Psalm 123

A Psalm for Christians

Living in a

Hostile World

Let's be honest with ourselves -

The world we live in

is often Hostile toward


and those who love Jesus.


Psalm 123

speaks of

the contempt

that comes against believers.

Psalm 123 is just 4 verses

Psalm 123 KJV

Unto thee lift I up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens.

2 Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress; so our eyes wait upon the Lord our God, until that he have mercy upon us.

3 Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us: for we are exceedingly filled with contempt.

4 Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scorning of those that are at ease, and with the contempt of the proud.

The following Psalm 123 video

has a Powerful Message

that will

Strengthen and Encourage



Prepare us to be faithful to you

every day.

Teach us to love like you love.



God's Word teaches us to say:

Bless me with life so that I can

continue to obey you.

Open my eyes to see wonderful things

in your Word.

I am but a pilgrim here on earth:

how I need a map -

and your commands are my chart and guide.

I long for your instructions

more than I can tell.

Psalm 119:17-20 TLB

Psalm 123


Psalm 123 NIV

The NIV translation has chosen some words

that can help us get in touch

with the emotions

we sometimes battle.

I lift up my eyes to you,

    to you who sit enthroned in heaven.

2 As the eyes of slaves look to the hand of their master,

as the eyes of a female slave look to the hand of her mistress,

so our eyes look to the Lord our God,

    till he shows us his mercy.

3 Have mercy on us, Lord, have mercy on us,

    for we have endured no end of contempt.

4 We have endured no end of ridicule from the arrogant,

    of contempt from the proud.
