Psalm 130: Calling From the Depths

Joey Weisenberg, the founder of Hadar's Rising Song Institute, performs a selection from Psalm 130.

Psalm 130 is one of 15 chapters from the Book of Psalms known as a “song of ascent” on account of its first words: shir hama’alot. But its most famous passage suggests just the opposite: Mima’amakim karahteechah adonai. From the depths I call out to You, O Lord.
