1 A Canticle in steps. From the depths, I have cried out to you, O Lord.
2 O Lord, hear my voice. Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplication.
3 If you, O Lord, were to heed iniquities, who, O Lord, could persevere?
4 For with you, there is forgiveness, and because of your law, I persevered with you, Lord. My soul has persevered in his word.
5 My soul has hoped in the Lord.
6 From the morning watch, even until night, let Israel hope in the Lord.
7 For with the Lord there is mercy, and with him there is bountiful redemption.
8 And he will redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
12 Because of this, prophesy, and you shall say to them: Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I will open your tombs, and I will lead you away from your sepulchers, O my people. And I will lead you into the land of Israel.
13 And you shall know that I am the Lord, when I will have opened your sepulchers, and when I will have led you away from your tombs, O my people.
14 And I will place my Spirit within you, and you shall live. And I will cause you to rest upon your own soil. And you shall know that I, the Lord, have spoken and acted, says the Lord God."
