Amplified Bible

Psalm 130

Hope in the Lord’s Forgiving Love.

A Song of [a]Ascents.

1Out of the [b]depths [of distress] I have cried to You, O Lord.

Lord, hear my voice!
Let Your ears be attentive
To the voice of my supplications.

If You, Lord, should keep an account of our sins and treat us accordingly,
O Lord, who could stand [before you in judgment and claim innocence]?

But there is forgiveness with You,
That You may be feared and worshiped [with submissive wonder].


I wait [patiently] for the Lord, my soul [expectantly] waits,
And in His word do I hope.

My soul waits for the Lord
More than the watchmen for the morning;
More than the watchmen for the morning.

O Israel, hope in the Lord;
For with the Lord there is lovingkindness,
And with Him is abundant redemption.

And He will redeem Israel
From all his sins.

Notas al pie

  1. Psalm 130:1 See Psalm 120 title note.
  2. Psalm 130:1 The Psalmist probably used “depths” figuratively, but the ancient rabbis understood this as an admonition to pray from a low place (in elevation) as a matter of humility.

Salme 130

Herren er villig til at tilgive

1En valfartssang.

Herre, jeg er dybt fortvivlet.
    Hør mit råb, oh, Gud!
        Lyt til min tryglende bøn!

Hvis du holdt regnskab med alle vore synder,
    hvem kunne da undslippe dommen?
Men jeg ved, du er villig til at tilgive,
    og det ansporer mig til ærefrygt.
Jeg venter på, at du griber ind, Herre,
    jeg ser frem til, at du taler til mig.
Jeg længes mere efter at høre fra dig,
    end nattevagten længes efter daggry.

Israels folk, sæt jeres håb til Herren,
    for han er trofast og barmhjertig.
Han står parat til at frelse,
    han vil redde os ud af syndens morads.
