“A song of the degrees.” Out of the depths have I called thee, O Lord. Lord, listen to my voice: let thy ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications. If thou, Lord, shouldst treasure up iniquities, O Lord, who would be able to stand? But with thee there is forgiveness, in order that thou mayest be feared. I hope for the Lord, my soul doth hope, and for his word do I wait. My soul [waiteth] for the Lord, more than they that watch for the morning expect the morning. Let Israel wait for the Lord; for with the Lord there is kindness, and with him is redemption in abundance; And he wilt surely redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
