Psalm 123

Our Eyes Look to the Lord Our God

A Song of Ascents.

1 To you I 1lift up my eyes, O you who are 2enthroned in the heavens!
2 Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master, as the eyes of a maidservant to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the LORD our God, till he has mercy upon us.
3 3Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us, for we have had more than enough of 4contempt.
4 Our soul has had more than enough of 5the scorn of 6those who are at ease, of the contempt of 7the proud.
