Psalm 123

Psalm 123

A Song of degrees.
1Unto thee lift I up mine eyes,
O thou that dwellest in the heavens.
2Behold, as the eyes of servants
Look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress;
So our eyes wait upon the LORD our God,
Until that he have mercy upon us.
3Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us:
For we are exceedingly filled with contempt.
4Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scorning of those that are at ease,
And with the contempt of the proud.
