The fifth book of Psalms, song 123, Vulgate and King James Version

Psalm 123


   1 Canticum ascensionum. Ad te levavi oculos meos, qui habitas in caelis.
   2 Ecce sicut oculi servorum ad manus dominorum suorum, sicut oculi ancillae ad manus dominae suae, ita oculi nostri ad Dominum Deum nostrum, donec misereatur nostri.
   3 Miserere nostri, Domine, miserere nostri, quia multum repleti sumus despectione;
   4 quia multum repleta est anima nostra derisione abundantium et despectione superborum.

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.
