   The Book of Psalms.
The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
Book V
 
CXXIII
 
An Expectant Prayer for Jehovah’s Help
 
 
A Song of Ascents.
 
 
[1]  UNTO thee do I lift up mine eyes,
O thou that sittest in the heavens.
[2]  Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their master,
As the eyes of a maid unto the hand of her mistress;
So our eyes look unto Jehovah our God,
Until he have mercy upon us.
[3]  Have mercy upon us, O Jehovah, have mercy upon us;
For we are exceedingly filled with contempt.
[4]  Our soul is exceedingly filled
With the scoffing of those that are at ease,
And with the contempt of the proud.
