Holman Christian Standard (CSB) New International Version (NIV)
1 I lift my eyes to You, the One enthroned in heaven. 1 I lift up my eyes to you, to you whose throne is in heaven.
2 Like a servant's eyes on His master's hand, like a servant girl's eyes on her mistress's hand, so our eyes are on the Lord our God until He shows us favor. 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 Show us favor, Lord, show us favor, for we've had more than enough contempt. 3 Have mercy on us, O LORD, have mercy on us, for we have endured much contempt.
4 We've had more than enough scorn from the arrogant [and] contempt from the proud. 4 We have endured much ridicule from the proud, much contempt from the arrogant.
