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.

Psalms 130

Psalm 130

Ångerpsalm. Herren förlåter den som bekänner sin synd

1En vallfartssång.

Ur djupen ropar jag till dig, Herre.

2Herre, hör mitt rop,

lyssna till mina böner.

3Om du, Herre, håller räkning på synder,

Herre, vem kan då bestå?

4Men hos dig finns förlåtelse,

och därför fruktar man dig.

5Jag väntar på Herren,

jag väntar och sätter mitt hopp till hans ord.

6Jag väntar på Herren mer än väktarna på morgonen,

ja, mer än väktarna på morgonen.

7Israel, hoppas på Herren,

för hos Herren finns nåd,

hos honom finns full befrielse.

8Han ska befria Israel från alla deras synder.
