A Psalm; a Song at the Dedication of the House. A Psalm of David.
I will extol thee, O Yahweh; for thou hast raised me up, And hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.
O Yahweh my Elohim, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.
O Yahweh, thou hast brought up my soul from Sheol; Thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.
Sing praise unto Yahweh, O ye saints of his, And give thanks to his holy memorial name.
For 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.
As for me, I said in my prosperity, I shall never be moved.
Thou, Yahweh, of thy favor hadst made my mountain to stand strong: Thou didst hide thy face; I was troubled.
I cried to thee, O Yahweh; And unto Yahweh I made supplication:
What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth?
Hear, O Yahweh, and have mercy upon me: Yahweh, be thou my helper.
Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing; Thou hast loosed my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;
To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O Yahweh my Elohim, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.
