1I will exalt Thee, Hashem, for Thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to gloat over me. 2[3] Hashem Elohai, I cried unto Thee, and Thou hast healed me. 3[4] Hashem, Thou hast brought up my nefesh from Sheol; Thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit. 4[5] Sing unto Hashem, O ye chasidim of His, and give thanks to His Zekher Kodesh. 5[6] For His anger endureth but a rega; in His favor is Chayyim; weeping may endure for an erev, but joy cometh in the boker. 6[7] And in my shalvah (security) I said, I shall never be moved. 7[8] Hashem, by Thy favor Thou hast made my mountain to stand firm; Thou didst hide Thy face, and I was troubled. 8[9] I cried to Thee, Hashem; and unto Adonoi I made supplication. 9[10] What profit is there in my dahm, in my going down into the pit? Shall the aphar (dust) praise Thee? Shall it declare Thy emes? 10[11] Shema, Hashem, and channeini; Hashem, be Thou my helper. 11[12] Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing; Thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with simcha; 12[13] That kavod (my glory, my soul) may sing praise to Thee, and not be silent. Hashem Elohai, I will give thanks unto Thee l'olam.
