Psalms  ◦   Chapter 123

1I look to you,
the Creator God, who governs all reality from heaven.

2As a servant depends upon his master,
as a maid depends upon her mistress,
so we look to our Creator God,
depending upon his love and mercy.

3Have mercy and heal us, O Lord; have mercy and deliver us,
for we have endured so much mistreatment.

4We have tried, worn out from being ridiculed by the selfish
and mocked by the arrogant.
