Read Psalm 123


Read Psalm 123

Lord, I look up to you,
    up to heaven, where you rule.
2 As a servant depends on his master,
    as a maid depends on her mistress,
so we will keep looking to you, O Lord our God,
    until you have mercy on us.

3 Be merciful to us, Lord, be merciful;
    we have been treated with so much contempt.
4 We have been mocked too long by the rich
    and scorned by proud oppressors.


This Psalm gives a voice to those who are the most oppressed by their circumstances.  Teaching us to trust in God's power to lift us up when we are pushed down.


Be merciful to us, Lord, be merciful.
