Discover Psalm 30 Commentary in detail, with their Bible study and explained, as well as their meaning in the Catholic Bible among others.
I will glorify you, O Lord, because you have exalted me,
and have not let my enemies rejoice in me.
O Lord my God,
I cried to you, and you healed me.
O Lord, You have brought up my soul from Sheol;
You gave me life so that I would not descend into the pit.
Sing to the Lord, you His saints,
and give thanks for the memory of His holiness.
For for a moment his fury will be;
but in his favor is life.
Crying will last at night,
and joy will come in the morning.
And I said in my prosperity:
I will never be moved.
You, O Lord, by your favor
have established my mountain with power.
You hid your face; I was disturbed.
To you, O Lord, will I cry;
and I will plead with the Lord.
What profit is there in my death
when I go down to the grave?
Will the dust praise you? Will it announce your truth?
Hear, O Lord, and have mercy on me;
Jehovah, be my helper.
You have turned my lament into dance;
you untied my sackcloth and girded me with joy,
so that glory may sing to you and not be silent.
O Jehovah my God, I will praise you forever.
Psalm 30 Meaning
The meaning of Psalm 30 is very interesting, it tells us about the altar that David builds on Mount Moria (where Jerusalem is now) and that altar that David builds is to thank God for the salvation he placed on his people. The main motive is to be grateful without pleading what God has been for him and for his people.
