Today's New International Version (TNIV) New International Version (NIV)
1 I lift up my eyes to you, to you who sit enthroned in heaven. 1 I lift up my eyes to you, to you whose throne is in heaven.
2 As the eyes of slaves look to the hand of their master, as the eyes of a female slave look to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the LORD our God, till he shows us his mercy. 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 on us, for we have endured no end of contempt. 3 Have mercy on us, O LORD, have mercy on us, for we have endured much contempt.
4 We have endured no end of ridicule from the arrogant, of contempt from the proud. 4 We have endured much ridicule from the proud, much contempt from the arrogant.
