30:1 A Psalm; a Song at the Dedication of the House; of David.

30:2 I will extol thee, O the Lord, for Thou hast raised me up, and hast not suffered mine enemies to rejoice over me.

30:3 O the Lord my God, I cried unto Thee, and Thou didst heal me;

30:4 O the Lord, Thou broughtest up my soul from the nether-world; Thou didst kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.

30:5 Sing praise unto the Lord, O ye His godly ones, and give thanks to His holy name.

30:6 For His anger is but for a moment, His favour is for a life-time; weeping may tarry for the night, but joy cometh in the morning.

30:7 Now I had said in my security: 'I shall never be moved.'

30:8 Thou hadst established, O the Lord, in Thy favour my mountain as a stronghold--Thou didst hide Thy face; I was affrighted.

30:9 Unto Thee, O the Lord, did I call, and unto the Lord I made supplication:

30:10 'What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise Thee? shall it declare Thy truth?

30:11 Hear, O the Lord, and be gracious unto me; the Lord, be Thou my helper.'

30:12 Thou didst turn for me my mourning into dancing; Thou didst loose my sackcloth, and gird me with gladness;

30:13 So that my glory may sing praise to Thee, and not be silent; O the Lord my God, I will give thanks unto Thee for ever.
