De profundis clamavi ad te, Domine

Language: Latin after the Hebrew (עברית)

 [Canticum graduum.]
  De profundis clamavi ad te, Domine;
2 Domine, exaudi vocem meam.
  Fiant aures tuæ intendentes 
  in vocem deprecationis meæ.
3 [Si iniquitates observaveris,
  Domine, Domine, quis sustinebit?
4 Quia apud te propitiatio est;
  et propter legem tuam sustinui te, Domine.
  Sustinuit anima mea in verbo ejus]1:
5 Speravit [anima mea in Domino]2.
6 [A custodia matutina usque ad noctem,
  speret Israël in Domino.]1

  et copiosa apud eum redemptio.

Uit de diepten

Language: Dutch (Nederlands) after the Latin

Uit de diepten heb ik tot U geroepen, Heer; 
Heer, luister naar mijn stem.
Mogen uw oren gespitst zijn 
op de stem van mijn smeekbede.
Als gij let op ongerechtigheden, Heer, 
Heer, wie zal het dan uithouden?
Want bij U is verzoening: 
om uw wet heb ik U hoog gehouden, Heer.
Mijn ziel heeft op zijn woord stand gehouden; 
mijn ziel heeft op de Heer gehoopt.
Vanaf de ochtendwacht tot 
aan de nacht moet Israel hopen op de Heer.
Want bij hem is mededogen, 
en overvloedig is bij hem verlossing.
En Hij zelf zal Israel bevrijden 
uit al zijn ongerechtigheden.
