1A song of ascents. By David:
Adonai, I call to you from the depths;
2hear my cry, Adonai!
Let your ears pay attention
to the sound of my pleading.
3Yah, if you kept a record of sins,
who, Adonai, could stand?
4But with you there is forgiveness,
so that you will be feared.
5I wait longingly for Adonai;
I put my hope in his word.
6Everything in me waits for Adonai
more than guards on watch wait for morning,
more than guards on watch wait for morning.
7Isra’el, put your hope in Adonai!
For grace is found with Adonai,
and with him is unlimited redemption.
8He will redeem Isra’el
from all their wrongdoings.
