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.
