Return to Index
1Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O Jehovah.
2Lord, hear my voice: Let thine ears be attentive To the voice of my supplications.
3If thou, Jehovah, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand?
4But there is forgiveness with thee, That thou mayest be feared.
5I wait for Jehovah, my soul doth wait, And in his word do I hope.
6My soul [waiteth] for the Lord More than watchmen [wait] for the morning; [Yea, more than] watchmen for the morning.
7O Israel, hope in Jehovah; For with Jehovah there is lovingkindness, And with him is plenteous redemption.
8And he will redeem Israel From all his iniquities. Psalm 131 A Song of Ascents; of David.
