Psalm 123

A Song of Ascents. 1To you I do lift up my eyes, you who sit in the heavens. 2Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master, as the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress; so our eyes look to TheIAM, our God, until he has mercy on us. 3Have mercy on us, TheIAM, have mercy on us, for we have endured much contempt. 4Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scoffing of those who are at ease, with the contempt of the proud.
