July 4, Psalms 131, My Quiet Soul

1O Lord, my heart is not proud, nor my eyes haughty;

Nor do I involve myself in great matters,

Or in things too difficult for me.

2Surely I have composed and quieted my soul;

Like a weaned child rests against his mother,

My soul is like a weaned child within me.

3O Israel, hope in the Lord

From this time forth and forever.
