|Thanksgiving for Deliverance from Death|
|A Psalm; a Song at the Dedication of the House. A Psalm of David.|
| ||I WILL extol thee, O Jehovah; for thou hast raised 1 me up,|
And hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.
| ||O Jehovah my God,|
I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.
| ||O Jehovah, thou hast brought up my soul from Sheol;|
Thou hast kept me alive, that 2 I should not go down to the pit.
| ||Sing praise unto Jehovah, O ye saints of his,|
And give thanks to his holy memorial name.
| ||For his anger is but for a moment;|
His 3 favor is for a life-time:
Weeping may 4 tarry for the night,
But joy cometh in the morning.
| ||As for me, I said in my prosperity,|
I shall never be moved.
| ||Thou, Jehovah, of thy favor hadst made my mountain to stand strong:|
Thou didst hide thy face; I was troubled.
| ||I cried to thee, O Jehovah;|
And unto Jehovah I made supplication:
| ||What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit?|
Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth?
| ||Hear, O Jehovah, and have mercy upon me:|
Jehovah, be thou my helper.
| ||Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing;|
Thou hast loosed my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;
| ||To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent.|
O Jehovah my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.
