Song of ascensions. From the depths I called thee, O Jehovah.
Deep calling to deep at the voice of thy cataracts: all thy breakers and thy waves passed over me.
The pains of death surrounded me, and the torrents of Belial made me afraid.
He will send forth from on high, he will take me, he will draw me out of many waters.
Turn to me and pity me, for I alone and afflicted.
And he will bring me up from the pit of destruction, from the clay of mire, and he will set my feet upon a rock, preparing my goings.
To the overseer upon the lilies; to David. Save me, O God, for the waters came even to the soul.
Deliver me from the mire and I shall not sink: I shall be delivered from those hating me, and from the depths of waters.
Who didst cause us to see great straits and evils; thou wilt turn back, thou wilt preserve us alive, and from the depths of the earth thou wilt turn back, thou wilt bring us up.
Thou didst set me in the pit beneath, in darknesses, in the shades.
The pains of death surrounded me, and the distresses of hades found me: shall find straits and affliction.
Song of ascensions. I will lift up mine eyes to the mountains from whence shall come my help.
Song of ascensions to David. I was glad in their saying to me, We will go to the house of Jehovah.
Song of ascensions. To thee dwelling in the heavens I lifted up mine eyes.
Song of ascensions to David. Unless Jehovah was to us, now shall Israel say,
Song of ascensions. They trusting in Jehovah are as mount Zion; it shall not be moved; remaining forever.
Song of ascensions. In Jehovah turning back the returning of we were as those dreaming.
Song of ascensions to Solomon. If Jehovah shall not build the house, they building it, in it labored in vain. If Jehovah shall not watch the city, he watching, watched in vain.
Song of ascensions Happy every one fearing Jehovah; going in his ways.
Song of ascensions. Much they pressed me from my youth, shall Israel now say:
They cut off my life in the pit, and cast a stone upon me.
And he will say, I called out of straits to me to Jehovah, and he will answer me; from the belly of hades I cried for help, thou heardest my voice.
