Psalms – Chapter 123

Enough is Enough

By Rabbi Jack Abramowitz

A mere four verses:

David says he raises his eyes to G-d, Who dwells in Heaven. He looks to G-d for his support like a servant looks towards his master and like a servant-girl looks towards her mistress. The master or mistress has the power to reward and punish. So, too, we look to G-d, hoping that He will treat us well, since we were abused in our exiles. Our souls are full of the mistreatment we’ve suffered at the hands of our tormentors, so we’ve really had quite enough of that and are ready for a change.
