Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 A Song of the Ascents. Unto Thee I have lifted up mine eyes, O dweller in the heavens. 1 I lift up my eyes to you, to you whose throne is in heaven.
2 Lo, as eyes of men-servants [Are] unto the hand of their masters, As eyes of a maid-servant [Are] unto the hand of her mistress, So [are] our eyes unto Jehovah our God, Till that He doth favour 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 Favour us, O Jehovah, favour us, For greatly have we been filled with contempt, 3 Have mercy on us, O LORD, have mercy on us, for we have endured much contempt.
4 Greatly hath our soul been filled With the scorning of the easy ones, With the contempt of the arrogant! 4 We have endured much ridicule from the proud, much contempt from the arrogant.
