Rashi's Commentary:

Chapter 130

1. A song of ascents. From the depths I have called You, O Lord.   א. שִׁיר הַמַּעֲלוֹת מִמַּעֲמַקִּים קְרָאתִיךָ יְהֹוָה:
2. O Lord, hearken to my voice; may Your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications.   ב. אֲדֹנָי שִׁמְעָה בְקוֹלִי תִּהְיֶינָה אָזְנֶיךָ קַשֻּׁבוֹת לְקוֹל תַּחֲנוּנָי:
3. O God, if You keep [a record of] iniquities, O Lord, who will stand?   ג. אִם עֲו‍ֹנוֹת תִּשְׁמָר יָהּ אֲדֹנָי מִי יַעֲמֹד:
4. For forgiveness is with You, in order that You be feared.   ד. כִּי עִמְּךָ הַסְּלִיחָה לְמַעַן תִּוָּרֵא:
For forgiveness is with You: You did not give permission to an agent to forgive, as it is said (Exod. 23:21): “for he will not forgive your transgression.”  
in order that You be feared: for this, so that no man will rely on the forgiveness of another. (I found this.)  
5. I hoped, O Lord; yea, my soul hoped, and I wait for His word.   ה. קִוִּיתִי יְהֹוָה קִוְּתָה נַפְשִׁי וְלִדְבָרוֹ הוֹחָלְתִּי:
I hoped, O Lord; yea, my soul hoped: one hope after another hope, similar to (above 27:14): “Hope for the Lord, be strong and He will give your heart courage, and hope,” and similar to “among those who await the morning, those who await the morning.”  
6. My soul is to the Lord among those who await the morning, those who await the morning.   ו. נַפְשִׁי לַאדֹנָי מִשֹּׁמְרִים לַבֹּקֶר שֹׁמְרִים לַבֹּקֶר:
My soul is to the Lord among those who await the morning: I am among those who look forward to the redemption.  
those who await the morning: They look forward and repeatedly look forward for one end after another end. (I found this.)  
7. Israel, hope to the Lord, for kindness is with the Lord and much redemption is with Him.   ז. יַחֵל יִשְׂרָאֵל אֶל יְהֹוָה כִּי עִם יְהֹוָה הַחֶסֶד וְהַרְבֵּה עִמּוֹ פְדוּת:
8. And He will redeem Israel from all their iniquities.   ח. וְהוּא יִפְדֶּה אֶת יִשְׂרָאֵל מִכֹּל עֲוֹנוֹתָיו:
