1 A psalm. A song for the dedication of the house. By David: I will exalt you, ADONAI, because you drew me up; you didn't let my enemies rejoice over me. 1 I will exalt you, O LORD, for you lifted me out of the depths and did not let my enemies gloat over me.
2 ADONAI my God, I cried out to you, and you provided healing for me. 2 O LORD my God, I called to you for help and you healed me.
3 ADONAI, you lifted me up from Sh'ol; you kept me alive when I was sinking into a pit. 3 O LORD, you brought me up from the grave; you spared me from going down into the pit.
4 Sing praise to ADONAI, you faithful of his; and give thanks on recalling his holiness. 4 Sing to the LORD, you saints of his; praise his holy name.
5 For his anger is momentary, but his favor lasts a lifetime. Tears may linger for the night, but with dawn come cries of joy. 5 For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.
6 Once I was prosperous and used to say, that nothing could ever shake me 6 When I felt secure, I said, "I will never be shaken."
7 when you showed me favor, ADONAI, I was firm as a mighty mountain. But when you hid your face, I was struck with terror. 7 O LORD, when you favored me, you made my mountain stand firm; but when you hid your face, I was dismayed.
8 I called to you, ADONAI; to ADONAI I pleaded for mercy: 8 To you, O LORD, I called; to the Lord I cried for mercy:
9 "What advantage is there in my death, in my going down to the pit? Can the dust praise you? Can it proclaim your truth? 9 "What gain is there in my destruction, in my going down into the pit? Will the dust praise you? Will it proclaim your faithfulness?
10 Hear me, ADONAI, and show me your favor! ADONAI, be my helper!" 10 Hear, O LORD, and be merciful to me; O LORD, be my help."
11 You turned my mourning into dancing! You removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, 11 You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,
12 so that my well-being can praise you and not be silent; ADONAI my God, I will thank you forever! 12 that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give you thanks forever.
