Sunday Bible Reading – Psalm 123:1-2

Mar 8 bulbs 005

Psalm 123:1-2
Unto thee lift I up mine eyes,
O thou that dwellest in the heavens.
Behold, as the eyes of 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.

Unto thee lift I up mine eyes
We have no hope but in thee; our eyes look upward;
we have expectation from thy mercy alone.
As the eyes of servants
We now wait for thy commands,
feeling the utmost readiness
to obey them when made known to us.
The words may be understood
as the language of dependence also.
As slaves expect their support
from their masters and mistresses, s
o do we ours from thee, O Lord!
Or, As servants look to their masters and mistresses,
to see how they do their work,
that they may do it in the same way;
so do we, O Lord, that we may learn of thee,
and do thy work in thy own Spirit,
and after thy own method. Clarke’s Commentary

Lift up your eyes . . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
