Tehillim (Psalms) 30
1I exalt You, O יהוה, for You have drawn me up, And have not let my enemies rejoice over me.
2יהוה my Elohim, I have cried to You, And You have healed me.
3יהוה, You brought me up from She’ol; You have kept me alive, from going down into the pit.
4Sing praise to יהוה, You lovingly-committed ones of His, And give thanks at the remembrance of His Set-apartness.
5For His displeasure is for a moment, His delight is for life; Weeping might last for the night, But joy comes in the morning.
6As for me, I have said in my ease, “Never would I be shaken!”
7יהוה, in Your good pleasure You have made my mountain to stand strong; You hid Your face, and I was troubled.
8I cried out to You, O יהוה; And to יהוה I prayed:
9“What gain is there in my blood, When I go down to the pit? Would dust praise You? Would it declare Your truth?
10“Hear, O יהוה, and show me favour; יהוה, be my helper!”
11You have turned my mourning into dancing for me; You have torn off my sackcloth and girded me with gladness,
12So that esteem might praise You and not be silent. O יהוה my Elohim, I thank You forever.
