1 Unto thee do I lift up mine eyes,
O thou that sittest in the heavens.
2 Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of
As the eyes of a maid unto the hands of her mistress;
So our eyes look unto Jehovah our God,
Until he have mercy upon us.
1 See Psalm xviii. i. R. 279.
See Psalm xviii. 1. E. 326.
3 Have mercy upon us, O Jehovah, have mercy upon us;
For we are exceedingly filled with contempt.
4 Our soul is exceedingly filled
With the scoffing of those that are at ease,
And with the contempt of the proud.
1-4. (Prayer) to the Father to be present, because He has been utterly rejected by the Jewish nation. P. P.
