Thanksgiving for Deliverance from Death.

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

1 I will aextol You, O Lord, for You have blifted me up,

And have not let my cenemies rejoice over me.

2 O Lord my God,

I acried to You for help, and You bhealed me.

3 O Lord, You have abrought up my soul from 1Sheol;

You have kept me alive, 2that I would not bgo down to the pit.

4 aSing praise to the Lord, you bHis godly ones,

And cgive thanks to His holy 1dname.

5 For aHis anger is but for a moment,

His bfavor is for a lifetime;

Weeping may clast for the night,

But a shout of joy comes in the morning.

6 Now as for me, I said in my prosperity,

“I will anever be moved.”

7 O Lord, by Your favor You have made my mountain to stand strong;

You ahid 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 ago down to the pit?

Will the bdust praise You? Will it declare Your faithfulness?

10aHear, O Lord, and be gracious to me;

O Lord, be my bhelper.”

11 You have turned for me amy mourning into dancing;

You have bloosed my sackcloth and girded me with cgladness,

12 That my 1asoul may sing praise to You and not be silent.

O Lord my God, I will bgive thanks to You forever.


About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update

The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
