(129-1) <A gradual canticle.> Out of the depths I have cried to thee, O Lord:
(129-2) Lord, hear my voice. Let thy ears be attentive to the voice of my supplication.
(129-3) If thou, O Lord, wilt mark iniquities: Lord, who shall stand it.
(129-4) For with thee there is merciful forgiveness: and by reason of thy law, I have waited for thee, O Lord. My soul hath relied on his word:
(129-5) my soul hath hoped in the Lord.
(129-6) From the morning watch even until night, let Israel hope in the Lord.
