Psalm 30

Psalm 30:1. “I will exalt you, Lord, for you lifted me out of the depths and did not let my enemies gloat over me. 2. Lord my God, I called to you for help, and you healed me. 3. You, Lord, brought me up from the realm of the dead; you spared me from going down to the pit. 4. Sing the praises of the Lord, you his faithful people; praise his holy name. 5. For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning. 6. When I felt secure, I said, “I will never be shaken.” 7. Lord, when you favored me, you made my royal mountain stand firm; but when you hid your face, I was dismayed. 8. To you, Lord, I called; to the Lord I cried for mercy: 9. “What is gained if I am silenced, if I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise you? Will it proclaim your faithfulness? 10. Hear, Lord, and be merciful to me; 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 your praises and not be silent. Lord my God, I will praise you forever.”
