Psalms 130

Psalm 1301

A song of ascents.2

130:1 From the deep water3 I cry out to you, O Lord.

130:2 O Lord, listen to me!4

Pay attention to5 my plea for mercy!

130:3 If you, O Lord, were to keep track of6 sins,

O Lord, who could stand before you?7

130:4 But8 you are willing to forgive,9

so that you might10 be honored.11

130:5 I rely on12 the Lord,

I rely on him with my whole being;13

I wait for his assuring word.14

130:6 I yearn for the Lord,15

more than watchmen do for the morning,

yes, more than watchmen do for the morning.16

130:7 O Israel, hope in the Lord,

for the Lord exhibits loyal love,17

and is more than willing to deliver.18

130:8 He will deliver19 Israel

from all the consequences of their sins.20
