Psalm 131 New King James Version (NKJV)

Simple Trust in the Lord

A Song of Ascents. Of David.

131 Lord, my heart is not [a]haughty,
Nor my eyes [b]lofty.
Neither do I [c]concern myself with great matters,
Nor with things too [d]profound for me.

Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul,
Like a weaned child with his mother;
Like a weaned child is my soul within me.

O Israel, hope in the Lord
From this time forth and forever.

Psalm 131 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

O Lord, my heart is not conceited.
    My eyes do not look down on others.
    I am not involved in things too big or too difficult for me.
Instead, I have kept my soul calm and quiet.
    My soul is content as a weaned child is content in its mother’s arms.
Israel, put your hope in the Lord now and forever.

Psalm 132

A song for going up to worship.
