The plea to Yahweh (Ps 30:8-30:10)

“To you!

Yahweh!

I cried!

To Yahweh!

I made supplication!

‘What profit is there in my death?

What good is it if I go down to the pit?

Will the dust praise you?

Will it tell of your faithfulness?

Hear!

Yahweh!

Be gracious to me!

Yahweh!

Be my helper!’”

David pleaded with Yahweh. He cried out to him. He made supplications. He said what good would come from his death. If he was dead in the pit or the underworld, would his dust praise Yahweh. Who would tell of the faithfulness of Yahweh? He wanted Yahweh to hear his prayer, be gracious to him, and be his helper.
