Psalm 131

Childlike Trust in the Lord.

A Song of Ascents, of David.

131 Lord, my heart is not proud, nor my eyes arrogant;
Nor do I [a]involve myself in great matters,
Or in things too [b]difficult for me.
I have certainly soothed and quieted my soul;
Like a weaned child resting [c]against his mother,
My soul [d]within me is like a weaned child.
Israel, wait for the Lord
From this time on and forever.
