All of Psalms 30 for Context for 30/12
A psalm. A song. For the dedication of the temple. Of David.
1 I will exalt you, Lord,
for you lifted me out of the depths
and did not let my enemies gloat over me.
2 Lord my God, I called to you for help,
and you healed me.
3 You, Lord, brought me up from the realm of the dead;
you spared me from going down to the pit.
4 Sing the praises of the Lord, you his faithful people;
praise his holy name.
5 For his anger lasts only a moment,
but his favor lasts a lifetime;
weeping may stay for the night,
but rejoicing comes in the morning.
6 When I felt secure, I said,
“I will never be shaken.”
7 Lord, when you favored me,
you made my royal mountain[c] stand firm;
but when you hid your face,
I was dismayed.
8 To you, Lord, I called;
to the Lord I cried for mercy:
9 “What is gained if I am silenced,
if I go down to the pit?
Will the dust praise you?
Will it proclaim your faithfulness?
10 Hear, Lord, and be merciful to me;
Lord, be my help.”
11 You turned my wailing into dancing;
you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,
12 that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent.
Lord my God, I will praise you forever.
Breakdown of Psalms 30:12
This verse in Psalms is a great one to go to when looking to understand why we sing at church. Praising the Lord with our voices is a biblical way of praising God. We should desire that we are not silent about God, but we love him so much we can’t help but praise him. I often think of products we love. When we have an amazing experience, we want to tell as many people as possible. Jesus has provided us with an amazing experience that we call life. We have been given life through Jesus Christ when all we deserved is death.
Verse 30/12 of the Book of Psalms is all about being lifted out of a bad place. David wrote these Psalms, and he is overjoyed in them. In the previous verse, he talks about how God turned his tears into dancing, and then the next verse speaks on lifting his voice to the Lord.
