New International Version (1984 Edition)

Psalms 130

A song of ascents.

1 Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord;

2 O Lord, hear my voice.
     Let your ears be attentive
     to my cry for mercy.
3 If you, O Lord, kept a record of sins,
     O Lord, who could stand?
4 But with you there is forgiveness;
     therefore you are feared.
5 I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,
     and in his word I put my hope.
6 My soul waits for the Lord
     more than watchmen wait for the morning,
     more than watchmen wait for the morning.
7 O Israel, put your hope in the Lord,
     for with the Lord is unfailing love
     and with him is full redemption.
8 He himself will redeem Israel from all their sins.
