A Psalm of David. A Song at the dedication of the temple.
1I will extol You, O Lord, for You have drawn me up,
and have not caused my foes to rejoice over me.
2#Ps 63:1; 84:2 O Lord my God, I cried to You,
and You healed me.
3#Ps 79:10; 80:5 O Lord, You have brought up my soul from the grave;
You have kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.
4#Isa 30:29; Ps 62:8 Sing to the Lord, O you saints of His,
and give thanks at the remembrance of His holiness.
5#Ps 42:11; 43:5 For His anger endures but a moment,
in His favor is life;
weeping may endure for a night,
but joy comes in the morning.
6#2Sa 17:22; Dt 3:8–9 In my prosperity I said,
“I will never be moved.”
7#Ps 88:7; Jnh 2:3 Lord, by Your favor
You had set me strong as a mountain;
You hid Your face,
and I was terrified.
8#Job 35:10; Ps 63:6 I cried to You, O Lord,
and to the Lord I made supplication:
9#Ps 38:6; 18:2 “What profit is there in my death,
if I go down to the pit?
Will the dust give You thanks?
Will it declare Your truth?
10#Ps 42:3; Joel 2:17 Hear, O Lord, and be gracious to me;
Lord, be my helper.”
11#Ps 42:5; 43:5 For You have turned my mourning into dancing;
You have put off my sackcloth and girded me with gladness,
12so that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent.
O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.
