Psalms



The fifth book of Psalms, song 123, New English Translation and King James Version

Psalm 123

New English Translation


   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.

King James Version


   A Song of degrees.
   1 Unto thee lift I up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens.
   2 Behold, 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.
   3 Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us: for we are exceedingly filled with contempt.
   4 Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scorning of those that are at ease, and with the contempt of the proud.
