American Standard Version (ASV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Unto thee do I lift up mine eyes, O thou that sittest in the heavens. 1 I lift up my eyes to you, to you whose throne is in heaven.
2 Behold, as the eyes of servants [look] unto the hand of their master, As the eyes of a maid unto the hand of her mistress; So our eyes [look] unto Jehovah our God, Until he have mercy upon us. 2 As the eyes of slaves look to the hand of their master, as the eyes of a maid look to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the LORD our God, till he shows us his mercy.
3 Have mercy upon us, O Jehovah, have mercy upon us; For we are exceedingly filled with contempt. 3 Have mercy on us, O LORD, have mercy on us, for we have endured much contempt.
4 Our soul is exceedingly filled With the scoffing of those that are at ease, And with the contempt of the proud. 4 We have endured much ridicule from the proud, much contempt from the arrogant.
