Psalms 130:1-8

Psalm 130

A song of ascents.

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

130:2 O Lord, listen to me!

Pay attention to my plea for mercy!

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

O Lord, who could stand before you?

130:4 But you are willing to forgive,

so that you might be honored.

130:5 I rely on the Lord,

I rely on him with my whole being;

I wait for his assuring word.

130:6 I yearn for the Lord,

more than watchmen do for the morning,

yes, more than watchmen do for the morning.

130:7 O Israel, hope in the Lord,

for the Lord exhibits loyal love,

and is more than willing to deliver.

130:8 He will deliver Israel

from all the consequences of their sins.
