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.
