Song of Elevations
To You I lift my eyes, the One who dwells in heavens
Look! As eyes of servants to the hand of their masters
As eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress
so are our eyes to Yahu our God
until He shall be gracious to us
Grace to us Yahu, Grace to us!
Because we are stuffed with disrespect
She has been greatly stuffed, our soul
with the mocking of those that lounge
the disrespect of the proud
~ Psalm 123 ~
The irony here is that the writer is not acknowledging the oppressor as the master, but instead compares his relationship with God as servant to master, maid to mistress. How that must change the mood of an individual, seeing through the power of men and settling in the Hand of God. All children of God must learn to recognizes that men have no power that God has not already given them.
