The fifth book of Psalms, song 123, New English Translation
Psalm 123 A song of ascents. 1
I look up toward you, the one enthroned in heaven. 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, so my eyes will look to the LORD
, our God, until he shows us favor. 3
Show us favor, O LORD
, show us favor! For we have had our fill of humiliation, and then some. 4
We have had our fill of the taunts of the self-assured, of the contempt of the proud.
