Sadness has turned to joy (Ps 30:11-30:12)

“You have turned my mourning into dancing!

You have taken off my sackcloth!

You clothed me with joy!

Thus my soul may praise you!

My soul will not be silent!

Yahweh!

My God!

I will give thanks to you forever!”

This psalm ends with the sadness of David turning into joy. His mourning has become dancing. He has put away his mourning sackcloth. He has put on joyful clothes. His soul can now praise God and not be silent. He was going to give thanks to Yahweh, his God, forever. It was a time for great rejoicing.
