Ps 30:1–3 — "O Yahweh!" A Cry of Personal Intensity

    1      I will extol You, O LORD, for You have lifted me up,
            And have not let my foes rejoice over me.
    2      O LORD my God, I cried out to You,
            And You healed me.
    3      O LORD, You brought my soul up from the grave;
            You have kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.
Ps 30:1–3

The triple "O Yahweh" is both intensely personal and personally intense. Personal, intense dealings with God are the right response of those whom God lifts up, and whom God allows to call Him our own, and whom God resurrects unto everlasting worship of Him. Indeed, personally and intensely is how He deals with us.
