Thanksgiving for Deliverance from Death.
A Psalm; a Song at the Dedication of the House (Temple). A Psalm of David.
1 I will extol and praise You, O Lord, for You have lifted me up,
And have not let my enemies rejoice over me.
2 O Lord my God,
I cried to You for help, and You have healed me.
3 O Lord, You have brought my life up from Sheol (the nether world, the place of the dead);
You have kept me alive, so that I would not go down to the pit (grave).
4 Sing to the Lord, O you His godly ones,
And give thanks at the mention of His holy name.
5 For His anger is but for a moment,
#Or in His favor is life.His favor is for a lifetime.
Weeping may endure for a night,
But a shout of joy comes in the morning.
6 As for me, in my prosperity I said,
“I shall never be moved.”
7 By Your favor and grace, O Lord, you have made my mountain stand strong;
You hid Your face, and I was horrified.
8 I called to You, O Lord,
And to the Lord I made supplication (specific request).
9 “What profit is there in my blood (death), if I go down to the pit (grave)?
Will the dust praise You? Will it declare Your faithfulness [to man]?
10 “Hear, O Lord, be gracious and show favor to me;
O Lord, be my helper.”
11 You have turned my mourning into dancing for me;
You have taken off my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,
12 That my soul may sing praise to You and not be silent.
O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.
