A psalm; a dedication song for the house. Of David.
because you have lifted me upab
and have not allowed my enemies
to triumph over me.ac
I cried to you for help, and you healed me.ad
3 Lord, you brought me up from Sheol;ae
and praise his holy name.b
but his favor, a lifetime.
Weeping may stay overnight,
but there is joy in the morning.c
“I will never be shaken.”d
you made me stand like a strong mountain;e
when you hid your face, I was terrified.f
I sought favor from my Lord:g
if I go down to the Pit?
Will the dust praise you?
Will it proclaim your truth?h
Lord, be my helper.”i
you removed my sackcloth
and clothed me with gladness,j
Lord my God, I will praise you forever.k
