Psalm 30
King James BibleHolman Christian Standard Bible
1A Psalm and Song at the dedication of the house of David. I will extol thee, O LORD; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.1A psalm; a dedication song for the house. Davidic. I will exalt You, LORD, because You have lifted me up and have not allowed my enemies to triumph over me.
2O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.2 LORD my God, I cried to You for help, and You healed me.
3O 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 LORD, You brought me up from Sheol; You spared me from among those going down to the Pit.
4Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.4Sing to Yahweh, you His faithful ones, and praise His holy name.
5For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.5For His anger lasts only a moment, but His favor, a lifetime. Weeping may spend the night, but there is joy in the morning.
6And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.6When I was secure, I said," I will never be shaken."
7LORD, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled.7 LORD, when You showed Your favor, You made me stand like a strong mountain; when You hid Your face, I was terrified.
8I cried to thee, O LORD; and unto the LORD I made supplication.8 LORD, I called to You; I sought favor from my Lord:"
9What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth?9What gain is there in my death, if I go down to the Pit? Will the dust praise You? Will it proclaim Your truth?
10Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me: LORD, be thou my helper.10 LORD, listen and be gracious to me; LORD, be my helper."
11Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;11You turned my lament into dancing; You removed my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness,
12To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.12so that I can sing to You and not be silent. LORD my God, I will praise You forever.
