Psalm 131

A song of David for those journeying to worship.

O Eternal One, my heart is not occupied with proud thoughts;
    my eyes do not look down on others;
I don’t even begin to get involved in matters too big, matters of faith, state, business,
    or the many things that defy my ability to understand them.
Of one thing I am certain: my soul has become calm, quiet, and contented in You.
    Like a weaned child resting upon his mother, I am quiet.
    My soul is like this weaned child.

O Israel, stake your trust completely in the Eternal—
    from this very moment and into the vast future.
