Psalm 29 (Mid-hour of Third Hour)
(Psalm 30 – Hebrew Numbering)
I will exalt Thee, O Lord, for Thou hast upheld me, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.
O Lord my God, I cried unto Thee, and Thou hast healed me.
O Lord, Thou hast brought up my soul out of hades; Thou hast saved me from them that go down into the pit.
Chant unto the Lord, O ye saints of His, and give thanks at the remembrance of His holiness.
For wrath is in His anger, but in His will there is life; at evening shall weeping find lodging, but in the morning rejoicing.
And I said in my prosperity: I shall remain unshaken for ever.
O Lord, by Thy will hast Thou granted power to my beauty, but Thou hast turned away Thy face, and I am become troubled.
Unto Thee, O Lord, will I cry, and unto my God will I make supplication.
What profit is there in my blood when I go down into corruption?
Shall dust confess Thee, or declare Thy truth?
The Lord hath heard me and hath had mercy on me; the Lord became my helper.
Thou hast turned my mourning into joy for me, Thou didst rend my sackcloth and didst gird me with gladness, That my glory may chant unto Thee, and that I may not be pierced with sorrow; O Lord my God, I will confess Thee for ever.
