Psalms 1231I look up ▼
▼ Heb “I lift my eyes.”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, ▼
▼ Servants look to their master for food, shelter, and other basic needs.
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. ▼
▼ Heb “for greatly we are filled [with] humiliation.”
We have had our fill ▼
▼ Heb “greatly our soul is full to it.”
of the taunts of the self-assured,
of the contempt of the proud.
▼ Psalm 124. Israel acknowledges that the Lord delivered them from certain disaster.
A song of ascents, by David.4 ▼
