A melody. A song of inauguration of the house.+ Of David. 30 I shall exalt you, O Jehovah,* for you have drawn me up+And you have not let my enemies rejoice over me.+ 2 O Jehovah* my God, I cried to you for help, and you proceeded to heal me.+ 3 O Jehovah, you have brought up my soul from Sheʹol* itself;+You have kept me alive, that I should not go down into the pit.+ 4 Make melody to Jehovah,* O YOU loyal ones of his,+Give thanks to his holy memorial;*+ 5 Because being under his anger is for a moment,+Being under his goodwill is for a lifetime.+In the evening weeping may take up lodging,+ but in the morning there is a joyful cry.+ 6 As for me, I have said in my ease:+“Never shall I be made to totter.”+ 7 O Jehovah,* in your goodwill you have made my mountain to stand in strength.+You concealed your face; I became one that is disturbed.+ 8 To you, O Jehovah,* I kept calling;+And to Jehovah* I kept making entreaty for favor.+ 9 What profit is there in my blood when I go down to the pit?*+Will the dust laud you?+ Will it tell of your trueness?*+ 10 Hear, O Jehovah,* and show me favor.+O Jehovah,* prove yourself my helper.+ 11 You have changed my mourning into dancing for me;+You have loosened my sackcloth, and you keep me girded with rejoicing,+ 12 In order that [my] glory* may make melody to you and not keep silent.+O Jehovah* my God, to time indefinite I will laud you.+
