Bible: Psalm 30
Psalm 30 1
30:1 A psalm – a song used at the dedication of the temple; 2 by David.
I will praise you, O
and did not allow my enemies to gloat 4 over me.
I cried out to you and you healed me. 5
you rescued me from among those descending into the grave. 7
30:4 Sing to the
give thanks to his holy name. 9
30:5 For his anger lasts only a brief moment,
and his good favor restores one’s life. 10
One may experience sorrow during the night,
but joy arrives in the morning. 11
30:6 In my self-confidence I said,
“I will never be upended.” 12
Then you rejected me 14 and I was terrified.
30:8 To you, O
I begged the Lord for mercy: 15
in my descending into the Pit? 18
Can the dust of the grave 19 praise you?
Can it declare your loyalty? 20
30:10 Hear, O
30:11 Then you turned my lament into dancing;
you removed my sackcloth and covered me with joy. 22
