Psalms 123

Psalm 1231

A song of ascents.2

123:1 I look up3 toward you,

the one enthroned4 in heaven.

123:2 Look, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master,

as the eyes of a female servant look to the hand of her mistress,5

so my eyes will look to the Lord, our God, until he shows us favor.

123:3 Show us favor, O Lord, show us favor!

For we have had our fill of humiliation, and then some.6

123:4 We have had our fill7

of the taunts of the self-assured,

of the contempt of the proud.
