The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 {A Song of degrees.} Unto thee do I lift up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest 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 masters, as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress, so our eyes [are directed] to Jehovah our God, until he be gracious unto 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 Be gracious unto us, O Jehovah, be gracious unto 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 scorning of those that are at ease, with the contempt of the proud. 4 We have endured much ridicule from the proud, much contempt from the arrogant.
