123:1 To you I do lift up my eyes,
you who sit in the heavens.
123:2 Behold, as 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 Yahweh, our God,
until he has mercy on us.
and pray to be delivered from contempt.
123:3 Have mercy on us, Yahweh, have mercy on us,
for we have endured much contempt.
123:4 Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scoffing of those who are at ease,
with the contempt of the proud.
