New King James Version (NKJV)
The Blessedness of Answered Prayer
A Psalm. A Song at the dedication of the house of David.
3 0 I will extol You, O Lord, for You have lifted me up, And have not let my foes rejoice over me.
2 O Lord my God, I cried out to You, And You healed me.
3 O Lord, You brought my soul up from the grave; You have kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.
4 Sing praise to the Lord, you saints of His, And give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name
5 For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning.
6 Now in my prosperity I said, “I shall never be moved.”
7 Lord, by Your favor You have made my mountain stand strong; You hid Your face, and I was troubled.
8 I cried out to You, O Lord; And to the Lord I made supplication:
9 “What profit is there in my blood, When I go down to the pit?
Will the dust praise You? Will it declare Your truth?
10 Hear, O Lord, and have mercy on me; Lord, be my helper!”
