New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
1 To you I lift up my eyes, O you who are enthroned in the heavens! 1 I lift up my eyes to you, to you whose throne is in heaven.
2 As the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master, as the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the Lord our God, until he has 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 have had more than enough of contempt. 3 Have mercy on us, O LORD, have mercy on us, for we have endured much contempt.
4 Our soul has had more than its fill of the scorn of those who are at ease, of the contempt of the proud. 4 We have endured much ridicule from the proud, much contempt from the arrogant.
