Psalm 30

English Standard Version

1 A Psalm of David. A song at the dedication of the temple. I will extol you, O Lord, for you have drawn me up and have not let my foes rejoice over me. (2Sa 5:11; 1Ch 22:1; Ps 13:4; Ps 25:2; Ps 35:19; Ps 35:24; Ps 107:32) 2 O Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you have healed me. (Ps 6:2; Ps 88:13) 3 O Lord, you have brought up my soul from Sheol; you restored me to life from among those who go down to the pit.[1] (Ps 16:10; Ps 28:1) 4 Sing praises to the Lord, O you his saints, and give thanks to his holy name.[2] (1Ch 16:4; Ps 50:5; Ps 97:12) 5 For his anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime.[3] Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning. (Job 33:26; Ps 63:3; Ps 103:9; Ps 126:5; Isa 26:20; Isa 54:7; 2Co 4:17) 6 As for me, I said in my prosperity, “I shall never be moved.” (Job 29:18; Ps 10:6; Pr 1:32) 7 By your favor, O Lord, you made my mountain stand strong; you hid your face; I was dismayed. (De 31:17; 2Sa 5:9; 2Sa 24:10; Ps 104:29) 8 To you, O Lord, I cry, and to the Lord I plead for mercy: (Ps 142:1) 9 “What profit is there in my death,[4] if I go down to the pit?[5] Will the dust praise you? Will it tell of your faithfulness? (Ps 6:5) 10 Hear, O Lord, and be merciful to me! O Lord, be my helper!” (Ps 27:7) 11 You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; you have loosed my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, (Ex 15:20; 2Sa 6:14; Ps 149:3; Ps 150:4; Jer 31:4; Jer 31:13; La 5:15) 12 that my glory may sing your praise and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever! (Ps 16:9)

Psalm 30

New International Version

1 I will exalt you, Lord, for you lifted me out of the depths and did not let my enemies gloat over me. 2 Lord my God, I called to you for help, and you healed me. 3 You, Lord, brought me up from the realm of the dead; you spared me from going down to the pit. 4 Sing the praises of the Lord, you his faithful people; praise his holy name. 5 For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning. 6 When I felt secure, I said, “I will never be shaken.” 7 Lord, when you favored me, you made my royal mountain[1] stand firm; but when you hid your face, I was dismayed. 8 To you, Lord, I called; to the Lord I cried for mercy: 9 “What is gained if I am silenced, if I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise you? Will it proclaim your faithfulness? 10 Hear, Lord, and be merciful to me; Lord, be my help.” 11 You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, 12 that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent. Lord my God, I will praise you forever.

Psalm 30

King James Version

1 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. 2 O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me. 3 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. 5 For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. 6 And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved. 7 LORD, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled. 8 I cried to thee, O LORD; and unto the LORD I made supplication. 9 What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth? 10 Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me: LORD, be thou my helper. 11 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness; 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.

Psalm 30

New Int. Readers Version

1 Lord, I will give you honor. You brought me out of deep trouble. You didn't give my enemies the joy of seeing me die. 2 Lord my God, I called out to you for help. And you healed me. 3 Lord, you brought me up from the edge of the grave. You kept me from going down into the pit. 4 Sing to the Lord, you who are faithful to him. Praise him, because his name is holy. 5 His anger lasts for only a moment. But his favor lasts for a person's whole life. Sobbing can remain through the night. But joy comes in the morning. 6 When I felt safe, I said, “I will always be secure.” 7 Lord, when you showed me your favor, you made my mountain stand firm. But when you turned your face away from me, I was terrified. 8 Lord, I called out to you. I cried to you for your favor. 9 I said, “What good will come if I die? What good will come if I go down into the grave? Can the dust of my dead body praise you? Can it tell how faithful you are? 10 Lord, hear me. Show me your favor. Lord, help me.” 11 You turned my loud crying into dancing. You removed my black clothes and dressed me with joy. 12 So my heart will sing to you. I can't keep silent. Lord, my God, I will give you thanks forever.
