1 A Psalm. -- A song of the dedication of the house of David. I exalt Thee, O Jehovah, For Thou hast drawn me up, and hast not let mine enemies rejoice over me. 2 Jehovah my God, I have cried to Thee, And Thou dost heal me. 3 Jehovah, Thou hast brought up from Sheol my soul, Thou hast kept me alive, From going down to the pit.
4 Sing praise to Jehovah, ye His saints, And give thanks at the remembrance of His holiness, 5 For -- a moment is in His anger, Life is in His good-will, At even remaineth weeping, and at morn singing. 6 And I -- I have said in mine ease, 'I am not moved -- to the age. 7 O Jehovah, in Thy good pleasure, Thou hast caused strength to remain for my mountain,' Thou hast hidden Thy face -- I have been troubled. 8 Unto Thee, O Jehovah, I call, And unto Jehovah I make supplication. 9 What gain is in my blood? In my going down unto corruption? Doth dust thank Thee? doth it declare Thy truth? 10 Hear, O Jehovah, and favour me, O Jehovah, be a helper to me.'
