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