A Song of Ascents. To you I lift up my eyes, O you who are enthroned in the heavens! Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master, as the eyes of a maidservant to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the LORD our God, till he has mercy upon us. Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us, for we have had more than enough of contempt. Our soul has had more than enough of the scorn of those who are at ease, of the contempt of the proud.
The mercy of the Lord, God, the Almighty versus the scorn and contempt of the proud. Enough said? For sure! But the proud insists on making their contempt know and felt. Some may even be members of the “Faithful” who insist on making the rightness of their worship, the proper way of worship. Indeed is this not a works righteousness? Maybe even, a proclamation that their performance before the LORD is far superior to an other's simple faith?
