Psalm 30:6-12

Psalm 30:6 When I was secure, I said, “I will not be shaken permanently.”

Psalm 30:7 Yahveh, when you showed your favor, you made me stand like a strong mountain; when you hid your face, I was terrified.

Psalm 30:8 Yahveh, I called to you; I sought favor from my master:

Psalm 30:9 “What gain would there be in my death, if I go down to the Pit? Will the dust praise you? Will it proclaim your truth?

Psalm 30:10 Yahveh, listen and be gracious to me; Yahveh , be my helper.”

Psalm 30:11 You turned my lament into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and decked me out with gladness,

Psalm 30:12 so that I can sing to you and not be silent. Yahveh my God, I will praise you permanently.1

lament interrupted

David went from arrogant self-confidence, to fearful lament. Fortunately he did not stay lamenting for long. He called to his God in prayer, seeking favor from his master. He appealed to God, admitting that if he were to die in this state, it would not accomplish God’s purposes. When the believer dies, there is no more praise and no more proclamation. He pleaded for God to be gracious to him – to be his helper.

God said Okay. He stopped lamenting, and started partying.

Lord, come and rescue us today. Interrupt our laments!
