1A 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)2O Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you have healed me. (Ps 6:2; Ps 88:13)3O Lord, you have brought up my soul from Sheol; you restored me to life from among those who go down to the pit. (Ps 16:10; Ps 28:1)4Sing praises to the Lord, O you his saints, and give thanks to his holy name. (1Ch 16:4; Ps 50:5; Ps 97:12)5For his anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime. 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)6As for me, I said in my prosperity, “I shall never be moved.” (Job 29:18; Ps 10:6; Pr 1:32)7By 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)8To you, O Lord, I cry, and to the Lord I plead for mercy: (Ps 142:1)9“What profit is there in my death, if I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise you? Will it tell of your faithfulness? (Ps 6:5)10Hear, O Lord, and be merciful to me! O Lord, be my helper!” (Ps 27:7)11You 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)12that my glory may sing your praise and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever! (Ps 16:9)
New International Version
A psalm. A song. For the dedication of the temple. Of David.
1I will exalt you, Lord, for you lifted me out of the depths and did not let my enemies gloat over me.2Lord my God, I called to you for help, and you healed me.3You, Lord, brought me up from the realm of the dead; you spared me from going down to the pit.4Sing the praises of the Lord, you his faithful people; praise his holy name.5For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favour lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.6When I felt secure, I said, ‘I shall never be shaken.’7Lord, when you favoured me, you made my royal mountain stand firm; but when you hid your face, I was dismayed.8To 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?10Hear, Lord, and be merciful to me; Lord, be my help.’11You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,12that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent. Lord my God, I will praise you for ever.
King James Version
1A 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.2O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.3O LORD, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.4Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.5For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.6And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.7LORD, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled.8I cried to thee, O LORD; and unto the LORD I made supplication.9What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth?10Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me: LORD, be thou my helper.11Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;12To 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.
New International Reader’s Version
A psalm of David. A song for setting apart the completed temple to God.
1LORD, I will give you honour. You brought me out of deep trouble. You didn’t give my enemies the joy of seeing me die.2LORD my God, I called out to you for help. And you healed me.3LORD, you brought me up from the place of the dead. You kept me from going down into the pit.4Sing the praises of the LORD, you who are faithful to him. Praise him, because his name is holy.5His anger lasts for only a moment. But his favour lasts for a person’s whole life. Weeping can stay for the night. But joy comes in the morning.6When I felt safe, I said, ‘I will always be secure.’7LORD, when you gave me your help, you made Mount Zion stand firm. But when you took away your help, I was terrified.8LORD, I called out to you. I cried to you for mercy.9I said, ‘What good will come if I become silent in death? 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?10LORD, hear me. Have mercy on me. LORD, help me.’11You turned my loud crying into dancing. You removed my clothes of sadness and dressed me with joy.12So my heart will sing your praises. I can’t keep silent. LORD, my God, I will praise you for ever.
