Psalms 30:8-12

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 30

8 To You, LORD, I called, And to the Lord I pleaded for compassion: 9 'What gain is there in my blood, if I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise You? Will it declare Your faithfulness? 10 'Hear, LORD, and be gracious to me; LORD, be my helper.' 11 You have turned my mourning into dancing for me; You have untied my sackcloth and encircled me with joy, 12 That my soul may sing praise to You and not be silent. LORD my God, I will give thanks to You forever.
King James Version

Chapter 30

8 I cried to thee, O LORD; and unto the LORD I made supplication. 9 What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth? 10 Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me: LORD, be thou my helper. 11 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness; 12 To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.

Chapter 30

8 Lord, I called to you; I sought favor from my Lord: 9 "What gain is there in my death, if I go down to the Pit? Will the dust praise you? Will it proclaim your truth?
10 Lord, listen and be gracious to me; Lord, be my helper." 11 You turned my lament into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, 12 so that I can sing to you and not be silent. Lord my God, I will praise you forever.

Chapter 30

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.'
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!
