GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 I look up to you, to the one who sits enthroned in heaven. 1 I lift up my eyes to you, to you whose throne is in heaven.
2 As servants depend on their masters, as a maid depends on her mistress, so we depend on the LORD our God until he has pity 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 pity on us, O LORD. Have pity on us because we have suffered more than our share of contempt. 3 Have mercy on us, O LORD, have mercy on us, for we have endured much contempt.
4 We have suffered more than our share of ridicule from those who are carefree. We have suffered more than our share of contempt from those who are arrogant. 4 We have endured much ridicule from the proud, much contempt from the arrogant.
