A melody. A song of inauguration of the house. Of David.
30 I will exalt you, O Jehovah, for you have lifted* me up;
You did not let my enemies rejoice over me.+
2 O Jehovah my God, I cried to you for help, and you healed me.+
3 O Jehovah, you have lifted me* up from the Grave.*+
You kept me alive; you spared me from sinking into the pit.*+
4 Sing praises* to Jehovah, you his loyal ones,+
Give thanks to his holy name;*+
5 Because being under his anger is only for a moment,+
But being in his favor* is for a lifetime.+
Weeping may come in the evening, but in the morning, there is a joyful cry.+
6 When I was untroubled, I said:
“I will never be shaken.”*
7 O Jehovah, while I was in your favor,* you made me as strong as a mountain.+
But when you hid your face, I became terrified.+
8 To you, O Jehovah, I kept calling;+
And to Jehovah, I kept pleading for favor.
9 What profit is there in my death,* in my going down to the pit?*+
Will the dust praise you?+ Will it tell of your faithfulness?+
10 Hear, O Jehovah, and show me favor.+
O Jehovah, become my helper.+
11 You have changed my mourning into dancing;
You have removed my sackcloth, and you clothe me with rejoicing,
12 So that I* may sing your praise and not keep silent.
O Jehovah my God, I will praise you forever.
