New King James Version (NKJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 A Song of Ascents. Unto You I lift up my eyes, O You who dwell 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 masters, As the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress, So our eyes look to the Lord our God, Until He has 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 Have mercy on us, O Lord, have mercy on 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 scorn of those who are at ease, With the contempt of the proud. 4 We have endured much ridicule from the proud, much contempt from the arrogant.
