing praises to you and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever!

Love, your servant Garrett
