Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 The song of degrees. To thee I have raised mine eyes; that dwellest in heavens. (I raise up my eyes to thee; who livest in heaven.) 1 I lift up my eyes to you, to you whose throne is in heaven.
2 Lo! as the eyes of servants be in the hands of their lords. As the eyes of the handmaid be in the hands of her lady; so our eyes be to our Lord God, till he have mercy on us. (Lo! like the eyes of the servant look to the hand of his lord; and like the eyes of the servantess look to the hand of her lady; so let our eyes look to the Lord our God, until he 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 Lord, have thou mercy on us, have thou mercy on us; for we be much filled with despising (for we be greatly despised). 3 Have mercy on us, O LORD, have mercy on us, for we have endured much contempt.
4 For our soul is much filled; we be shame to them that be abundant with riches, and despising to proud men. (For our soul is filled full, with the scorn of those who have abundant riches; and with disdain from the proud.) 4 We have endured much ridicule from the proud, much contempt from the arrogant.
