Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 Lord, I look up to you, up to heaven, where you rule. 1 I lift up my eyes to you, to you whose throne is in heaven.
2 As a servant depends on his master, as a maid depends on her mistress, so we will keep looking to you, O Lord our God, until you have mercy on 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 merciful to us, Lord, be merciful; we have been treated with so much contempt. 3 Have mercy on us, O LORD, have mercy on us, for we have endured much contempt.
4 We have been mocked too long by the rich and scorned by proud oppressors. 4 We have endured much ridicule from the proud, much contempt from the arrogant.
