123:2 Behold, as the eyes of a 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.
(a) He compares the condition of the godly, to servants
who are destitute of all help, assuring that when all
other help fails, God is always at hand and like
123:3 Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us: for we are
b exceedingly filled with contempt.
(b) He declares that when the faithful are so full that
they cannot endure the oppression and scorning of the
wicked any more, there is always help above, if with
hungry desires they call for it.
