Psalm 30 (NLT)

God, a rescuer:

1      I will exalt you, Lord, for you rescued me.

You refused to let my enemies triumph over me.

2      O Lord my God, I cried to you for help,

and you restored my health.

3      You brought me up from the grave, O Lord.

You kept me from falling into the pit of death.

4      Sing to the Lord, all you godly ones!

Praise his holy name.

5      For his anger lasts only a moment,

but his favor lasts a lifetime!

Weeping may last through the night,

but joy comes with the morning.

Times when pride sets in:

6      When I was prosperous, I said,

“Nothing can stop me now!”

7      Your favor, O Lord, made me as secure as a mountain. (with God)

Then you turned away from me, and I was shattered. (without God)

Repentance:

8      I cried out to you, O Lord.

I begged the Lord for mercy, saying,

9      “What will you gain if I die,

if I sink into the grave?

Can my dust praise you?

Can it tell of your faithfulness?

10    Hear me, Lord, and have mercy on me.

Help me, O Lord.

God hears with his mercy:

11    You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing.

You have taken away my clothes of mourning and clothed me with joy,

12    that I might sing praises to you and not be silent.

O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever!

even in times of pride, God rescues

Simply You Matter,
