Psalm 123

 

mountains haze hills

To you I lift up my eyes,

O you who are enthroned in the heavens!

Behold, as the eyes of servants

look to the hand of their master,

as the eyes of a maidservant

to the hand of her mistress,

so our eyes look to the LORD our God,

till he has mercy upon us.

Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us,

for we have had more than enough of contempt.

Our soul has had more than enough of the scorn of those who are at ease,

of the contempt of the proud.

(Psalm 123 ESV)

 


God, my eyes look to you for mercy. My soul feels like it has had more than enough of contempt, of scorn. But I also feel Your goodness. My eyes look to you, my Lord and my God.
