Psalm 123

1 I raise my eyes to fix my gaze on You,
       for Your throne resides in the heavens.
2 Just as the eyes of servants
       closely watch the hand of their masters,
Just as a maid carefully observes
       the slightest gesture of her mistress,
In the same way we look to You, Eternal One,
       waiting for our God to pour out His mercy upon us.
3 O Eternal One, show us Your mercy. We beg You.
       We are not strangers to contempt and pain.
4 We have suffered more than our share
        of ridicule and contempt from self-appointed critics who live easy lives
        pompously display their own importance.

Psalm 124
8: Our help has come in the name of the Eternal,
      the Maker of heaven and earth!

  1. Psalm 123
    To You I Do Lift Up My Eyes
    A Song of Ascents.
    1 To You I lift up my eyes, O You who are enthroned in the heavens!
    2 Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master, As the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress, So our eyes look to the LORD our God, Until He is gracious to us.…

    Psalm 16:8
    I keep my eyes always on the LORD. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.

    Psalm 124
    A song by David for going up to worship.
    1 “If the Lord had not been on our side. . .”

    7 We escaped like a bird caught in a hunter’s trap.
    The trap was broken, and we escaped.
    8 Our help is in the name of the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth.
