"Thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit" (Ps. 30:3)—The Hebrew term which is here literally rendered "pit" is the same as that which is translated "destruction" in Psalms 103:4, and it was used by the writers of the Old Testament period to denote the supposed subterranean abode of the departed, in much the same way that modern writers employ the phrases "the grave" or "the tomb."
"Sing unto the Lord" (Ps. 30:4)—Brown, Driver, and Briggs in their Hebrew Lexicon remind us that the verb is usually employed in the original in the sense of "to sing praises" to God. Hence the Revised Version and Moffatt have: "Sing praise"; and Smith: "Sing praises."
