EJ2000(i) 1 A 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. 2 O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me. 3 O LORD, thou hast brought up my soul from Sheol; thou gavest me life from my descent into the grave. 4 Let his merciful ones sing unto the LORD, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness. 5 For his anger endures but a moment; in his will is life; weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. 6 ¶ And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved. 7 LORD, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong; thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled. 8 I will cry unto thee, O GOD; and unto the Lord will I make supplication. 9 What profit is there in my blood when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee? Shall it declare thy truth? 10 Hear, O LORD and have mercy upon me: LORD, be thou my helper. 11 Thou hast turned my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth and girded me with gladness; 12 to the end that I may sing glory unto thee and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.
