Psalm 130 International Children’s Bible (ICB)

A Prayer for Mercy

A song for going up to worship.

130 Lord, I am in great trouble.
    So I call out to you for help.
Lord, hear my voice.
    Listen to my prayer for help.
Lord, if you punished people for all their sins,
    no one would be left.
But you forgive us.
    So you are respected.

I wait for the Lord to help me.
    I trust his word.
I wait for the Lord to help me
    more than night watchmen wait for the dawn,
    more than night watchmen wait for the dawn.

People of Israel, put your hope in the Lord
    because he is loving
    and able to save.
He will save Israel
    from all their sins.

Psalm 130 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 130

A song of ascents.

Out of the depths I cry to you, Lord;
    Lord, hear my voice.
Let your ears be attentive
    to my cry for mercy.

If you, Lord, kept a record of sins,
    Lord, who could stand?
But with you there is forgiveness,
    so that we can, with reverence, serve you.

I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits,
    and in his word I put my hope.
I wait for the Lord
    more than watchmen wait for the morning,
    more than watchmen wait for the morning.

Israel, put your hope in the Lord,
    for with the Lord is unfailing love
    and with him is full redemption.
He himself will redeem Israel
    from all their sins.
