Psalms 30

MSTC(i) 1 {A Psalm and song of the dedication of the house of David} I will magnify thee, O LORD; for thou hast set me up, and not suffered my foes to triumph over me. 2 O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me. 3 Thou, LORD, hast brought my soul out of hell: thou hast kept my life from them that go down to the pit. 4 Sing praises unto the LORD, O ye saints of his; and give thanks unto him for a remembrance of his holiness. 5 For his wrath endureth but the twinkling of an eye, and in his pleasure is life; heaviness may well endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. 6 And in my prosperity I said, "I shall never be removed." And why? Thou, LORD, of thy goodness, hast made my hill so strong. 7 But as soon as thou didst turn thy face from me, I was troubled. 8 Then cried I unto thee, O LORD, and got me to my LORD right humbly. 9 What profit is there in my blood, when I go down into the pit? Shall the dust give thanks unto thee? Or shall it declare thy truth? 10 Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me. LORD, be thou my helper. 11 Thou hast turned my heaviness into joy; thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness. 12 Therefore shall every good man sing of thy praise without ceasing. O my God, I will give thanks unto thee forever.
