New American Standard (NAS) New International Version (NIV)
1 To You I lift up my eyes, O You who are 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 the LORD 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 LORD, be gracious to us, For we are greatly filled with contempt. 3 Have mercy on us, O LORD, have mercy on us, for we have endured much contempt.
4 Our soul is greatly filled With the scoffing of those who are at ease, And with the contempt of the proud. 4 We have endured much ridicule from the proud, much contempt from the arrogant.
