A Psalm; a Song at the Dedication of the House. A Psalm of David.

1I will extol thee, O Jehovah; for thou hast raised me up,

And hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.

2O Jehovah my God,

I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.

3O Jehovah, thou hast brought up my soul from Sheol;

Thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.

4Sing praise unto Jehovah, O ye saints of his,

And give thanks to his holy memorial name.

5For his anger is but for a moment;

His favor is for a life-time:

Weeping may tarry for the night,

But joy cometh in the morning.

6As for me, I said in my prosperity,

I shall never be moved.

7Thou, Jehovah, of thy favor hadst made my mountain to stand strong:

Thou didst hide thy face; I was troubled.

8I cried to thee, O Jehovah;

And unto Jehovah I made supplication:

9What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit?

Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth?

10Hear, O Jehovah, and have mercy upon me:

Jehovah, be thou my helper.

11Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing;

Thou hast loosed my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;

12To 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.
