You who have shown us great distresses and evil things,
you will return,
you will revive us, you will bring me up again
from the depths of the earth. Bible

“you will bring me up again from the depths of the earth.” The Psalmist believed in the resurrection from the dead and everlasting life. The Old Testament has a number of verses about God raising the dead in the future (cp. Deut. 32:39; Job. 19:25-27; Ps. 71:20; Isa. 26:19; 66:14; Ezek. 37:12-14; Dan. 12:2, 13; and Hos. 13:14).
