Psalm 123 (NIV),
A song of ascents.
1 I lift up my eyes to you, to you whose throne is in heaven. 2 As the eyes of slaves look to the hand of their master, as the eyes of a maid look to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the Lord our God, till he shows us his mercy. 3 Have mercy on us, Lord, have mercy on us, for we have endured much contempt. 4 We have endured much of ridicule from the proud, much contempt from the arrogant.
