King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Unto thee lift I 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, 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. 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 LORD, 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 scorning 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.
