Psalms 123
NRSV
123
Supplication for Mercy
A Song of Ascents.
1To you I lift up my eyes,
O you who are enthroned in the heavens!
2As the eyes of servants
look to the hand of their master,
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 upon us.
3Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us,
for we have had more than enough of contempt.
4Our soul has had more than its fill
of the scorn of those who are at ease,
of the contempt of the proud.
