1
{A Song of degrees.}
Out of the depths do I call upon thee, Jehovah.
2
Lord, hear my voice;
let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplication.
3
If thou, Jah, shouldest mark iniquities, Lord, who shall stand?
4
But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared.
5
I wait for Jehovah;
my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.
6
My soul [waiteth] for the Lord more than the watchers [wait] for the morning, [more than] the watchers for the morning.
7
Let Israel hope in Jehovah, because with Jehovah there is loving-kindness, and with him is plenteous redemption;
8
And he will redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
