Psalm 30
King James BibleInternational Standard Version
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.1I exalt you, LORD, for you have lifted me up, and my enemies could not gloat over me.
2O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.2LORD, my God! I cried out 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.3LORD, you brought me from death; you kept me alive so that I did not descend into the Pit.
4Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.4You, his godly ones, sing to the LORD, give thanks at the mention of his holiness.
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 wrath is only momentary; yet his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may lodge for the night, but shouts of joy will come in the morning.
6And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.6As for me, I said in my prosperity, "I will never be moved."
7LORD, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled.7By your favor, LORD, you established me as a strong mountain; Then you hid your face, and I was dismayed.
8I cried to thee, O LORD; and unto the LORD I made supplication.8I cried out to you, LORD, and I make supplication to the 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?9"What profit is there in my death if I go down to the Pit? Can dust worship you? Can it proclaim your faithfulness?"
10Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me: LORD, be thou my helper.10Hear me, LORD, and have mercy on me! LORD, help me!
11Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;11You have turned my mourning into dancing; you took off my sackcloth and clothed me with a garment of joy,
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 may sing praise to you and not remain silent. LORD, my God, I will give you thanks forever!
