A Psalm and Song at the dedication of the House of David
1 I will exalt You, O Jehovah, for You have lifted me up, and have not allowed my foes
to rejoice over me.
2 O Jehovah my God, I cried out to You, and You have healed me.
3 O Jehovah, You have brought up my soul from Sheol; You have kept me alive, that I
should not go down to the Pit.
4 Make music unto Jehovah, O you saints of His, and give thanks at the remembrance of
5 For His anger is but for a moment; in His favor is life. Weeping may endure for a
night, but joy comes in the morning.
6 And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.
7 O Jehovah, by Your favor You have made my mountain to stand strong; You hid Your
face, and I was troubled.
8 I cried out to You, O Jehovah; and unto Jehovah I made supplication.
9 What profit is there in my blood, in going down to the pit? Will the dust praise You?
Will it declare Your truth?
10 Hear, O Jehovah, and have mercy upon me; Jehovah, be my helper!
11 You have turned my mourning into dancing for me; You have loosened my sackcloth,
and clothed me with gladness,
12 so that my glory may make music unto You, and not be silent. O Jehovah my God, I
will give thanks unto You forever.
