Psalm of David
1 I will praise and exalt You, O Jehovah, for you 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 brought me up from the grave. You kept me alive, that I would not go down to the pit.
4 Sing praise to Jehovah, you his godly ones, and give thanks to his holy name.
5 For His anger is only for a moment. His favor is for a lifetime! Weeping may last for the night but a shout of joy comes in the morning.
6 Now as for me, I said in my prosperity: »I will never be shaken.«
7 By your favor, O Jehovah, you made my mountain to stand strong. You hid your face and I was alarmed dismayed.
8 To You, O Jehovah, I called. To Jehovah I made supplication:
9 What profit is there in my blood, if I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise you? Will it declare your truth?
10 Hear, O Jehovah, and be gracious to me. O Jehovah help me.
11 You turned my mourning into dancing. You loosed my sackcloth and girded me with gladness.
12 Now I sing praise to you. I am not silent! O Jehovah my God, I will give thanks and praise you forever.
