Psalms 30:2 Meaning and Commentary

Psalms 30:2

O Lord my God, I cried unto thee
In the time of his distress and trouble; and whither should he go but unto his covenant God and Father?

and thou hast healed me:
either of some bodily disease that attended him; for the Lord is the physician of the body, as well as of the soul; and that either immediately, or by giving a blessing to means used; and the glory of such a mercy should be given to him: or else of soul diseases, which are natural and hereditary, epidemical, nauseous, mortal, and incurable, but by the grace of God and blood of Christ; and the healing: of them either respects the pardon of them at first conversion; for healing diseases, and forgiving iniquities, signify one and the same thing; or else fresh discoveries and applications of pardoning grace, after falls into sin, which are an healing backslidings, and restoring comforts; and this is God's work; none can heal but himself, and he does it effectually, universally, and freely, and which calls for thankfulness, ( Psalms 103:1-3 ) ; or this may be understood in a civil sense, of restoring him to his house, his throne and kingdom, and the peace of it.

Psalms 30:2 In-Context

1 Lord, I will give you honor. You brought me out of deep trouble. You didn't give my enemies the joy of seeing me die.
2 LORD my God, I called out to you for help. And you healed me.
3 Lord, you brought me up from the edge of the grave. You kept me from going down into the pit.
4 Sing to the Lord, you who are faithful to him. Praise him, because his name is holy.
5 His anger lasts for only a moment. But his favor lasts for a person's whole life. Sobbing can remain through the night. But joy comes in the morning.
