Salme 123

Bøn om hjælp

1En valfartssang.

Jeg løfter mit blik til dig, Herre,
    du, som troner i Himlen.
Som slaven iagttager,
    hvad hans herre gør,
som slavepigens øjne følger,
    hvad hendes frue foretager sig,
sådan er vores blik vendt mod dig, Gud,
    for vi ser frem til din nådige indgriben.
Hjælp os, Herre, vær barmhjertig imod os!
    Vi har fået nok af folks foragt,
vi er trætte af de stoltes spot,
    af de hovmodiges hån.

Psalm 123

Prayer for the Lord’s Help.

A Song of Ascents.

1To You I lift up my eyes,
O You who are enthroned in the heavens!
Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master,
As the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress,
So our eyes look to the Lord our God,
Until He is gracious to us.

Be gracious to us, O Lord, be gracious to us,
For we are greatly filled with contempt.
Our soul is greatly filled
With the scoffing of those who are at ease,
And with the contempt of the proud.
