Psalms 131:1-3

  • Contented like a weaned child

    • Not aspiring for things too great (1)

A Song of the Ascents. Of David. 131  O Jehovah, my heart is not haughty,Nor are my eyes lofty;+Nor do I aspire to things too great,+Or to things that are beyond me.   No, but I have calmed and quieted my soul*+Like a weaned child with its mother;I am* contented like a weaned child.   Let Israel wait for Jehovah+From now on and forever.
