Wesley's Explanatory Notes
Psalms 30

 

 

Verse 5

For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

Cometh — Speedily and in due season.


Verse 7

LORD, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled.

Mountain — My kingdom: kingdoms are usually called mountains in prophetical writings.


Verse 9

What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth?

Profit — What wilt thou gain by it? The dust - Shall they that are dead celebrate thy goodness in the land of the living? Or, shall my dust praise thee?


Verse 11

Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;

Sackcloth — Given me occasion to put off that sackcloth, which they used to wear in times of mourning, Esther 4:1; Psalm 35:13; Isaiah 32:11; Joel 1:13.

Girded — With joy, as with a garment, surrounding me on every side.


Verse 12

To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.

My glory — My tongue.
