130:1 A Song of Ascents. Out of the depths have I called Thee, O the Lord.

130:2 L-rd, hearken unto my voice; let Thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications.

130:3 If Thou, the Lord, shouldest mark iniquities, O L-rd, who could stand?

130:4 For with Thee there is forgiveness, that Thou mayest be feared.

130:5 I wait for the Lord, my soul doth wait, and in His word do I hope.

130:6 My soul waiteth for the L-rd, more than watchmen for the morning; yea, more than watchmen for the morning.

130:7 O Israel, hope in the Lord; for with the Lord there is mercy, and with Him is plenteous redemption.

130:8 And He will redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
