Psalm 123

A song for going up to worship.

I look up to you,
    to the one who sits enthroned in heaven.
As servants depend on their masters,
    as a maid depends on her mistress,
    so we depend on Yahweh our Elohim
        until he has pity on us.
Have pity on us, O Yahweh.
    Have pity on us
    because we have suffered more than our share of contempt.
We have suffered more than our share of ridicule
    from those who are carefree.
    We have suffered more than our share of contempt
    from those who are arrogant.
