A Song of the Ascents. 130  From the depths I call to you, O Jehovah.+ 2   O Jehovah, hear my voice. May your ears pay attention to my pleas for help. 3   If errors were what you watch,* O Jah,*
Then who, O Jehovah, could stand?+
4   For with you there is true forgiveness,+ So that you may be held in awe.*+ 5   I hope in Jehovah, my whole being* hopes in him;
I wait for his word.
6   I eagerly wait* for Jehovah,+ More than watchmen wait for the morning,+ Yes, more than watchmen wait for the morning. 7   Let Israel keep waiting for Jehovah,
For Jehovah is loyal in his love,+ And he has great power to redeem.
8   He will redeem Israel from all their errors.
