Psalm 123

A Song of Ascents.

To You I lift up my eyes,
    O You who dwell in the heavens.
Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master,
    and as the eyes of a maiden to the hand of her mistress,
so our eyes look upon the Lord our God,
    until He has mercy upon us.

Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us,
    for we have been completely filled with contempt.
Our soul is exceedingly filled with the ridicule of those who are at ease,
    and with the contempt of the proud ones.
