You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Psaume 130: Du fond de l'abîme

Language: French (Français) after the Latin

Du fond de l'abîme je t'invoque,
Iahvé Adonaï.
Ecoute ma prière!
Que tes oreilles soient attentives
Aux accents de ma prière!

Si tu prends garde aux péchés,
Qui donc pourra tenir, Iahvé?
La clémence est en Iahvé
Afin qu'on le révère.

Mon âme espère en Iahvé,
J'espère, je compte sur sa parole
Plus que les guetteurs de la nuit
N'aspirent au matin.

Israël espère en Iahvé,
Car en Iahvé est la miséricorde.
Et l'abondance de la délivrance.

C'est lui qui délivrera Israel,
De toutes ses iniquités
En Iahvé est la clémence.
Ah! Iahvé Adonaï.
