A Song of Ascents.
Unto thee do I lift up mine eyes, O thou that sittest in the heavens.
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.
Have mercy upon us, O Jehovah, have mercy upon us;
For we are exceedingly filled with contempt.
Our soul is exceedingly filled With the scoffing of those that are at ease, And with the contempt of the proud.
