Psalm 123 A Song of [B]Ascents. 123 1UNTO YOU do I lift up my eyes, O You Who are enthroned in heaven. 2Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master, and as the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the Lord our God, until He has mercy and loving-kindness for us. 3Have mercy on us, O Lord, have mercy on and loving-kindness for us, for we are exceedingly satiated with contempt. 4Our life is exceedingly filled with the scorning and scoffing of those who are at ease and with the contempt of the proud (irresponsible tyrants who disregard God’s law).
