Waiting for Yahweh (Ps 130:5-130:6)

“I wait for Yahweh.

My soul waits.

I hope in his word.

My soul waits for Yahweh

More than those who watch for the morning,

More than those who watch for the morning.”

This psalmist waits and hopes for Yahweh. His soul waits and hopes in the word of Yahweh. This waiting is greater than those who wait for the morning sunrise, a phrase that is mentioned twice so as not to forget it.
