The godly profess their confidence in God,
Psalms 123:1 Unto the lift I vp myne eyes, thou yt dwellest in the heauens. Psalms 123:2 Beholde, euen as the eyes of seruautes loke vnto the handes of their masters: and as the eyes of a mayden vnto the handes of hir mastresse, euen so oure eyes wayte vpon the LORDE or God, vntill he haue mercy vpo vs.
and pray to be delivered from contempt.
Psalms 123:3 Haue mercy vpo vs (o LORDE) haue mercy vpon vs, for we are vtterly despysed. Psalms 123:4 Oure soule is fylled wt the scornefull reprofe of the welthy, & with ye despitefulnesse of the proude.
