Bible: Psalm 130:1-8

Psalm 130 1 

130:1 A song of ascents. 2 

From the deep water 3  I cry out to you, O Lord.

130:2 O Lord, listen to me! 4 

Pay attention to 5  my plea for mercy!

130:3 If you, O Lord, were to keep track of 6  sins,

O Lord, who could stand before you? 7 

130:4 But 8  you are willing to forgive, 9 

so that you might 10  be honored. 11 

130:5 I rely on 12  the Lord,

I rely on him with my whole being; 13 

I wait for his assuring word. 14 

130:6 I yearn for the Lord, 15 

more than watchmen do for the morning,

yes, more than watchmen do for the morning. 16 

130:7 O Israel, hope in the Lord,

for the Lord exhibits loyal love, 17 

and is more than willing to deliver. 18 

130:8 He will deliver 19  Israel

from all the consequences of their sins. 20
