A Song of degrees.

Psalm 123:1 Unto thee lift I up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens.

Unto thee. After a believer calls on the Lord for salvation, and unites with a local assembly of believers, he must continue to call on the Lord daily, especially as he encounters “the contempt of the proud” (Psalm 123:4).

Psalm 123:2 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.

Psalm 123:3 Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us: for we are exceedingly filled with contempt.

Psalm 123:4 Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scorning of those that are at ease, and with the contempt of the proud.
