except for verse 1 (the title of the psalm) which follows the translation of
« New International Version (NIV) » )

  1. A psalm. A song. For the dedication of the temple. Of David.
  2. I will exalt You, O Lord, for You have raised me up, and You have not allowed my enemies to rejoice over me.
  3. O Lord, I have cried out to You, and You have healed me.
  4. O Lord, You have brought my soul from the grave; You have revived me from my descent into the Pit.
  5. Sing to the Lord, His pious ones, and give thanks to His holy name.
  6. For His wrath lasts but a moment; life results from His favor; in the evening, weeping may tarry, but in the morning there is joyful singing.
  7. And I said in my tranquility, « I will never falter. »
  8. O Lord, with Your will, You set up my mountain to be might, You hid Your countenance and I became frightened.
  9. To You, O Lord, I would call, and to the Lord I would supplicate.
  10. « What gain is there in my blood, in my descent to the grave? Will dust thank You; will it recite Your truth?
  11. Hear, O Lord, and be gracious to me; O Lord, be my helper. »
  12. You have turned my lament into dancing for me; You loosened my sackcloth and girded me with joy.
  13. So that my soul will sing praises to You and not be silent. O Lord, my God, I will thank You forever.
