King James Version

Psalm 131

1Lord, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me.

Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother: my soul is even as a weaned child.

Let Israel hope in the Lord from henceforth and for ever.

New International Reader's Version

Psalm 131

Psalm 131

A song for those who go up to Jerusalem to worship the Lord. A psalm of David.

Lord, my heart isn’t proud.
    My eyes aren’t proud either.
I don’t concern myself with important matters.
    I don’t concern myself with things that are too wonderful for me.
I have made myself calm and content
    like a young child in its mother’s arms.
    Deep down inside me, I am as content as a young child.

Israel, put your hope in the Lord
    both now and forever.
