Psalm 123

CJB 1 A song of ascents: I raise my eyes to you, whose throne is in heaven. NIV 1 I lift up my eyes to you, to you whose throne is in heaven. CJB 2 As a servant looks to the hand of his master, or a slave-girl to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes turn to ADONAI our God, until he has mercy on us. NIV 2 As the eyes of slaves look to the hand of their master, as the eyes of a maid look to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the LORD our God, till he shows us his mercy. CJB 3 Have mercy on us, ADONAI, have mercy; for we have had our fill of contempt, NIV 3 Have mercy on us, O LORD, have mercy on us, for we have endured much contempt. CJB 4 more than our fill of scorn from the complacent and contempt from the arrogant. NIV 4 We have endured much ridicule from the proud, much contempt from the arrogant.
