A song of ascents,2 by David.
131:1 O Lord, my heart is not proud,
nor do I have a haughty look.3
I do not have great aspirations,
or concern myself with things that are beyond me.4
131:2 Indeed5 I am composed and quiet,6
like a young child carried by its mother;7
I am content like the young child I carry.8
131:3 O Israel, hope in the Lord
now and forevermore!
