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.

诗篇 130

患难中求助的祷告

上圣殿朝圣之诗。

1耶和华啊!
我在绝望的深渊中向你呼求。
主啊,求你垂听我的呼求,
侧耳听我的祈求。
主耶和华啊,
倘若你追究我们的罪过,
谁能站得住呢?
然而,你赦免我们,
所以你当受敬畏。

我等候耶和华,一心等候祂,
祂的话语是我的盼望。
我一心等候耶和华,
比守夜的盼望天明还要迫切,
比守夜的盼望天明还要迫切。
以色列啊,要信靠耶和华,
因为祂有慈爱,能完全救赎我们。
祂必把以色列从罪恶中救赎出来。
