Tehillim / Psalms 30, Part 1, I Dedicate my Life to You Lord

671

This week’s study is from Tehillim / Psalms 30:1-12, the opening verse says א  מִזְמוֹר שִׁיר חֲנֻכַּת הַבַּיִת לְדָוִד: A Psalm; a Song at the Dedication of the House. A Psalm of David.  Did David write songs to be sung at the dedication of the Temple that Solomon would build for the Lord?  In David’s song he says ב  אֲרוֹמִמְךָ יְהֹוָה כִּי דִלִּיתָנִי וְלֹא-שִֹמַּחְתָּ אֹיְבַי לִי:  30:1 I will extol You, O Lord, for You have lifted me up, And have not let my enemies rejoice over me. (NASB)  His rejoicing before the Lord is because ג  יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהָי שִׁוַּעְתִּי אֵלֶיךָ וַתִּרְפָּאֵנִי:  30:2 O Lord my God, I cried to You for help, and You healed me. (NASB)  The Lord saved David from the pit, from the grave and kept him alive (ד  יְהוָה הֶעֱלִיתָ מִן-שְׁאוֹל נַפְשִׁי חִיִּיתַנִי מִיָּורְדִי- [מִיָּרְדִי] בוֹר: , 30:3 O Lord, You have brought up my soul from Sheol; You have kept me alive, that I would not go down to the pit. NASB ) David says we are to praise the Lord because of His mercy ה  זַמְּרוּ לַיהֹוָה חֲסִידָיו וְהוֹדוּ לְזֵכֶר קָדְשׁוֹ: ו  כִּי רֶגַע בְּאַפּוֹ חַיִּים בִּרְצוֹנוֹ בָּעֶרֶב יָלִין בֶּכִי וְלַבֹּקֶר רִנָּה: 30:4 Sing praise to the Lord, you His godly ones, And give thanks to His holy name. 30:5 For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for a lifetime; Weeping may last for the night, But a shout of joy comes in the morning.
