Psalms 30

30:1 A Psalm [and] Song [at] the dedication of the a house of David. I will extol thee, O LORD; b for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.

(a) After Absalom had polluted it with most filthy fornication.
(b) He condemns them for great ingratitude who do not praise God for his benefits.
30:2 O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast c healed me.
(c) Restored from the rebellion of Absalom.
30:3 O LORD, thou hast brought up my d soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.
(d) Meaning, that he escaped death most narrowly.
30:4 Sing unto the LORD, O ye e saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
(e) The word signifies them who have received mercy, and show mercy liberally to others.
30:6 And in my g prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.

(g) I put too much confidence in my quiet state as in (Jeremiah 31:18; 2 Chronicles 32:24,25).
30:7 LORD, by thy favour thou hast made my h mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, [and] I i was troubled.
(h) I thought you had established me in Zion most surely.
(i) After you had withdrawn your help, I felt my misery.
30:9 What profit [is there] in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the k dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth?
(k) David means that the dead are not profitable to the congregation of the Lord here in the earth: therefore he would live to praise his Name, which is the end of mans creation.
30:12 To the end that [my] l glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.
(l) Because you have preserved me that my tongue should praise you, I will not be unmindful of my duty.
