1 Chanting a song of consecration of the house of David. I will exalt thee, O Jehovah, for thou didst draw me out, and thou didst not gladden mine enemies to me. 2 O Jehovah my God, I cried to thee, and thou wilt heal me. 3 O Jehovah, thou broughtest up my soul from hades: thou didst save me alive from those going down to the pit
4 Play on the harp to Jehovah, ye his godly ones, and praise at the remembrance of his holiness. 5 For a moment in his anger; life in his acceptance: weeping shall lodge in the evening, and rejoicing for the morning. 6 And I said in my security, I shall not be moved forever. 7 O Jehovah, in thy good will thou didst cause strength to stand for my mountain: thou didst cover thy face, I was in trepidation. 8 To thee, O Jehovah, will I call, and to Jehovah will I make supplication. 9 What the profit in my blood in my going down to the pit? shall the dust praise thee? shall it announce thy truth? 10 Hear, O Jehovah, and pity me: O Jehovah, be a helper to me.
11 Thou didst turn my wailing to dancing to me: thou didst loose my sackcloth, and thou wilt gird me with gladness; 12 So that glory shall play on the harp to thee, and shall not be silent O Jehovah my God, I will praise thee forever.
