Psalm 131

Psalm 131

A song of ascents. Of David.

My heart is not proud, Lord,
    my eyes are not haughty;
I do not concern myself with great matters
    or things too wonderful for me.
But I have calmed and quietened myself,
    I am like a weaned child with its mother;
    like a weaned child I am content.

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

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.
