Thanksgiving for Deliverance from Death.

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

1 I will extol You, O LORD, for You have lifted me up,  And have not let my enemies rejoice over me.
2 O LORD my God,  I cried to You for help, and You healed me.
3 O LORD, You have brought up my soul from Sheol;  You have kept me alive, that I would not go down to the pit.
4 Sing praise to the LORD, you His godly ones,  And give thanks to His holy name.
5 For His anger is but for a moment,  His favor is for a lifetime;  Weeping may last for the night,  But a shout of joy comes in the morning.
6 Now as for me, I said in my prosperity,  “I will never be moved.”
7 O LORD, by Your favor You have made my mountain to stand strong;  You hid Your face, I was dismayed.
8 To You, O LORD, I called,  And to the Lord I made supplication:
9 “What profit is there in my blood, if I go down to the pit?  Will the dust praise You? Will it declare Your faithfulness?
10 “Hear, O LORD, and be gracious to me;  O LORD, be my helper.”
11 You have turned for me my mourning into dancing;  You have loosed my sackcloth and girded me with gladness,
12 That my soul may sing praise to You and not be silent.  O LORD my God, I will give thanks to You forever.
