1 A Song of the Ascents. From depths I have called Thee, Jehovah. 2 Lord, hearken to my voice, Thine ears are attentive to the voice of my supplications.
3 If iniquities Thou dost observe, O Lord, who doth stand? 4 But with Thee is forgiveness, that Thou mayest be feared.
5 I hoped for Jehovah -- hoped hath my soul, And for His word I have waited. 6 My soul is for the Lord, More than those watching for morning, Watching for morning!
7 Israel doth wait on Jehovah, For with Jehovah is kindness, And abundant with Him is redemption. 8 And He doth redeem Israel from all his iniquities!
