1 A Song of the Ascents.
From the depths I call to you, O Jehovah.
2 O Jehovah, hear my voice. May your ears pay attention to my pleas for help.
3 If errors were what you watch, O Jah, Then who, O Jehovah, could stand?
4 For with you there is true forgiveness, So that you may be held in awe.
5 I hope in Jehovah, my whole being hopes in him; I wait for his word.
6 I eagerly wait for Jehovah, More than watchmen wait for the morning, Yes, more than watchmen wait for the morning.
7 Let Israel keep waiting for Jehovah, For Jehovah is loyal in his love, And he has great power to redeem.
8 He will redeem Israel from all their errors.
