1 I will extol thee, O LORD; for thou hast lifted me up and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me. 2 O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me. 3 O LORD, thou hast brought up my soul from Sheol; thou gavest me life from my descent into the grave.
4 Let his merciful ones sing unto the LORD, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness. 5 For his anger endures but a moment; in his will is life; weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. 6 And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved. 7 LORD, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong; thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled. 8 I will cry unto thee, O GOD; and unto the Lord will I make supplication. 9 What profit is there in my blood when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee? Shall it declare thy truth? 10 Hear, O LORD and have mercy upon me: LORD, be thou my helper.
