Parallel Verses
New American Standard Bible
Yet our eyes failed, Looking for help was useless; In our watching we have watched For a nation that could not save.

King James Bible
As for us, our eyes as yet failed for our vain help: in our watching we have watched for a nation that could not save us.

Holman Christian Standard Bible
All the while our eyes were failing as we looked in vain for assistance; we watched from our towers for a nation that refused to help.
