Psalms 30:11

You have turned for me my mourning into dancing: you have put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;
Read Chapter 30

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
12. "Thou hast turned My mourning into joy to Me" (ver. 11). Whom I, the Church, having received, the First-Begotten from the dead, now in the dedication of Thine house, say, "Thou hast turned my mourning into joy to me. Thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness." Thou hast torn off the veil of my sins, the sadness of my mortality; and hast girded me with the first robe, with immortal gladness.

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Joy. When thou orderest the angel, 2 Kings xxiv. 16. (Calmet) Sackcloth, of human nature, which was cut, and the price of our redemption came forth. (St. Augustine; St. Jerome) Thou hast changed my mourning weeds for robes of joy. (Du Hamel)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
