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.
