28 Listen[a] to Your servant’s prayer and his petition,(A)
Lord my God,
so that You may hear the cry and the prayer
that Your servant prays before You today,
29 so that Your eyes may watch over this temple night and day,(B)
toward the place where You said:
My name will be there,(C)
and so that You may hear the prayer
that Your servant prays toward this place.
30 Hear the petition of Your servant(D)
and Your people Israel,
which they pray toward this place.(E)
May You hear in Your dwelling place in heaven.
May You hear and forgive.
