Psalms 130:1-8

A Song of the Ascents. 130  Out of the depths I have called upon you, O Jehovah.+   O Jehovah,* do hear my voice.+ May your ears prove to be attentive to the voice of my entreaties.+   If errors were what you watch,+ O Jah,* O Jehovah,* who could stand?+   For there is the [true] forgiveness with you,+ In order that you may be feared.+   I have hoped, O Jehovah, my soul has hoped,+ And for his word I have waited.+   My soul [has waited] for Jehovah*+ More than watchmen for the morning,+ Watching for the morning.+   Let Israel keep waiting for Jehovah.+ For there is loving-kindness* with Jehovah,+ And abundantly so is there redemption with him.+   And he himself will redeem Israel out of all his errors.+
