Chapter 130

Patient hope -- Redemption sure. (A Song of degrees.)

1)Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O Lord.

2)Lord, hear my voice; let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications.

3)If thou, Lord, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand?

4)But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared.

5)I wait for the Lord, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.

6)My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning; I say, more than they that watch for the morning.

7)Let Israel hope in the Lord; for with the Lord there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption.

8)And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
