A Song of degrees.
1 Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O LORD.
2 Lord, hear my voice: let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications.
3 If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand?
4 But forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared.
5 I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.
6 My soul for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning: they that watch for the morning.
7 Let Israel hope in the LORD: for with the LORD mercy, and with him plenteous redemption.
8 And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
