Psalm 30 :: New Living Translation (NLT)

I will exalt you, LORD, for you rescued me.
You refused to let my enemies triumph over me.

O LORD my God, I cried to you for help,
and you restored my health.

You brought me up from the grave,[fn] O LORD.
You kept me from falling into the pit of death.

Sing to the LORD, all you godly ones!
Praise his holy name.

For his anger lasts only a moment,
but his favor lasts a lifetime!
Weeping may last through the night,
but joy comes with the morning.

When I was prosperous, I said,
“Nothing can stop me now!”

Your favor, O LORD, made me as secure as a mountain.
Then you turned away from me, and I was shattered.

I cried out to you, O LORD.
I begged the Lord for mercy, saying,

“What will you gain if I die,
if I sink into the grave?
Can my dust praise you?
Can it tell of your faithfulness?

Hear me, LORD, and have mercy on me.
Help me, O LORD.”

You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing.
You have taken away my clothes of mourning and clothed me with joy,

that I might sing praises to you and not be silent.
O LORD my God, I will give you thanks forever!
