Psalm 131

Childlike Trust in the Lord.

A Song of Ascents, of David.

1O Lord, my heart is not proud, nor my eyes [a]haughty;
Nor do I [b]involve myself in great matters,
Or in things too [c]difficult for me.
Surely I have composed and quieted my soul;
Like a weaned child rests [d]against his mother,
My soul is like a weaned child [e]within me.
O Israel, hope in the Lord
From this time forth and forever.

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.
