Psalm 131Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

A song of David for going up to the Temple.

131 Lord, I don’t feel proud.
    I don’t see myself as better than others.
I am not thinking about doing great things
    or reaching impossible goals.
No, right now I am calm and quiet,
    like a child after nursing,
    content in its mother’s arms.[a]

Israel, trust in the Lord.
    Trust in him now and forever!
