NEW WORLD TRANSLATION OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURES (2013 REVISION)

Psalms 123:1-4

OUTLINE OF CONTENTS

  • Looking to Jehovah for favor

    • ‘Like servants, we look to Jehovah’ (2)

    • ‘We have had our full share of contempt’ (3)

A Song of the Ascents. 123  To you I raise my eyes,+ You who are enthroned in the heavens.   As the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master, And the eyes of a servant girl to the hand of her mistress, So our eyes look to Jehovah our God+ Until he shows us favor.+   Show us favor, O Jehovah, show us favor, For we have had our full share of contempt.+   We have had our full share of* ridicule from the self-assured And the contempt of the arrogant.
