Psalms Chapter 131

Psalms 131:1

psa 131:1

"A Song of degrees of David." LORD, (a) my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great (b) matters, or in things too high for me.

(a) He sets forth his great humility as an example to all rulers and governors.

(b) Which pass the measure and limits of his calling.

Psalms 131:2

psa 131:2

Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother: my soul [is] even as a (c) weaned child.

(c) He was void of ambition and wicked desires.
