New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 A song for the ascent to Jerusalem. I lift my eyes to you, O God, enthroned in heaven. 1 I lift up my eyes to you, to you whose throne is in heaven.
2 We look to the LORD our God for his mercy, just as servants keep their eyes on their master, as a slave girl watches her mistress for the slightest signal. 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, LORD, have mercy, for 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 We have had our fill of the scoffing of the proud and the contempt of the arrogant. 4 We have endured much ridicule from the proud, much contempt from the arrogant.
