Psalm 131

A Childlike Spirit

A Davidic song of ascents.

Lord, my heart is not proud;
my eyes are not haughty.(A)
I do not get involved with things
too great or too difficult for me.(B)
Instead, I have calmed and quieted myself
like a little weaned child with its mother;
I am like a little child.(C)

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