A song ·for going up to worship [of ascents; C perhaps sung while traveling to Jerusalem to celebrate an annual religious festival like Passover].
130 Lord, ·I am in great trouble [L from the depths], so I ·call out [pray] to you. 2 Lord, hear my voice; ·listen to my prayer for help [L let your ear pay attention to the sound of my supplication]. 3 Lord, if you ·punished people for all their sins [L observed/watched/guarded against iniquity], ·no one would be left [L who could stand…?], Lord. 4 But you forgive ·us [L your people], so you are ·respected [feared; Prov. 1:7].
5 I ·wait [hope] for the Lord ·to help me [L my soul hopes], and I ·trust [hope in] his word. 6 I ·wait for the Lord to help me [hope for the Lord] more than night watchmen wait for the ·dawn [morning], more than night watchmen wait for the ·dawn [morning].
7 People of Israel, put your hope in the Lord because he is ·loving [loyal] and ·able to save [L with him is abundant redemption]. 8 He will ·save [redeem] Israel from all their ·sins [iniquities].
