The Book of Psalms
I will extol thee, O LORD; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not permitted my foes to rejoice over me.
2 O LORD my God, I cried unto thee for help, and thou hast healed me.
3 O LORD, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.
4 Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks to his holy name.
5 For his anger endureth but a moment; and his favour endoureth for a life time: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
6 And as for me, in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.
7 O LORD, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, and I was dismayed.
8 I cried to thee, O LORD; and unto the LORD I made supplication.
9 What profit is there in my death, if I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy faithfulness?
10 Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me: O LORD, be thou my helper.
11 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;
12 That my soul may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.
