King James Version



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.

 O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.

 O LORD, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive,
that I should not go down to the pit.

4 Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

 For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night,
but joy cometh
in the morning.

 And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.

 LORD, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face,
I was troubled.

 I cried to thee, O LORD; and unto the LORD I made supplication.

 What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee?
Shall it declare thy truth?

 Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me: LORD, be thou my helper.

Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth,
and girded me with gladness;

Psa 30:12 To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God,
 I will give thanks unto thee for ever.
