The Psalms

Psalm 131

David, professing his humility, 1, 2, exhorts Israel to trust in God, 3.

1 [A Song of Degrees of David.] LORD, my heart is not haughty, nor my eyes lofty, neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me.

2 Surely I have behaved and quieted myself as a child who is weaned by his mother. My soul is even as a weaned child.

3 Let Israel hope in the LORD from now on and forever.


Matthew Henry Commentary - Psalms, Chapter 131
