Psalm 130

My Soul Waits for the Lord

A Song of Ascents.

Out of c the depths I cry to you, O Lord!
2 O Lord, hear my voice!
d Let your ears be attentive
to e the voice of my pleas for mercy!

3 If you, O Lord, should f mark iniquities,
O Lord, who could g stand?
4 But with you there is h forgiveness,
i that you may be feared.

5 I j wait for the Lord, k my soul waits,
and l in his word I hope;
6 my soul m waits for the Lord
more than n watchmen for o the morning,
more than watchmen for the morning.

7 O Israel, p hope in the Lord!
For q with the Lord there is steadfast love,
and with him is plentiful redemption.
8 And he will r redeem Israel
from all his iniquities.
