Lexham English Bible (LEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 I lift up my eyes to you, the one enthroned 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] to the hand of their master, as [the] eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes [look] to Yahweh our God, until he is gracious to 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 to us, O Yahweh, be gracious to us, for long enough we have had our fill of contempt. 3 Have mercy on us, O LORD, have mercy on us, for we have endured much contempt.
4 For long enough our soul has had its fill of the derision of the self-confident, the contempt of [the] arrogant. 4 We have endured much ridicule from the proud, much contempt from the arrogant.
