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.

New International Reader's Version

Psalm 130

Psalm 130

A song for those who go up to Jerusalem to worship the Lord.

Lord, I cry out to you
    because I’m suffering so deeply.
Lord, listen to me.
    Pay attention to my cry for your mercy.

Lord, suppose you kept a close watch on sins.
    Lord, who then wouldn’t be found guilty?
But you forgive.
    So we can serve you with respect.

With all my heart I wait for the Lord to help me.
    I put my hope in his word.
I wait for the Lord to help me.
    I want his help more than night watchmen want the morning to come.
I’ll say it again.
    I want his help more than night watchmen want the morning to come.
Israel, put your hope in the Lord,
    because the Lord’s love never fails.
    He sets his people completely free.
He himself will set Israel
    free from all their sins.
