The Webster Bible (WBT) New International Version (NIV)
1 A Song of degrees. To thee I raise my eyes, O thou that dwellest 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, [and] as the eyes of a maiden to the hand of her mistress; so our eyes [wait] upon the LORD our God, until he shall have mercy upon 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 upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon 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 scorning of those that are at ease, [and] with the contempt of the proud. 4 We have endured much ridicule from the proud, much contempt from the arrogant.
