1 Lord, I look upward to you, you who live in heaven.
2 Slaves depend on their masters, and a female servant depends on her mistress. In the same way, we depend on the Lord our God; we wait for him to show us mercy.
3 Have mercy on us, Lord. Have mercy on us, because we have been insulted.
4 We have suffered many insults from lazy people and much cruelty from the proud. A song for going up to worship. Of David.
