Psalm 130A Song of Ascents.
Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord!
2O Lord, hear my voice!
Let your ears be attentive
to the voice of my pleas for mercy!
3If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities,
O Lord, who could stand?
4 But with you there is forgiveness,
that you may be feared.
5I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,
and in his word I hope;
6 my soul waits for the Lord
more than watchmen for the morning,
more than watchmen for the morning.
7O Israel, hope in the Lord!
For with the Lord there is steadfast love,
and with him is plentiful redemption.
8 And he will redeem Israel
from all his iniquities.
Psalm 130 is recited as part of the liturgy for the High Holidays, sung responsively before the open Torah Ark during the morning service from Rosh Hashanah until Yom Kippur. A Song of Ascents. One of the Dead Sea Scrolls (11QPsa) attributes 3600 tehilim (songs of praise) plus other compositions to David. Other Psalms in the 130s by David are: 131, 133 and 138—145. In my opinion, this looks very possibly to be a Davidic Psalm.
A Psalm for the High Holy Days. Especially New Year's Day. Where we have hopes for Happiness for this new, new year. Moses tells us in Psalm 90, Moses prays for Happiness. Jesus in the Gospels goes where His Father leads Him for the day. Dealing with reasons people are unhappy. Many, many times - Jesus as God directs first for forgiveness. Displaying God needs no reason other than Love to forgive us our sins, flaws and weaknesses. Jesus begins healing with forgiveness.
Happiness is fine. The larger purpose and portion would be to be Blessed of the Lord God Almighty. This is not circumstantial and is endearingly Eternal. Steadfast.
We begin the New Year being blessed by God for His Glory. This Psalm is Jesus covering us by His Holy Name. The Blessing given to Aaron in 1500 B.C. states we are covered by the Name of the Lord.
Being the Easter People, Alleluia, we are Blessed to know to call upon the Name of Jesus.
We give Thanks being covered by the Name of Jesus. Knowing to call upon You to cover those we Love in Your Strong Name. Covering this prayer from those we know - to the communion of saints - all the way to the Nation and surrounding all the planet - where yesterday, today and tomorrow - You see Your Creation as Good. Amen and Amen in the Alleluia of Jesus.
