1 Unto thee lift I up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens. 2 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. 3 Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us: for we are exceedingly filled with contempt. 4 Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scorning of those that are at ease, and with the contempt of the proud.

1 Sarah R = "Does God really live in the sky? Not literally. God is a spiritual being, outside of our world and yet interacting in it with us (and coming to us in physical form when incarnated as Jesus). While Heaven and God's throne are described in the Bible as actual places, they are not places in the sense that we could take a rocketship there. We can be assured though that God is near. The Bible talks about God being omnipresent - everywhere at once, seeing and knowing everything."
2 Sarah R = "The Voice Bible paraphrase version, "Like servants, alert to their master’s commands, like a maiden attending her lady, We’re watching and waiting, holding our breath, awaiting your word of mercy.""
3 Sarah R = ""Mercy as the Foundation of God's Covenant. Mercy and hesed [d,s,j], God's covenant love, are integrally related. So close is the relationship that hesed [d,s,j] sometimes is to be viewed in terms of mercy. In this relationship, mercy then comes to be seen as the quality in God that directs him to forge a relationship with people who absolutely do not deserve to be in relationship with him. Mercy is manifested in God's activity on behalf of his people to free them from slavery; it is neither theory nor principle. As the passages taken up with the establishment of the covenant with Israel show, God's mercy is a driving force in leading him to create a relationship with Israel ( Exod 34:6 ; Deut 4:31 ; 13:17 ; Hosea 2:19 ); its meaning through hesed [d,s,j] extends to that of loyalty based on merciful love, a loyalty that maintains the covenant despite Israel's own resistance ( Psalm 25:6 ; 40:11 ; 69:17 ; Isa 63:7 ; Jer 16:5 ; 42:12 ; Hosea 2:19 ; Joel 2:13 ; Zech 7:9 ). God's mercy is mediated through the covenant, by which he becomes the God of a people promising protection, provision, guidance, and his constant presence ( Psalm 23:6 ). Because God is the initiator, the mercy he gives is gracious, unmerited, undeserved ( Gen 19:16 ; Exod 33:19 ; Jer 42:12 ). Within the relationship, God's mercy is thus closely linked to forgiveness ( Exod 34:9 ; Num 14:19 ;Jer 3:12 ; Dan 9:9 ), a more basic disposition of compassion ( Deut 13:17 ) leading to forgiveness, and to the steadfast love by which God sustains the covenant and repeatedly forgives his people ( Psalm 25:6 ;40:11 ; 51:1 ; 69:16 ; 103:4 ; 119:77 ; Jer 3:12 ; 16:5 )."- Baker's Evangelical Dictionary of Bible Theology"
