The godly profess their confidence in God,
Psalms 123:1 A gradual canticle. To thee have I lifted up my eyes, who dwellest in heaven. Psalms 123:2 Behold as the eyes of servants are on the hands of their masters, As the eyes of the handmaid are on the hands of her mistress: so are our eyes unto the Lord our God, until he have mercy on us.
and pray to be delivered from contempt.
Psalms 123:3 Have mercy on us, O Lord, have mercy on us: for we are greatly filled with contempt. Psalms 123:4 For our soul is greatly filled: we are a reproach to the rich, and contempt to the proud.
